‘We need to amalgamate our festival sites into one place whilst championing our new branding.’

Alongside building the academy trust website, topright built three individual sites to celebrate the trusts’ festivals and symposiums. These multi-sites are very different visually to the academy trust website. But they are quite clearly part of the Griffin Schools Trusts’ brand. The trust website design makes use of white space, bold statements and a more fluid grid layout.

Trust website design features

Topright included many interactive features to the trust website designs such as; latest social media feeds, animated banners, on page donation forms and more.

Throughout the trust website design there is bold movement and animation. This draws the user into the site. Each site has their own menu in the form of a hamburger menu. This makes sure that the user finds what they are looking for with little fuss. As with any modern, well thought-out website, there is more than one way to view information.

User experience

The site opens on the event title and some key quick links. These give the user quick navigation of the homepage. They link to snippets, overviews and introductions from where the user can ‘dive deeper’ if required. Below this is an introduction with a concise overview with a ‘read more’ link to an internal page.
