Richmond Furniture Scheme
Richmond Furniture Scheme is a local charity. They have been serving the community for many years, picking up, renovating, re-selling and delivering cheap yet quality second hand furniture to homeowners in need.
Their previous website was very basic in style and functionality and was in need of an update. We helped by designing a more contemporary and mobile friendly site for the charity. We simplified the homepage and made important information such as the location and telephone number extremely prominent, displayed in large, bold font against a map background.
We also modernised the logo slightly to bring it in line with the update of the website and used flashes of the green branding in elements of the design such as the navigation, arrow bullet points and backgrounds for secondary page headers.
It was also important for Richmond Furniture Scheme to keep the blog element of the website in the form of a ‘News’ section to keep visitors informed of the very latest on their work within the community and to appeal for volunteers to help out with this worthwhile cause. The new blog layout was designed to be more engaging with the addition of the front page to show more than one of the latest news items with an image and a short blurb.
