Strong Island Website Project
Working with local renowned Southsea brand Strong Island on their new web design was an exciting project for us. We have all followed the brand for a long time and love the community feel they bring to Southsea through their blog/magazine website, their Strong Island shop and their independent record label.
For this project we redesigned their blog/magazine website – where it all started for them in 2008. With such a strong following in the local community it was essential that the site be easy to use, in-line with their branding guidelines and mobile responsive – a key consideration as a high proportion of their visitors are accessing on mobiles and tablets.
The homepage was designed to really showcase their Strong Island brand, with their logo being the main focus, and a featured articles section to be used as a platform for their most recent and most popular posts. We made sure the website navigation was easy to use with all posts categorised into sections such as culture, news & events and lifestyle.
