Windsor Platinum Jubilee – WordPress Design & Build

The Brief

The Windsor Platinum Jubilee Committee needed a website to showcase events happening in Windsor to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

The Windsor Platinum Jubilee Committee was formed by residents of Windsor, to promote the events, news and special occasions surrounding the Queen’s Jubilee.

The Result

We designed and built a fantastic WordPress website, pulling inspiration from around the design from their official Windsor Platinum Jubilee Logo.

The design is simple, but effective. With modern, on brand typography and big bands of colour to segregate sections. The website is also underpinned by large alluring photos of Windsor and previous celebrations. The content is laid out in a way to maximise visitors heading to the events section.

Based on WordPress, the website displays a wealth of information regarding the events, celebration, jubilee and why it is important. The website has an events system where local organisers can submit their events, details and images easily. This ensures that the website can be a global portal to everything happening.

The team can easily add and change content, as well as events and news. We provided extensive tuition and videos for the team to share so multiple people can add posts when they need to.

We put extensive effort into ensuring site speed was blazing fast, with good coding practices, heavy caching systems, including Cloudflare integration to ensure that the site the website loads quickly wherever you are in the world.

We also host the website on our servers, ensuring we can optimise performance, even under sustained heavy traffic (which this site gets). For more information on our hosting services see here.

The Response

The team at Windsor Platinum Jubilee are ecstatic with the website, and has given their efforts real excitement and drive.

The website is performing extremely well, clocking many thousands of visits per week. The website has been shown in a BBC news feature regarding the celebrations too!

Absolutely excellent service provided by Woodbridge Web under the highly professional and talented direction of Dan Williams. The entire process of building a site from scratch for the Windsor Platinum Jubilee celebrations to mark the Queen’s momentous 70 years of reign, has been made so easy and enjoyable thanks to Dan’s exceptional design flare and website knowledge, patience, as well as helping us to make good decisions along the way. Leading up to the site going live we were provided with online training to enable us to update elements of the site ourselves going forward, but with Dan still on hand for advice and any further development.

We can’t praise him highly enough and have no hesitation in recommending Woodbridge Web, thank you Dan it is a pleasure working with you.
