The Independent Mental Health Network (IMHN) is a network of organisations that represent a diverse community of past, current and future users of mental health services, as well as those with lived experience of mental health.

The website follows a similar design to the BIMHN website, using images in page headers to brighten up text heavy pages. A simple menu interface is used to direct users clearly. The site has a simple news / press section, an interactive map for branch locations and a protected members only section.

The IMHN branding was designed by the team at Union Design in Bristol.

Sunshine Hospital Radio is the station for Weston General Hospital, Weston-Super-Mare. In 2018 they wanted some additional help with finishing their refit of Studio 1 in time for their 40th anniversary.

Technical assistance was given to finish wiring equipment to their Studio 1 mixing desk and to provide a unique ceiling lighting system for the studio.

Using an Arduino based controller and RGB LED strips, lights in the ceiling can be controlled based on events in the studio. Lights will normally be yellow to represent Sunshine, red represents ‘mic live’ when any microphone is on, and flashing purple indicates an incoming call, or to indicate a call is still on the line. The Arduino accepts NC and NO inputs from the Telephone Balancer Unit and Sonifex S2 mixer to control the light conditions.

Source code for the Arduino controller is on GitHub.

Wellbeans Initiative is a social peer network based in Bristol, UK. The organisation wanted a new website to replace their basic static one-page site, and wanted a simple Content Management System to make copy edits and new pages, a contact form and dynamically display events.

The site uses a bright and warming orange and purple colour scheme which is based off their logo colours. Easy to read web fonts are utilised, and simple but effective icons are used throughout the website.

Events use a events plugin which is styled appropriately to produce a simple list. Ninja forms is utilised to generate the contact form, and any future forms on the website.
