The National Garden Scheme has operated since early 1900s providing funding and support for Nursing and Healthcare charities. As part of their re-brand, carried out by west-London agency BigFish, they needed a new website.
I worked closely with BigFish’s designers and developers to build the Front End of the site. The site was built on Wordpress with a theme built from scratch. Woo-Commerce and a custom API for querying a database of gardens were used. The site also has a members area for volunteers and an events section. More than 40 page/post templates were created, along with several custom post types for a variety of content.
Despite these challenges the site was delivered on time within a total of 9 weeks and with a very satisfied client. The search functions very well, with only a few API and UI tweaks needed as the site matures.
