Custom Website Design


START in Salford

It has been our pleasure to work with START for more than 10 years on a variety of projects. Therefore, we were delighted to be commissioned for their latest website redesign. This was following the success of the previous site we created for them back in 2013. Building on a highly rewarding partnership with the charity.

 START is a Salford based mental health charity that uses creativity, connection and recovery interventions to help improve people’s lives. They are passionate about providing the very best support for the people in our community. Therefore we wanted to ensure this came through in the new website design proposal.

Exceeding the Brief

The community is central to the charity’s work, so the new custom website design made people the focus. We featured large images of START’s members, happy, smiling and engaged in create activities. This creates a really positive and personal feel to the site, clearly demonstrating the fantastic impact the charity has on real people’s lives.

The new site has been carefully considered throughout. The site map has been streamlined to provide a clear and concise message about the purpose and aims of the charity. Resulting in a smaller but perfectly formed new site. Each page on the site has been tailored specifically to the content and messages which START wanted to include. There are no ‘design templates’ here!

START’s goals and expectations for the new custom website design were met and exceeded. Resulting in the stunning and modern web presence shown here. Needless to say the client is thrilled with the results, take a look at what they had to say about the project:

“Once again Hive have exceeded all our expectations and created a fantastic new website which allows us to showcase the best of our work. From start to finish the service we have received has been exemplary and we cannot recommend them enough.”

Further bespoke features

In addition, the new site features a universal online referral form central to improving the charities referral process. Furthermore, the new site features a virtual gallery, enabling a huge range of the artworks created at START to be exhibited in a fun, engaging way.

Effortless updates

Included in the website redesign is the implementation of our all-new hiveCMS 2.0. As a result, keeping the website content up to date has never been easier. The streamlined design of our content management system cuts down on administration time. This means creating and updating website content is quick and easy to do.
