We were recently commissioned to design a logo, branding and responsive multi-media website for the Heritage Lottery funded BHT Heritage project.BHT Heritage serves to provide research about the history of the grade two* listed building, recently renovated, which houses BHT’s First Base Day Centre. Built in 1777, the building has a fascinating and hidden history. A second strand researches the history of homelessness in Brighton and Hove.
This iconic building’s façade provided BHT Design with an easily recognisable motif on which to build a strong logo. Colours are based upon the building’s distinct red door and various teal tones used when renovating the interior.
With an audience ranging from local history groups through to schools and community groups, it was important to provide a site that was adaptable and user-friendly with a solid content management system on the back end. We’re particularly proud of the easily updated Oral History section, as well as the site’s responsiveness.
Responsive web design represents a fundamental shift in how websites will be designed and delivered in future. The number of devices, platforms, and browsers that need to work as a decent viewing experience increases daily. The BHT Heritage website scales beautifully viewed on a desktop, tablet or phone. As a client, with a small extra time investment it’s possible to significantly future-proof your web design commissions by requesting that your site be designed responsively.
