The Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy is the professional body in Ireland for humanistic and integrative psychotherapy. Avenir were pleased to be invited to modernise the association’s brand and to design and develop their new web site.
About the project
While the existing web site was well built and maintained with a rich archive of 1000s of articles, it had become dated and fragmented. A unified and integrated (pun intended!) solution was required which preserved the work already completed but provided more clarity, accessibility and professionalism.
Avenir started with redesigning the logo which had its origins as a drawing by one of the members. We recreated the symbol as a simpler shape with a stronger simpler fonts; the result being far more usable in the digital age. The web site design continued the tone of approachable professionalism. The major challenge of the project was migrating a significant cohort of members from the the now defunct “.tel” directory platform into a new directory system integrated into the WordPress content management system. We also provided hosting for the project and redirection services from the old listings. A challenging but enjoyable project, the Association’s new site should serve them well for the future!
Our Client Says
“I found Avenir through a previous example of their work. After coming across a particular website, I actually looked up who was the designer and after 10 minutes talking to David on the phone, I had a sense that this company was different than companies I had dealt with in the past. He listened, he was interested in the company, and he offered practical and simple solutions; ie not just a sales pitch.
IAHIP subsequently contracted Avenir to redesign our logo and create a new website. There was a lot of history in the original logo that needed to be preserved and yet give us a new and modern image. This was done swiftly, with patience and with plenty of choice. Our website has extensive content and we needed a modern website that was easy to navigate for members and a website that we can continually add to and develop. The patience, the attention to detail and sheer work that David and his team put into our website was remarkable and exceptionally good value for money.
Many Web development companies will design and build your website, however, I would recommend Avenir above any other company I have dealt with for their customer care, for their professionalism, for their integrity, their prompt follow up with any work requested and for the final work they produce; a website that you can be proud of. That’s what we’re all looking for in the first place.
Thank you David.”
