Fluxus Art Projects

Development & design of a bilingual charity website handling grant applications

Fluxus Art Projects is a Franco-British charity encouraging cross-channel exchanges in visual arts.
The organisation already had a website but it needed a redesign to remove accessibility issues and obtain a straightforward, easy-to-update tool.

Design

A simple design was requested, using three colors (black, white & green), no image, and giving its rightufl place to a prominent text.
The thumbnails of the list of projects were stylised by reproducing the particular shape of the logo, at the heart of Fluxus visual identity.

Development

The website was developed using WordPress. Some of the required features were: bilingual pages, latest news displayed on the home page (with an expiry date to avoid ‘ancient news’), application forms for grant candidates (and an admin panel to handle them), a showcase of supported projects and the ability for the client to update the website through an easy-to-use admin panel.
The developed website is responsive – it has been developed to look good on any screen size. jQuery was banned in order to reach a faster loading time – the few scripts on the website use vanilla JavaScript.

Fixed anchors bar

The client planned on putting quite a lot of text on each webpage: we came up with a solution using a top-fixed bar holding anchors to the relevant sections of the page. Therefore, when scrolling down a long page, the user can quickly reach its destination.
The anchors and anchor bar are automatically generated using the main titles of the client text, making the process of updating the website easy for the client.
