Falkland Centre for Stewardship relaunch

Falkland Centre for Stewardship websiteFive years after we designed their original website staff at the Centre for Stewardship at Falkland invited Red E to design a fresh, new site able to be maintained by Centre staff cheaply and easily and designed to comply with the latest standards for mobile compatibility.

 

The new site launched on 16 July 2015. We think it is great example of how to deliver a cheap, effective design that’s fully responsive and easily maintained. It was actually cheaper than the first site.

There’s an interesting Open Country feature on the work of the Centre for Stewardship.

Red E has visited this beautiful estate, the converted stables, the Pillars of Hercules café and the village of Falkland many times. We’ve bought organic food, enjoyed the Big Tent Festival and walked the grounds.

Different members of staff look after different parts of the site. Red E replaced the well used but dated Contribute system on the centre’s own server with a new WordPress based CMS and delivered onsite training to staff.

The new website is optimised for mobile devices which is an advantage for visitors to the estate. The new system moves most SEO tasks in-house to save money and improve Google rankings.

The redevelopment cost less than the original site and dispensed with the need for costly CMS software.
