The body font was changed from serif to sans serif with improved letter spacing to make it easier to read.
News separated from releases, with images where relevant. The dedicated news page highlights new content on the website and the DMDD blog, upcoming events we'll be attending, and the DMDD social channels.
Reduced the height of the page to make it easier to see all the content on laptop devices.
Made the background image on the homepage much larger and more of a feature, at the same time reducing file sizes of these random images.
Added 'ticker' text to the homepage, providing easily scannable bite size chunks about the DMDD programme, told in a logical 'story'.
Added search box to the homepage enabling users to easily search for genes or phenotypes, without having to click on a button in the navigation.
Added newsletter signup to the homepage to encourage users to signup to receive regular newsletter updates.
Changed the global navigation menu at the top of the page to a 'mega menu' that provides users with more information about the sections of the website, to help ensure that where they end up is where they intended to be, and also makes it easier to discover other parts of the website.
New and revised content, especially:
About the DMDD programme
About the mutants
Wild-type gene expression profiling
Research protocols added, as well as new section on HREM.
Communications materials page created with downloadable, shareable assets.
CSS styling review and tidy up
Removed accordion to make it more immediately apparent what data is available for each embryo at a glance (without multiple clicks).
Moved from RHS of all pages, where it was missed, to within the 'utilities' section at the top right of each page, where users expected to find it.
