Citrus Client: Insight Imaging Wins Design Awards
We’re so happy to announce that our Citrus Studios Client: Insight Imaging, a provider of diagnostic imaging services won several awards: a Silver Award, 28th Annual Healthcare Advertising Awards* and a Bronze Award, Aster Awards** recently for the redesign of their web site!
Insight Imaging Case Study:
Insight Imaging, a provider of diagnostic imaging services, was faced with a common problem: inadequate communication between the company’s marketing and information technology divisions resulted in an in-house developed website that fell short of both groups’ expectations. To quote Insight Imaging, the project “resulted in a less effective and relevant over-arching online structure that does not speak to [our] core markets and customers.”
Citrus Studios was selected to remedy this disconnect. In addition to redesigning and developing the primary website, Insight Imaging also wanted to reimagine the company’s intranet and e-newsletter, thus ensuring a cohesive online presence. At the same time, Insight Imaging was redesigning its off-line marketing collateral and materials. Citrus was asked to develop concepts that would remain relevant and usable for at least four years.
Per Insight Imaging’s request, Citrus designed and launched a clean, modern site—easy to read, easy to navigate, and clear at differentiating the company’s two primary business sectors: fixed and mobile imaging centers. In the field of imaging, credibility is of key importance. To that end, Citrus focused on positioning the company as the go-to source for expert knowledge in the radiological/ diagnostic imaging space. Case studies and white papers featured on the site further affirm the company’s position as an imaging expert.
Citrus is currently working on phase two of the project: to redesign and develop Insight Imaging’s intranet. The intranet is a primary means of disseminating information to Insight Imaging’s 1,700 employees working in over 30 states. This internally accessible website is a heavily used resource, and boasts vast amounts of information. One of the key challenges in reworking the intranet is to synthesize and present this information in a manner that makes it as accessible as possible. A homepage “dashboard,” intuitive hierarchy, and clean navigation will put information at users’ fingertips.
E-newsletters—monthly electronic bulletins sent to all staff—work in conjunction with the intranet in terms of sharing information throughout the company. These highlight everything from company events to “fun facts” about the firm and its team members. Citrus redesigned the e-newsletters to reinforce the overall branding, as reflected in the website, intranet, and other marketing materials. One of Insight Imaging’s requests was the ability to easily update the e-newsletter template. With that in mind, Citrus prepared a modular format that provides maximum flexibility within an established design framework. Insight Imaging’s webmaster is able to update the e-newsletter template with ease.
When complete, Insight Imaging’s dual new sites—one external and one internal—as well as its new e-newsletter template will unify the company’s marketing and communication materials like never before. As a result, Insight Imaging will be able to more effectively communicate with its various audience groups, both internal and external.
