Using a digital platform to give a new online life to this historic site
The new website needed to engage with locals and provide a platform for the newly formed Trust to share events, news, history and conservation work. Designed and built to work on all devices equally well, the site also has full CMS control allowing the members to change and update content.
The homepage leads with the three engagement areas of See, Learn and Join in, and the shapes of the tabs reflect the shape of the new roof.
Further news, events, appeals and a call to join the Friends can all be promoted on the homepage, controlled by the CMS.
Panel to sign up to e-newsletter and follow social media channels are constants across the whole site meaning that whichever way you have arrived at the site, whatever page, you are encouraged to join the community.
A strong Get involved section features graphic interpretations of the stunning mosaics on the walls of the original Church sanctuary. This graphic style is carried across print material and the interpretation sign on site.
The overall design of the website leads with large images of the site both contemporary and historical in order to celebrate its stunning architecture and heritage.
A permanent sign structure with interpretation panel to share the history, background and construction details of the Church with passers by.
