Project Details


Chain Icon

The Alec Dickson Trust is a charity setup to support volunteering and community projects for younger people looking to help others in society. Since 1994 the Alec Dickson Trust has helped support a number of projects and helped get people engaged with the community. However, as a voluntary run charity their web presence became an increasingly important avenue to engage with their volunteers.

The purpose of the new website was to serve two purposes: facilitate easier management of applications and general enquiries and to publish a list of key, often requested information. The trust had a small web presence so this was also an opportunity to refresh the design, extend the functionality and purpose of the website, and also create a new and rich experience for users accessing the website from their tablets and smart phone devices.

Using the trust’s existing a logo a new design was crafted with compliment the bold, typographic style. The colour palette was created from sampling the existing website and then expanding upon a few key colours with coordinated tones, hues and shades. With the style established this was translated into a bespoke a high-quality WordPress theme with bespoke functionality to administer the different aspects of the content management system.

Brand Guidelines

The Alec Dickson Trust had an existing logo and website, and whilst these were established entities, it was decided that the brand should evolve whilst subtly referencing some of its original characteristics.
