Launching the new Nautilus Union website – a brighter digital future for 22,000 members worldwide Digital Development
Nautilus’ existing website wasn’t performing well, especially on mobiles with low satellite internet bandwidth at sea. After some user research, it was agreed that a new site was needed.
From experienced seafarers to newly graduated sea cadets, the site had to respond to seafarers’ needs across the globe.
Whilst the site design is simple – based on atomic design techniques – it includes clever and useful features such as content personalisation based on user groups, shorter user journeys and optimised forms. We used technical delivery techniques employed by the likes of Uber and Twitter Lite.
And, just as important as making the site accessible and user friendly for seafarers, we ensured the site is just as easy to update for its editors, making content updates and creating pages on the fly a breeze.
“The proposed solution fitted perfectly with us and was managed into development, testing and deployment with the minimum of fuss”Roger Garside

With a speed increase of 6,600% in loading time at sea in comparison to the previous site, everyone can be sure the site will load quickly even out in the pacific ocean.
