Saving Lives at Sea.


Porthcawl Lifeboats, a section of the registered charity RNLI, specialises in coastal rescues at Porthcawl, on the south coast of Wales. With 36 volunteers, the members of Porthcawl Lifeboats live in Porthcawl and regularly respond to callouts where victims may have been caught off guard by the seas bipolar temperament. 

The Brief

Porthcawl Lifeboats came to us with a simple request. An informative site making it clear the dangers of the water and what RNLI does as a charity.

The Development

Firstly, we got together over a cuppa and discussed exactly what this website needs. We talked about colours, illustrations, and everything else that would make this website clear in its aims, user friendly and attractive to the eye. 

Infographic designs got underway swiftly, so that plenty of information could be presented clearly. 

The Result

Porthcawl Pier is one of very high risk of drowning during stormy or unpredictable weather. Consequently, we decided to place a Live Streaming feature on to the new site. This page includes all the information a user would need regarding wind speeds and directions, rainfall, temperature, tides and more.
