Some Recent Work
Albany Summer School were keen to establish a new web presence to showcase their course offerings but also make it extremely user-friendly with an online booking solution that actually worked!
With 61 courses across 9 categories and spread over a 2 week period meant the website needed to display beautifully across all devices but most importantly be very simple to sort and navigate.
The Denmark Community Resource Centre is a dynamic community development agency who deliver a wide range of services and activities. Their old website was not mobile friendly nor did it capture the extent of what they offered.
Using high quality photos taken by a professional photographer (a great start) as well as engaging a local copywriting firm (highly recommended!), the Denmark CRC set themselves up for a great finished-product and this website was a joy to design.
It inclues a comprehensive and searchable/filterable community events calendar, online membership applications and payments as well as showcasing the breadth of ther services.
Next Rung Consulting reached out to the WA Forest Alliance to donate a website to promote their important work and activities. In a case of great timing, they had their website already planned and just needed a web designer to make it happen!
The new website (launched July 2020) represents phase 1 of their grand website vision and provides a lot of content packaged to be easily accessed, understood and shared.
Online donations have also been included as well as integrations with campaign builders and petitions.
We’re all looking forward to adding more content and an online store in the near future!
Emyjor Services are a Kalgoorlie-based firm providing plumbing, excavation, carpentry and controlled waste services to the mining, commercial and residential sectors.
Their old Wix site wasn’t doing them justice and they were looking for a new website that struck a balance between professional, modern and simple with a little bit of larrakin that supports their strong reputation in the Kalgoorlie-Boulder region. They were very pleased with the site look, feel and performance on desktop and mobile devices, especially Bruce the dog!
The Denmark Chamber of Commerce are the lead agent for business support, advocacy, promotion and networking in the Denmark region. With a diverse membership base of over 300 organisations, they needed to provide a highly flexible business directory that connected their members with site visitors; think ‘Google for Denmark’.
In addition, they wanted to allow streamlined online membership sign ups, a comprehensive business resources directory and fully connected with their social media.
Great Southern Learning Adventures (GSLA) represents a regional initiative to showcase and highlight the Great Southern region for school camps and excursions.
Predominantly used by educators when researching or planning a camp/excursion, the website was structured with this in mind allowing listings to be browsed via an interactive map and also by relevant category. Additionally, all listings were mapped against curriculum areas to assist educators in planning experiences suitable for their teaching program and year group.
The Valley of the Giants Heritage Tourism Association (VOGHTA) serves to promote local businesses and agencies in the region who offer accommodation, food and drink as well as fun activities for tourists to the area. Their previous website served them well for many years however the time came to update and upgrade their digital offering for the thousands of visitors who flock to this corner of WA.
Next Rung Consulting worked with VOGHTA to develop a directory-style website to showcase their members and allow visitors to easily locate them and understand their unique offering. An SSL (secure) site with interactive, filterable maps that also offer navigation was developed to showcase their 24 listings and encourage visitors to the area to experience the breadth and quality of what’s on offer.
Peaceful Bay Caravan Park is one of those gems on the South coast; a quiet town in a pristine location with camping and caravanning next to a protected beach. It’s the kind of place where great memories are made and, with word getting around, they needed to update their website to make it:
- Integrated with their third-party booking system
- Able to produce detailed online enquiries
- Multi-lingual (Simplified Chinese)
Project MonMa is an Australian not-for-profit whose mission is to travel the world researching and documenting cases of violence and discrimination against women and girls in an effort to raise awareness of their plight. Next Rung Consulting was proud to donate this website for the important work undertaken by Project MonMa, led by Dr Johanna Higgs and supported by a small yet dedicated team of researchers. The truly horrifying cases unearthed by Project MonMa highlights the importance of their work and the worthiness of this mission.
The website includes an interactive map linking to international projects, the repository of ‘The International Journal for Intersectional Feminist Studies’, online donations and a collection of published articles and interviews with Project MonMa from international media organisations.
