Improved visual design for local interest group

Arnside & Silverdale AONB is a local interest group which aims to protect and promote the local area of outstanding natural beauty. They asked us to take over their clunky website and make improvements to the visual design.


Working with this client was a real bonus as our studios happen to be on the coast-line of the AONB. We held an informal workshop to discover how we could put in place useful changes to the inherited site. Between us, we established that the website was confusing. We decided that we should create clearer signposts to the diverse content. Together, we decided to make improvements through a clearly defined structure. Then we were asked to provide visual proofs as a start point.

Visual design


The client gave us a series of branding guidelines to follow and we used these to aid the design. We developed a great communication throughout the project. This collaborative approach helped to maintain the established branding. We also improved the layout with a new icon set, improved navigation and a clearer, more consistent visual language.


Sadly, we had inherited a WordPress development which was poorly implemented and confusing to operate. Rather than try to edit it, we made a new interface and simplified the work flow.
