Creating impact with a website’s redesign for an arts charity

Creating impact with a WordPress website redesign for Eastside Educational Trust, an arts and educational charity in London

The Brief

Eastside Educational Trust, a non-profit organisation established in 1994 exists to inspire young people through participation in arts programmes that develop their skills and creative thinking. We were tasked with the development of an impactful and fresh redesign, designed by the brilliant Alice Vulliamy, to make the site more vibrant and engaging for teachers and parents.

We aimed to create a website that was impactful by showcasing the brilliant programmes, workshops and events that Eastside organise while ensuring that the website was easy to navigate and use. In addition, we also would look at incorporating a donation feature directly into the website to boost the organisation’s support network.

Here are some of the goals that we had for the website redesign project:

Project Details

To produce an impactful and modern design

We main goal was to develop the impactful and modern design and vitalise Eastside’s website.

To make the website easy to use

We ensured that the website was easy to use across all devices.

To showcase the charity's work

We focussed on showcasing the range of brilliant work that Eastside does throughout the project.

To make the website easy to manage

Through WordPress, we also looked at making the website easy to manage moving forward.

The Solution

As per the design produced by Alice, we began to develop the fresh and modern design into Eastside’s website, developing this on a staging platform so that the live site would not be affected, something that we do for all of our clients.

After working on the base design for the new website, we began to work on developing the donation system for the website which was done with ease and we also customised this to improve user experience while using this crucial area of the website.

As a result, the website now features a stylish and engaging layout which is easy to navigate, keeping website visitors engaged and wanting to know more about what is on offer at Eastside.

Comparing old to new

What we say

After rounds of revisions and testing, the staging website was moved to the live website without any downtime. The website launch was met with great reception and we have been told that it is so much easier to use and navigate since going live with the new site. We’re delighted to have been able to produce a new and improved digital presence for Eastside which their audience and staff can benefit from.
