Elk Creative was entrusted with developing a high ranking, mobile friendly, responsive website for the South Australian Whale Centre for not only the public but staff, volunteers and dedicated whale watchers. Its aim was to be vibrant and fun with bold colour and splashes of detail ensuring the personality of the team was on the show. The WordPress website was developed with custom features allowing for various types of content to be highlighted. We provided training to the SA Whale centre via custom-made video tutorials. After the success of the website, we have created a new direction for the printed material starting with brochures and flyers that mimic the design tone of the custom website design.
