Bude Website Design for the Smugglers

After two amazing challenges which raised well over 30 thousand pounds – Three Peaks Row and The Smugglers’ Challenge have now returned to take on another challenge – The Smugglers’ Return.

Having been involved in the previous challenges with the branding and websites it was an obvious choice for them to approached me. The brief was to create an umbrella branding and a central website for all previous and upcoming challenges whilst giving them complete control of the content and pictures. And most importantly to me, I had complete freedom to design the website and how it interacts to users.

I created a new brand identity reflecting something completely different to what you would typically expect from a charity whilst making you curious about what the charity is about. The result was a silhouette of a character/pirate that jumps Cornwall out at you whilst also bringing the craziness of the charity. The website was built using WordPress and a custom-built theme that allowed me to make it unique to the Smugglers instead of using a theme which looks similar to everyone else.

I am pleased with the result, especially as I had given complete freedom to be creative with not only the logo but the website as well.

Testimonials

Dean recently created an excellent animated logo for my website, Bude & Beyond (www.budeandbeyond.co.uk). What I never realised at the outset was how much time, effort, discussion, creativity and dedication goes into producing a logo. After an initial discussion, Dean created many versions, in different colour schemes and formats, which he also animated. He sought appropriate feedback and went the extra mile to ensure that the colours and design were absolutely spot on. I was very impressed at his determination to get it right and to re-create and adapt until both he and I were both very happy with the final result.

So, I’d say Dean’s major strength is communication. I’m not IT-focused, but I appreciate a good-looking website/logo, so it really helps that he is able to discuss ideas in a friendly and accessible way, without over-use of jargon. He explains things well, and will interpret ideas in a client-focused way. He is extremely responsive, so wait times are very short. He listens to his client and creates ideas based on what he hears/understands. He checks all along the way (wording, colours, images, positioning) and will ask: what if we try this? He is also very open to constructive comments. Therefore, he provides plenty of guided choice.

I’m rather proud to now have a Dean Wronowski animated logo already in use on my social media and ready for my website (currently undergoing a major revamp). Dean’s designs are his trademark. Fresh, colourful and lively, they always try to encompass the nature of the product he is working with.

He is a remarkable talent which Bude is fortunate to have
