The Trust asked me to develop a new website that would present their objectives clearly to a worldwide audience, and allow non-technical content editors to keep the site up-to-date with new content and imagery. I worked with the client to create a simple, clear design that showcases the many excellent images the Trust has taken of the preservation work it has done thus far.

The site is integrated with the ExpressionEngine content management system, allowing the Trust to edit and add new pages. It is fully responsive, adapting according to the device on which it is viewed. We used the classic Adobe Garamond Pro typeface to underline the Trust's focus on preservation work, and a simple red colour scheme to communicate an oriental ambience.
