Freestone’s graphic design and web design skills have benefited many small and charitable organisations over the years and we do like to help out in our community wherever we can. So when we were contacted by the Lead of Project Based Learning (PBL) at Bridge Academy South (BAS) to assist in their latest web based project we were more than happy to lend them our expertise.
Our role involved mentoring a group of students tasked with creating a web site designed to raise funds for the WWF. The project entitled Endangered Species was created by the school to increase awareness of the plight of animals across the planet. From lions and giraffes to bees Continue reading →
