Doing amazing things in the North Pembrokeshire area, POINT is a popular youth centre based in Fishguard. Run by a dedicated team, the charity has many facets and uses funds to provide a safe, supportive space for local youths as well as create projects which bring the whole community together – from helping kids with their homework to helping the older generation get online.
As a youth organisation, having a fun, positive and, most importantly, mobile-friendly website was vital. It had to be easily accessible with clear information about the projects they run and the funding they’ve secured, as well as telling kids how they can come along to join in the fun. A really important aspect was having an area where children can find helpline information and find out how to access out of hours support.
The scope of high-quality professional images to transform the look and feel of a website was really evident in this project – not just in showcasing the project and people but in conveying the character, style and ambiance of the physical space.
We had fun with this one, delivering a fresh, fun and easy to use website that caters to both children and people who fund the organisation. We used a vibrant, attention-grabbing colour scheme to appeal to kids and convey the happy vibe that POINT is all about. The design incorporated multiple areas that target the audience in different ways, featuring current projects, updates and how they’re helping the community. As child safety is a prime concern for POINT, we also created a dedicated ‘out of hours’ section with a hide me tab.
As is sometimes the case, the domain name was with another developer who was a little tricky to track down. Although it took a more than a few phone calls and some diplomatic wrangling to transfer it over to us, we’re an intrepid bunch so we got it sorted. We love sharing a bit of knowledge here at Web Adept, so we had fun delivering a group training session with 10 lovely POINT employees.
A very friendly, efficient and professional company,Zoe Davies
