March worked with inspirational charity The Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation to create a new website and stationery to drive brand awareness and donations.
The Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation offers after school courses in the arts from oil painting to film making, and from sculpture to photography. The courses are funded by the Foundation and taught by their team of teachers and arts professionals. Ambassadors of the Foundation include celebrities from the world of arts and entertainment, chief among them being their patron Helen McCrory.
Having been approached by founder Mark von Herkomer, we were commissioned to create a new website that would successfully present the courses and events run by the charity whilst simultaneously providing a platform that would enable them to consolidate donations.
We created a clean, bright and contemporary stationery set which included business cards, letterheads and compliment slips.
Business cards were scoped on the clients behalf and printed on luxury 600gsm fine mohawk paper.
After experiencing usability issues with their website by a previous agency, it was imperative that we delivered an online solution that would look slick, be easy to use and work across all devices. Critical to the success of the project would be the ability for users to make charitable donations to the Foundation quickly and efficiently.
We adopted Wordpress as our CMS and began rapid prototyping the site. This allowed the client to quickly see how the pages would format and link together without the distraction of veneer.
Once the structure was approved we used the charity's branding as the starting point for our designs. The palette would be stark black and whites, interspersed with beautiful photography and large format typography. Being a visually based charity we were fortunate to have such a comprehensive library of strong images to work with.
The new website was launched in a timely fashion and the integration with JustGiving allowed The Sir Hubert Von Herkomer Art Foundation to take charitable donations more easily than ever before via SMS and online.
The site and stationery were very well received by the board of trustees and provided them a stunning platform to pitch their vision.
March Branding created an engaging, effortlessly navigable, and aesthetically exquisite website for our charity. Their speed and professionalism was first class and I would thoroughly recommend their services.Mark Von Herkomer
