Caistor Arts & Heritage Centre | New Website Build

Website Design

The Challenge

 

We have worked with Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre for a number of years to support their marketing and communications, and this close relationship was strengthened in 2019 when they asked us to re-design and develop their website.

Website Design

Our Approach

We wanted to create a less cluttered, more easily navigable site, with e-commerce functionality, and picked our platform accordingly. 

Although we were asked to keep the original range of pages, we decided to remove the drop-downs. We didn’t need to conserve space, and felt they created too much work for users. 

Once the framework was complete, we began populating the site manually, giving maximum consideration to SEO. 

We visited the centre several times whilst the work was being carried out to make sure they were happy with the progress, and to show them how to add content themselves. The CAHC team will now be able to update menu, workshop, and shop information in the future.

Caistor Arts & Heritage Centre

The Client

Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre is housed in a historically significant building, and is a socially important community hub. It is home to Caistor library, a cafe, a gallery where local artists exhibit work, a fascinating display of the town’s heritage, as well as meeting rooms where local groups of all kinds meet and hold workshops. 

Knapton Wright has generated content for their Facebook page and sent monthly e-shots to their supporters on their behalf for 5 years, and will continue to do so.

The Results

The new website is easy to read, navigate and understand. It’s visually appealing, yet with all the valuable content and familiar features its users have come to rely upon. 

The e-commerce functionality allows visitors to support the centre without having to step inside, which is vital for an organisation like this one in the current climate.
