Activities and events
MWC's old website was looking a little bit dated: when viewd on a mobile phone screen its Old School "fixed width" (non-responsive) structure looked like a postage stamp - meaning visitors had to pinch and tweak to zoom-in and zoom-out to read the info on it = not ideal. Their clunky old CMS was a nightmare to use and the navigation system would often send people in completely the wrong direction!
MWC have 3 core strategic aims:
To develop a sense of ownership of MWC amongst local residents through creative engagement, e.g. events, outreach work, community led activities
To provide inspiration and support for local people who wish to develop new skills and new ways of enriching their lives
CONFIDENCE AND WELLBEING
To strengthen and support the physical and social resilience of residents
We really enjoyed working on the Meadow Well Connected project. They provide a fantastic service for the local community and we wanted to pack everything they do into the new website (without making it over-complicated) so visitors of any ability could easily find the information they need - regardless of the device they're using - and all within a couple of clicks
The charity's Chief Officer Mandi Cresswell said, “Because we do so much we need our website to be clear and easy to navigate for our wide range of stakeholders. Paul and I have worked together for a few months to really get our website right and he has been brilliant. This has been a very positive business relationship for us all.”
Kind words from our clients
We needed our website to be clear and easy to navigate for our wide range of stakeholders because we provide so many diferent services. Paul and I have worked on this web design project together to get it just right and he has been brilliant. This has been a very positive business relationship for us all.
Paul has been outstanding in his creativity and web design from conception to implementation of my new website. He is very understanding and patient, explanation and training on how to use, expand and maintain the site, and continues to provide invaluable suggestions and support.
