Creative technology agency DT, part of WPP AUNZ, has launched a new website redesign for HESTA, Australia’s largest health and community services industry super fund.
The redesign aims to refresh HESTA’s digital presence with a focus on making the brand stand out from its competitors, and deliver an easier-to-use and engaging experience for its members. DT’s remit included all digital, experience and content strategy, and the design and development for the new website.
HESTA’s executive – marketing strategy, Lisa Samuels, said the business needed to find the most effective and efficient way to communicate and engage its members and stakeholders through new digital communication channels.
“For HESTA, consolidating its many streams of content creation and publishing within a single digital platform presents a range of opportunities to better serve our member and other audiences,” said Samuels. “Our new website, not only achieves this strategic objective, it’s also easy to navigate, informative and engaging and enables HESTA to continue its progression as a digital-first organisation across all of its communications.
“The website redesign occurred at the same time that we conducted a major brand refresh, which allowed us to use HESTA’s vibrant new colour palette and other visual elements of the new brand to create a modern and bold web experience.”
Alisia Muscat, managing director of DT Melbourne, said the new website is the result of wide-ranging research, testing and design to produce a user-friendly and contemporary website which also helps deliver on HESTA’s core goal: to improve the retirement of every HESTA member.
“The website brings the new HESTA brand and brand promise to life,” said Muscat. “The collaborative approach between design, development and content teams shaped the successful outcome of this project, as well as a very hands-on effort from the client team.”
“The brief was about creating a single digital platform that would help HESTA members and stakeholders, to make informed decisions by providing the right information and empowering them to take action. The result is a website that clearly makes complex decisions easier through excellent information and design.” Muscat concluded.
