The Egerton Schools' Foundation

charity website

The Egerton Schools' Foundation were looking for some help getting online to promote and fundraise for the partnership between Egerton Primary School in Knutsford, UK and Egerton School in Njoro, Kenya.

We were happy to help develop the website, based on wordpress to enable simple editing and blogging. We also set up an account on Virgin Moneygiving for the foundation to enable a secure method of receiving donations.

Mobile First!

Website design in days gone by used to be all about making a site that looked good on a certain sized desktop/laptop display - fixed width, full of tables for layout etc (not to mention all the awful flash animations!).

Things have come on a long way and we now have much more sophisticated tools (HTML5, CSS3, Javascript) available in order to produce a flexible, mobile friendly website.

The method I like to use is what's known as 'Mobile First'. I start with the bare bones and design for a mobile device first, then scale up to the larger desktop & laptop screens, covering tablets and netbooks and everything inbetween.
