Website of the Week: National Homes Supported Living


This week's website of the week goes to National Homes Supported Living. The company was set up to support disadvantaged people who need a helping hand to get back on their feet.

Senior Project Manager Andy, began firstly by creating a full width panel layout website, using a striking colour which grabs the attention. In this case, a bright green. The contrast of the green panel with the darker looking image, makes sure that the website remains a professional looking site, dealing with a serious matter, but keeping the design slick and modern.

The website uses a Google font called Open Sans, a popular choice due to the fact that it's quite light. It's a clean looking font that can be used for corporate and non-corporate websites.

The main aim of the website is not only to be a reference point for people looking for more information, but to drive the business forward looking for volunteers, fund-raising and to promote donations.

The contact page features a form for people to get in touch with any queries or questions, making it easy and hassle free. The pages are easy to navigate and the site uses a simple page structure to follow.

When it comes to selecting imagery for a business that doesn't have any images of it's own, due to the sensitive nature of the topic or the people involved, stock imagery can be a great alternative. With a number of well selected stock images, it brings a visual aspect to the site, without bringing into question the identity or confidentiality of anyone involved with the business or topic matter.

The client was incredibly happy with the final result and said that they thought Toolkit Website's design & customer services were great. Read all of our reviews.
