Client: Griffin Schools Trust
‘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.
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.
The homepage includes links to videos. Showcases specific tailored inspirational quotes. The trust website design also features an animated scrolling banner with the message reading ‘You can make the difference’. This follows after the donation call to action for the trust. This links to more information and a donation form. Furthermore there is a Social media feed with the three latest images uploaded from the events Instagram account.
The trust website design is packed full of imagery and animation. This represents the excitement and engagement of the annual events.
Biryani was chosen for its versatility, suitability and communication qualities. This Google font is used as HTML and embedded in the site. Biryani compliments the logos and further showcases the brand.
The colours chosen for each trust website design have been carefullyconsidered. They reflect the colours within each of the logos. This keeps the design cohesive to the Trust’s brand. It also separates and identifies each of the three festival sites.
