"Our website designer Crocodile Communications is incredibly helpful whenever we get stuck with using it (which is very rare!)"
Website Designer Stirling
For fvl.org.uk we decided to go for a bright, bold and colourful design basis. We felt this would be appealing and easy to digest for the attended audience of the site and allow the needed information to be efficiently conveyed. To achieve these design effects we went for thick gutters, bold and uppercase text, big and noticeable buttons and plenty of spacing around text. For colours we mixed Persian Green with a seaBuckthorn to create a website that followed the logo design. The site is full accessible and conforms to WIA 2.1 specifications scoring AAA across the site.
