Hillcrest Website Revamped
Hillcrest seeks to provide a stable, secure and supportive environment, in which the people they care for can develop the skills and confidence necessary to help them fulfill their potential. They do this by providing services in the following areas: children’s homes and education, foster care and learning disabilities services.
A basic and rudimentary site had been in place for Hillcrest but as they grew the need for an up to date website was apparent.
The site itself is relatively complex given its size; the complexity comes from the need to represent the 3 services offered by Hillcrest. While a user navigates from one service to another the colour scheme needed to change to make it clear which service is being viewed.
To create an eye catching first impression we used Flash in the banner, which is different for each service. The colour scheme changes with minimal effect on loading speed and adds another dimension to its ease of use.
