Jacaranda Health is building a network of private maternity clinics in Kenya. The organization is innovating patient-centered maternity care that combines quality and affordability for low-income women.
Jacaranda Health approached me for help in converting their website to a system that they can easily update in-house. They also had a WordPress blog in a separate subdomain that they needed to integrate into the main site. To solve this problem I proposed to convert their website to use WordPress as CMS.
Instead of reusing the old webpage html codes, stylesheets and graphic assets, I decided to recreate the existing design into a new child theme of Woothemes Canvas thereby updating the backend codes to current html5 standard. This move also gave the new site extra features like responsive design, editable slideshows and leveraged the built-in magazine template of Canvas for displaying the blog posts.
I built additional components to make website management easier for the client. I added a custom post type for managing information of team members and staff. I also built a simple job posting page.
Jacaranda Maternity is the sister website of Jacaranda Health. The aim of this site is to give information about high-quality maternity hospitals run by Jacaranda Health.
I created an original design inspired by the simple layout of Jacaranda Health website. And just like in Jacaranda Health, I also used Woothemes Canvas.
