Commonwealth War Graves Commission

Website Design

Commonwealth War Graves Commission

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is a unique, international, heritage organisation that combines commemoration, gardening and historical research.

To coincide with their centenary, the CWGC wanted to launch a new website. Their old website was old fashioned in its look and feel, clunky in terms of design and navigation and did not easily convey the role of the organisation.

CWGC’s brief was to create a new website that would be class-leading in the way it looks, feels and functions. They wanted the overall web design and layout to represent the rich artistic legacy and aesthetic standards of the CWGC. It had to look modern, stylish, vibrant and be easy to interpret.

It was also important for the design to convey that the CWGC is professional and caring, respectful but not sombre, traditional but not old-fashioned, an organisation that has a great past and a great future.

It was a pleasure to work with the UK’s leading UX consultancy, Bunnyfoot, on this exciting project!
