Birchwood Town Council approached us to ask if we would redevelop their existing website which was looking rather dated and did not display content very well on mobile devices.

This case study outlines our approach to creating a website design to meet the council's needs.

These needs included compliance with Level AA of the WCAG 2.1 Accessibility Guidelines, a legal requirement for public sector organisations in the UK and EU.

Our Approach

When the council asked us to create a responsive (see note) website design we first of all installed the latest available release of Joomla! CMS on a server with restricted access (limited to the council and ourselves) to facilitate collaboration during the website design process.

We then customised the Joomla! CMS website's Content (categories, articles and modules) and Navigation Structure (menus and menu links) to meet the council's needs.

Finally, we created a custom WYNCHCO template design, incorporating the design elements described in this case study, to project the council's website and brand across the widest possible range of devices (phones, tablets and PCs) and screen sizes.

Our aim: to create a RESPONSIVE accessible website design.

Some choices made by Birchwood Town Council

Optional Extras

The Joomla! CMS is available 'off the shelf' from The Joomla! Project, and when correctly installed, works 'out of the box'.

WYNCHCO website designs are not supplied 'off the shelf'.

Each one is created in response to the specific needs of the customer.

The council requested we include the following additional features when we created their website design.
