CYMFed needed a stand-alone website to promote their "Faith In Action" children's award scheme which is a nationwide programme that any school and / or organisation can sign-up to take part. The website had to appeal, inform and act as a resource center for both the Awarding Authorities (Diocese) and the schools / organisations within these areas.


We met with the team behind CYMFed to understand their goals and aspirations for the site. This process helped us to understand every stage of the process in which the programme is operated and led us to get a better idea of how to approach the user interface (UI) design and user experience (UX).

Whilst the programme was still in it's early days we felt the website homepage needed to inform users with a quick overview, and provide the opportunity to delve further into the details of the award and it's several levels. Once users sign-up and find their local Awarding Authority, they can access a library of resources to help them with the day-to-day running of the programme.

With a brand logo and colour palette in place, we aimed to use these foundations to create a website that developed and strengthened the identity of the brand. We achieved this with the bold use of colour throughout the site to help it become more recognisable and leave a lasting impression with it's members.


Cuttlefish have been fantastic from the very start or our new website build. Every member of the team we have worked with has been helpful, professional and very skilled. Cuttlefish were able to build us a new site with short notice. From one meeting, they were able to create a design that surpassed our imagination and expectations. They continue to provide excellent support. - Dominique Finn, CYMFed Project Officer
