The Wrightsville Beach Museum of History is a free museum located in (you guessed it) Wrightsville Beach, NC. Their old site was dated and in need of a cleaner, more modern look. They also needed a way to be able to easily update it themselves in order to keep the community apprised of events at the museum, so the site was rebuilt in a content management system that several of the board members were experienced with.
A good bit of thought went into the header area. The logo we were given to use with the site was from their letterhead, and while it was a fine design, it was just a little too simple and stark in such a clean design. We tried a few things, including using the museum’s sign (which can be seen in the bottom right of the homepage), but nothing seemed to fit, so we went ahead and created a new logo.
