web design: art workshops for young people

from skaped:

“Just been to the social founders’ event today that has 40 other organisation founders, and we got a massive compliment on our website from the organiser; she said our website was the best, easy and fun.

We’re very happy with the design and how fresh the site feels. Great attention to detail and a very easy-to-use mobile layout!” – Sandy, Skaped CEO

The Need

The old site was looking subdued and plain. Skaped required a site more visually appealing to their main target audiences – young people and school children aged 11-25, that is easy to navigate and shift their programme emphasis from human rights to self-care.

Web Design

The website needed aligning with the visual style of their social media content. Graphic elements and monotone images provided by Skaped combined with my custom collage, ripped paper and paint stroke assets inspired the amazing outcome. Alongside custom CSS, I optimised mobile and tablet layouts and implemented basic on-page SEO best-practices.
