Design/Writing | www.strathavengallery.co.uk
Lucy Dawson from Strathaven Gallery asked us to revamp the gallery's site to make it easier to use and add more information and features to it.
The gallery had been open for around eight months when we met Lucy and had already expanded significantly. The website had to reflect the range of things going on in what was an amazing space.
We came up with a bright and striking design for the site, which made it easy to feature the range of artists whose work was being exhibited there as well as providing information on the gallery's fantastic coffee shop, forthcoming events and how the space can be hired out.
Lucy also asked us to write the copy for the site, so we carried out research into the current crop of artists as well as writing up information about the gallery itself.
The site will also allow Lucy to organise events that can be booked online, with people reserving their places directly through the website.
How it works
The site is powered by our fuzzylime (cms+) software, which ensures it's as easy as possible to manage going forward. We built a custom events module on top of this system to meet Lucy's needs, and also included a great-looking events scroller on the home page that will list the next few events really prominently.
