5 September 2012Website Development
From initial concepts supplied by UTS design students to the Balmain Association, Red Ant Media set about a redesign of their web site, which we then developed in WordPress so as committee members and other volunteers can easily add new content, make changes and upload files.
Specific elements of the brief from the Balmain Association were that the site was to be have a clean and simple design, that be easy to read and navigate.
With our original design for their website getting on to being almost 5 years old, Lushous Strings asked us to redesign their site, and as part of the process create a brand new look for them.
The brief called for a more formal look to be integrated with elements from our previous designs for them, as well as a change in colour palette to reflect this new positioning. For comparison to the new design, examples of our previous work for Lushous Strings can be seen on our site here (old logo) and here (their old website).
With the group requiring constant updates to their site, including events, new recordings, tesimonials and appearances, we developed the site in WordPress for them, including a pricing table structure and an embedded MP3 player for visitors to be able to listen to their recordings.
In keeping with the playful, musical nature of Lushous Strings we have designed a website that showcases their talent and provides the necessary information for people looking to hire them for their events and functions.
Commissioned by the Glebe Chamber of Commerce, our design for the 2012 Glebe Street Fair website uses parts of the existing Glebe branding as well as new imagery we developed to build a design that tied in with the “flair of the fair”.
With bold text, and a cheerful colour palate and simple navigation, the site includes embedded Facebook and Twitter feeds to further enhance user experience, and keep content fresh and relevant.
The website has been designed to act as both an information portal for the public and as gateway for potential stall holders to view information relevant information relating to the fair. It includes an online merchant facility to book and purchase stalls.

A brand is an essential part of your business. Branding makes your business stand out from other competitors, as well as validating your company. We’ve found a series of corporate rebrands which we think are pretty interesting.

Around 20% of Adult Australians, or one in five people, will experience a mental illness at some stage in their lives. The subject of mental disorders is no laughing matter, and the idea of communicating this message to a large spectrum is challenging. We were completely blown away when we came across these minimal poster designs by Patrick Smith. Patrick set himself the challenge of defining each disorder in a minimal way which proved to cause a lot of controversy.
