Paul Collingwood Testimonial Website
"Colly" to his peers, Paul Collingwood presented Beatnik with his with his personal identity which was a starting point for the website's design. To tie in with this, inspiration was taken from museum and exhibition information boards leading to a clean design with a lot of white space. After all, this website is a celebration of one of England's greatest ever cricket players.
It was important not to forget that this was a testimonial project and donations to Paul's chosen charities were key to this website's success.
Breaking the Grid
We took a responsive approach to the web page creation that makes use of flexible layouts, flexible images and cascading style sheet media queries. We crafted Paul’s website so that the layout changes based on the size and capabilities of the device without compromising the design integrity.
Typography & Colours
As a rule, all situations can be handled with three good compatible choices. In this case, we need a legible family for body copy, a bold sans-serif family for headings and Serif or other display face for variety and special uses.
