Dronfield Civic Society approached me with the brief of wanting a site that was easier to update and maintain, and was easier to use on mobile devices. Previously, their site had been designed through Adobe Dreamweaver, meaning their content wasn't responsive when viewed on mobile phones and tablets. Given that an increasing proportion of the public are now using mobile devices to access the internet rather than on traditional desktop computers or laptops, this was seen as a crucial part of the redesign for the client. A revised colour scheme, plus an emphasis on easy navigation and large images with parallax and Ken Burns effects were also key parts of the design. The site was launched at the end of 2018 to co-inside with the society's 30th anniversary.
From the client:
"James Singleton, of JHS Web Design, has recently worked with the Committee of the Dronfield Civic Society to update and modernise the Society’s website. James interpreted our brief faithfully and also brought his own innovative ideas about how to improve the way the Society interacts with its stakeholders. The new website was delivered on time.The new site is very user friendly and is equally impressive on desk top computers, tablets and smart phones. The site can be viewed at www.dronfieldcivicsociety.org.uk. We have no hesitation in recommending James as a reliable, imaginative, web designer.”
