We’ve worked with the team behind Antibiotic Research UK for years. It’s our pleasure to help them manage their website and spread the word about their fantastic work. Without dedicated organisations like ANTRUK, a future without functioning antibiotics is all too possible.
Now, with the current COVID-19 global health crisis, they’re hard at work to help people with antibiotic resistant infections stay safe and informed. ANTRUK know just how much misinformation there is online and want to work to combat this.
The team at Antibiotic Research UK came to us with an idea that we loved making a reality. Together, we’ve launched ‘Ask ANTRUK’ on the site. Users can send in their COVID-19 and antibiotic related questions and ANTRUK’s experts will answer them.
Each day, a new question features on the site with a detailed answer. You can find out what the day’s question is on their homepage. An interactive element simulates typing out the question and offers a link through to the answer.
As the questions come in, the Ask ANTRUK page will be populated with each response. This will create a living resource full of useful, factual information about coronavirus and antibiotic resistance. You can help stop the spread of COVID-19 misinformation by using the Ask ANTRUK feature and sharing it with your friends and family.
As part of the Ask ANTRUK build, we also created a distinct brand for the service. We took the Antibiotic Research UK brand colours and came up with a bright, clear logo to help grab attention as well as to develop awareness for the feature.
This is a wonderful project to have worked on. We can’t wait to see how it develops and to read the answers to all your questions!
