Highlighting the World War One Centenary
The Church of England asked us to design a new microsite for the World War One Centenary – to be integrated within their existing web design for www.churchofengland.org. The challenge we faced was to find a way to include a number of different objectives into what is already an existing and established web design. The primary concern was to provide up-to-date communication on how the Church of England is involved in the commemoration, but also provide online resources for clergy, community groups and general visitors. Furthermore a distinctive look and feel was needed to duly support the ethos of the World War One Centenary.
Focus on content with a microsite
By working closely with The Church of England communications team we discovered more about the requirements and decided to take a very different approach; a microsite dedicated to the World War One Centenary content. This gave us the freedom to create a unique and emotive design but still connect a clear identity with the main site as well as bringing a number of other benefits along too;
- Allowing users too easily find information they are looking for by providing a clear path to content solely related to the World War One Centenary
- Not being distracted by the rest of the web site
- And being a microsite, it’s an audience grabber and effective way to encourage and hold visitors
A microsite that we’re proud of
We are very thankful to The Church of England in allowing us an opportunity to play a part in this global commemoration in helping communities come together to remember the First World War.
