Breakthrough learning aids for Aphasia sufferers

Thursday, 10 September 2015

Barnsley-based creative agency Transmit Creative and experts at the University of Sheffield led by Dr Ruth Herbert have developed NEW learning aids for people with Aphasia.

The Stroke Association funded this project, to enable people with aphasia to help design aids that work for them. People with aphasia worked with the graphic design team and the University academics.

Aphasia is a condition caused by damage to parts of the brain responsible for understanding and use of language. It affects communication with other people, and the ability to read and write.

Roughly 150,000 people have a stroke each year in the UK – one every three and a half minutes. The Stroke Association estimates that more than 376,000 survivors of stroke are now living with aphasia.

Speech and language therapy is a critical part of the recovery process for people with aphasia, helping to restore the ability to communicate and to develop alternative ways of communicating, if necessary.

This project, which has seen the development of a series of learning aids for those with aphasia, features illustrations created in line with feedback from focus groups. The aids – a comprehensive set of cards for use by speech and language therapists and others – are already proving beneficial for people with aphasia and their families.

Following four years of research and development, the materials – which include over 200 visual aids created by Transmit Creative – are due to be rolled out UK-wide soon.

Jon Dale, Director of Transmit Creative says: “This has been a very interesting project to work on and it is incredibly rewarding to know that people across the UK are going to benefit from something designed by our team”

New website launched for Jointing Technologies

Tuesday, 21 July 2015

When Kathy Ayre took on her new role as Marketing Manager for Jointing Technologies, one of her first priorities was to project manage the design and development of a new website for the business.

Having worked well with Transmit Creative in her previous role at Nikken Europe, we were the obvious choice of partner to work with her on this, so in March we began working with Jointing Technologies and their new website was launched in June.

Jointing Technologies is the leading distributor of specialist power cable and accessories in the U.K.  They supply products and services that maintain, develop and connect the country’s electrical infrastructure and have millions of pounds in stock available from leading industry manufacturers. The new website offered an opportunity to look at improving how products were promoted, ensuring ease of update and accessibility of information. The old Jointing Technologies’ website was quite flat and needed creatively brightening up. In addition, the URLs were not search friendly, which meant it was difficult to navigate and it wasn’t mobile device responsive.

Having developed a more detailed specification for the new website, we got down to designing and building it and three months on, their website has been transformed into something quite different that can grow with the business.

New features included:

  • The brand has been refreshed to lift the look and feel of the business.
  • The site is fully content managed, which means that new products and content can be easily input internally.
  • Navigation is better and more intuitive. Visitors can now find their way around the site easily and information is readily accessible.
  • Improved e-commerce functionality.

Marketing Manager at Jointing Technologies, Kathy Ayre, said: “I’m delighted with our new website; it’s such a massive improvement. I knew from past experience that I could rely on Transmit Creative to do a good job and they didn’t let me down!”

New website launched for client Nikken Europe

Tuesday, 02 June 2015

Transmit Creative has been working with the team at Nikken Europe since March 2013, when their Marketing Manager asked us to develop some internal branding for their Rotherham site. Since then we’ve been kept busy developing technical brochures, exhibition stands, displays, digital marketing campaigns and, most recently, a new website.

Nikken were looking for a new website that would better support their European operations. They wanted the site to help increase the amount of web traffic, improve product awareness and ultimately generate new sales.

At the outset of the project there were a few key drivers that had to be fully understood to enable Transmit to get under the skin of the business requirements. Once we were fully clear on the specification we then produced a visual design before building the website, developing a bespoke content management system platform and facilitating its translation into four languages. We also ensure that the website was well optimised for all search engines.

So what has the new website achieved?

  • A bespoke, fully content managed platform enables Nikken to update the site internally
  • Consequently, product management is easier because internal teams can manage, maintain and update product specifications themselves.
  • The site is multi-lingual; it has been translated into four different languages – English, Spanish, French and German.
  • Information is more easily accessible in terms of navigation.
  • The content management platform means the site can grow with the business.
  • The brand has been refreshed.

Operations Director at Nikken Europe, Gary Williamson, said: “The new website has been launched and we're very happy. Our marketing team can easily keep the site up to date and the offer that we’re presenting is consistent across our entire European operation. This is a big step forward.”

We Have Moved!

Thursday, 22 January 2015

We've just completed our office relocation back to the Digital Media Centre in Barnsley. After seven or so years working closely with a major client in Sheffield, which took up the form of an office share, we've decided we needed a little more independence and room to grow. So no hard feelings Sheffield, it's not you, it's us ;)

Phone numbers and emails remain unchanged though, so give us a call and drop in and say "Hello".
