ABOUT THE FUTURE BIOMEDICINE FOUNDATION (LITH. ATEITIES BIOMEDICINOS FONDAS)
The Future Biomedicine Foundation, founded in 2022 by Professor Arvydas Janulaitis, a pioneer of modern biotechnology in Lithuania, and his team, focuses on promoting and funding biomedical research in Lithuania, with priority given to personalised medicine studies.
OUR TASK FOR CREATING THE WEBSITE
We were approached to create a website that would provide researchers with easy access to funding opportunities and make the application process as simple as possible. Our focus was on incorporating key SEO keywords.
HOW WE HANDLED IT?
We began by conducting a Q&A session to understand the main objective of attracting researchers and to streamline the funding application process. We developed a three-step approach where researchers could easily find out the funding criteria, download the application form, and securely submit the completed form.
PLANNING OF ABFONDAS.LT ARCHITECTURE
We researched and identified key SEO keywords and structured the information pieces and their relationships. Using Figma, we created a screen blueprint that depicted the layout of all the pages, including responsive design for mobile phones.
We conducted user research and competitor analysis to identify key elements, such as clarity of navigation, the credibility of the founders, and previously funded research, that future users of abfondas.lt might expect. We used the newly created brand (logo and main colours) to design the icons and buttons, typography and colour schemes, spacing, imagery, and created a solid yet innovative website.
Web development is an essential part of any website creation process. In the case of abfondas.lt, we selected WordPress as the platform for its flexibility, user-friendliness, and powerful content management system. The WordPress platform allowed us to create a customized website tailored to the specific needs of the Future Biomedicine Foundation.
We began by designing a custom theme that not only looked great but was also optimized for search engines and provided an excellent user experience. We used a responsive design approach to ensure that the website looked great on all devices, from desktops to mobile phones.
Additionally, we developed a smooth solution for collecting donations, which is crucial for a non-profit organization like the Future Biomedicine Foundation. To make the donation process as easy and secure as possible, we integrated a payment gateway and set up SSL encryption to protect users’ sensitive information.
Furthermore, we implemented best practices for website development, such as optimizing images to improve loading times, using clean code for faster performance, and ensuring compatibility with multiple browsers and devices. All of these measures contribute to the overall success of the website by providing a seamless user experience and improving search engine rankings.
TESTING OF THE ABFONDAS.LT AND DEPLOYING IT
Testing is a crucial step in the web development process, ensuring that the website functions correctly and meets the needs of its users. Our team conducted rigorous testing of abfondas.lt for functionality, usability, security, compatibility, and performance before making it live and accessible to the public.
We also paid special attention to the site’s SEO rankings, taking steps to optimize the site for search engines. This included using key SEO keywords in articles, optimizing images to reduce loading times, and writing meta descriptions to improve click-through rates. Additionally, we made sure that search engine crawlers could easily access the site and submitted an XML sitemap for better indexing. Backlinks were also considered to improve the site’s ranking.
The results of our testing and optimization efforts have been satisfying to both us and the Future Biomedicine Foundation. Ongoing work will continue to ensure the website remains functional, secure, and optimized for search engines, providing a positive experience for researchers and donors alike.

Abfondas.lt team section. For the team section of abfondas.lt, we had to consider the best way to present the Shareholders, the Team, the Council and the Board in a way that was both minimalistic and dignified. After careful consideration, we opted for a conservative design approach. However, we still wanted to incorporate an element of innovation, which we achieved through the use of fold-out person cards. This approach not only provides a unique and interactive user experience, but also allows for a more in-depth look at each team member's profile.
