Rosendale 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.
I 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.
