Rosendale Allotments

Rosendale Allotments Association logotypeRosendale Allotments Association (RAA) wanted a new front sign, giving them a professional visual identity for the first time, I designed them a logotype with a sprouting leaf symbol.

Along with this they needed some clear new safety information notices to inform plot holders of ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ on their land.

Rosendale Allotments signsI based graphics for these notices on standard European road signs – with a few new variations of my own design for situations which are not normally encountered on the highway.

My next assignment was to design and produce a new Rosendale Allotments Association website in tune with the natural world. I gave it a natural overall look; quotations in the headings and muted background colours change each three months so that the website has a different look for each season.

Simple navigation starts with an overview of the Association and explains how it came to be. There are seperate sections for News posts; the RAA committee and management have a page which includes a ‘who’s who’ and explains how the Association functions; and there is a seperate page for the Association’s rules and regulations (explained in full on a linked pdf). The website is completed with a gallery to showcase photographs taken by plot holders and a contact form. A recent addition has been a new page with tab: ‘Hire our building‘ created to increase bookings for the RAA Community Building. I made a series of widgets linked to it, slides show regular classes and room uses, I have placed them around the site.

From the start I designed this as a ‘responsive’ website using my own customised version of a WordPress templates engineered for this purpose. Each web page layout changes and adapts so that it can be viewed well on a PC, laptops of different screen sizes, iPads, tablets and smart phones.

I continue to host, maintain and update the site for RAA.
