The Northumberland County Blind Association is a local charity that supports blind and partially sighted people in Northumberland. They got in touch with Glow with the aim of developing a fresh new website to replace their old one, which was looking dated and didn’t carry all the functionality they required. They needed a site that was accessible to as many of their users as possible and one that looked clean, bright and modern.
As a charity supporting partially-sighted people, the new website would need the added functionality of being able to be viewed in a range of formats and in a range of colour settings. We built in a dual-level text magnifier and four colour option buttons to the basic design of the site. This would ensure it was accessible to as many visitors as possible.
Once the basic design and layout of the pages was established, we created the responsive website. This meant the NCBA site could be viewed equally well on mobile, tablet and desktop screens. With around a third of internet browsing now carried out on smartphones, responsive design is really the only option to ensure websites are user-friendly and fit for purpose.
We created the responsive site using Glow’s own bespoke CMS template. The CMS is easily customised and is very straightforward to use, so when control of the site was handed over to NCBA, both the client and ourselves could be happy that the site would be in good hands. And, of course, all of our websites come with a comprehensive CMS user guide as standard.
Leaflets - promotional leaflets to raise the profile of the NCBA brand and services offering, designed to match the new website for online/offline consistency
Pop Up Banners - designed to match all other items
Presentation Folders & Matching Stationery - cards etc, all to reflect clean new identity.
“It has been a delight to work with the Glow Creative team. They not only created a fantastic website for us but also designed some great looking promotional material for our organisation. They are friendly, efficient and professional. I have no hesitation in recommending Glow Creative.”
