We’re very proud to have been able to help out the Fallow Deer Reserve with an updated website. The Reserve was founded in 2005 when over 100 deer were rescued from a farm that was closing down, and the website that existed prior to now was able to solicit funds but lacked most features we’ve come to expect in a modern site.
We moved the domain to a .org to better reflect the Reserve’s not-for-profit status and installed a customized version of WordPress to allow for easy updates. They’d previously set up a blog on Blogger to keep supporters in the loop; we imported this content to the new site to provide a single point of contact.
The home page uses CSS3 animations to achieve a “flipping through photos” effect that degrades nicely for browsers that can’t yet support this feature (currently best experienced on mobile or desktop Safari.)
Lastly, we created a series of screen-capture video tutorials to help guide the webmaster through various maintenance tasks on the site, making updates easier for current and future volunteers.
We can only guess at the actual cost of Thrust Labs’ contribution to develop this website. We are very, very grateful.
