New Website For The Lost Words Dorset
We've been enthusiastic supporters of #TheLostWords project to present all Dorset primary and first schools with copies of The Lost Words, and now we have built a completely new website for the project.
Published on: 17th April 2009
Today sees the launch of a new website for award-winning botanical artist, Meriel Thurstan. Meriel's work has been inspired by the Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project, where she was a pivotal member of the Friends of Eden team.
She teaches on several botanical art courses and has published several books which have been highly commended.
Creating a new site for Meriel was a joy and also full of trepidation. Working with someone with an obvious design flair herself we were keen to make the right impression in the design we presented. The process has taken a couple of months to complete but both we and Meriel are delighted with the results.
The site's former incarnation worked functionally, but didn't really show off the fabulous quality of Meriel's paintings. Our new design sprang directly out from the paintings themselves. The colour schemes were lifted straight from the nature's own palette. The resulting design is light, crisp and delicate and sets off the images that Meriel has chosen for inclusion in the site.
We have again created a AAA WCAG accessible site and registered the site with Google Analytics and SiteMaps to speed up the site's re-indexing.
We're delighted to introduce our two new team members who are joining Alacrify this month. Lesley Smith is Alacrify's new Personal Assistant, and Lynne Pattison joins as a Project Assistant.
Green Union has been a client of Alacrify for many years now and this website was a kind of third generation build. We built the original website a few years back and it’s had some updates made to it over the years but this time the new owner wanted to put her own stamp on things and create something fresh and new.
