St John Ambulance Australia

What's the situation, Captain?

St John Ambulance Australia provides first aid training and services throughout the nation. Their Canberra based National Office needed a new website to promote their products and services, volunteer program, and initiatives. Working with their in-house web and marketing team, our objective was to promote the organisation's offerings on behalf of the state and territory offices.

What's the situation, Captain?

Mobile ready interface

St John identified that a growing number of people are accessing the organisation's content from their smart phone or tablet. Their new website scales and reflows its layout to best suit the device it's being viewed on, providing a great user experience for website visitors.

Mobile Responsive Web Design

Images look amazing

Images and graphics were prepared to take full advantage of the high resolution screens available on modern mobile devices. They're sharp, crisp, and look fantastic.

The site is smart about how it loads high resolution images as well. It'll take a look at what device a visitor is using, and how fast their internet connection is, and load appropriately sized images to keep everything nice and snappy.

Retina Display Ready

Touch friendly browsing

Touch friendly content and navigation make it easy to find and read content. Content is fully interactive and supports a combination of:

  • Text
  • Images and galleries
  • Videos
  • Links
  • External resources
  • File downloads

Community building

St John thrives on a maintaining a strong connection to the Australian community. The newsroom, media mentions and social media integration help St John keep in touch with the community, as well as share and communicate effectively with other media and press outlets.

Media Mentions

Media mentions provide a way for St John to curate and share external videos and news stories all in one place. Icons and titles make scanning mentions easy for viewers, and the accordion feature allows St John to provide context to the mention.

Media Mentions

Location aware

The National Office of St John Ambulance exists to support the State and Territory offices throughout Australia. By requesting a visitor's location, the website is able to display the contact details for the appropriate office. Visitors can also send their enquiries for training, products, and programs directly to their own State or Territory office straight from the National website.

What the client said

The team at Dash Media went above and beyond to rethink, modernise and rebuild the St John Ambulance Australia national website from the ground up.

From the conceptualisation through to completion, Dash Media utilised their technical expertise and creative flare to bring our new website to life. Dash Media encouraged us to step outside of our Joomla! comfort zone and try MODX as our content management system. A wise move. Come launch day our site had a fresh new look, was completely mobile friendly, search engine optimised and tracked with Google Analytics.

Not only do Dash Media produce a world-class product, but they’re friendly and explain every step of the way in plain English.

I highly recommend Dash Media to any business that wants a website with plenty of ‘wow’ whilst remaining clean and user friendly. And of course no headaches or nasty surprises during the development process.

Thanks again Dash Media for all of your hard work and dedication to our project.
