The Windmills Foundation aims to inspire a future generation of young people to maximise their skills, talents and passions to make their unique difference in the world around them. We worked with Windmills to create a new website to showcase its extensive library of resources; alongside an animation and interactive tool.
At the heart of the brief was a focus on the user journey to enable easy navigation of the wide range of programmes that Windmills has developed and make the tools and resources easily available.
Inspiring a generation
Working with the existing Windmills Foundation identity, we initially created a visual concept for the site which was fresh and clean, whilst also aligning with wider communications and collateral that Windmills had produced.
This was then taken into development using WordPress in which we developed a three tier menu to enable easy navigation of the wide range of resources in a sustainable manner. Take a look at the site.
Alongside the website we also developed an interactive tool, using React, to enable users to discover the skills they love using and are really good at – try out the tool here.
Finally, we also developed a character-led animation to provide an introduction to the Windmills Foundation, its ethos and vision. This is carried on the website to provide a prominent explanation of the organisation – take a look at the animation on this page below.
Why it matters
Windmills Foundation has a vision to creatively collaborate with like-minded partners on exciting projects that inspire and empower young people to live their best lives and make their unique difference in the world. They take a whole life, whole person, whole organisation, whole community approach.
Empowering young people to be in control of their choices and their future is so important, and the role that Windmills Foundation plays in enabling this is fantastic.
