Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust – New Site!
Published: 22nd Jun 2009 in Ethical Web Design
We are very happy to launch today the brand new Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust website.
Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is part of the national Wildlife Trusts network and the leading conservation charity in the area. For a long time they had been using FrontPage to update their old website, which had grown organically and become cumbersome and difficult to maintain.
We worked with NWT staff to re-organise their website content and create a usable structure and navigation system for their new site, allowing for future growth and development. NWT have a massive amount to communicate about their work so it was important to make sure all of their information can be found easily.
We consulted with them on their branding guidelines and discussed a fresh new approach to their visual design and colour scheme. They also have a huge library of beautiful photographs of local wildlife which we incorporated into the layout and content.
NWT staff now manage their website pages without having to struggle with web design software or knowing any code. We spent a morning training them how to use the content management system – built using Expression Engine – and giving them guidance on how to write copy and prepare images for the web. We’re sure they’re going to do a brilliant job keeping the site up to date with news and information about NWTs many events and activities.
The website is also run by our wind powered Green Hosting
