Balloons Website

a website for bereaved children, young people, widowed parents and professionals


This project was a design challenge; how could we speak to children pre and post bereavement across a range of ages. How could we reach out to widowed parents looking for help supporting their children in grief and how could we also design the site which acted as a resource for professionals. Alongside this the design had to incorporate style preferences from across a range of charity trustees. 

The resulting design was a compromise, but one which has worked well for the charity over the last four years.

A key element of the site, is the bereavement book catalogue, which shuffles and suggests books relevant to the section visited on the website. Thus in the childrens section you are offered books divided in age categories and on the proffessionals page you will find books aimed at training and support.
