Carlow Credit Union

Project overview

Carlow District Credit Union is a co-operative based financial institution, owned by the 26,000 members who save and borrow with them. Established in 1963, it has grown from strength to strength over the years. It has two branches – its head office in Askea, Carlow town and its sub office in Ballon, Co. Carlow, with more to follow as the pace of amalgamation picks up.

They approached us in 2016 having seen the work we’d done for other credit unions around Ireland. We really hit it off at our very first meeting, and within a matter of weeks, we were busy designing their new website and writing their marketing plan. We continue to work with them on a day to day basis, updating their website, designing their newspaper ads, co-ordinating their direct mail etc. etc.

Key to this website is its logical flow and bright colours. All the information is in the right place at the right time. The home page has a slideshow of the key loan types, an overview of the key benefits, an interactive loan calculator, and most impressive of all, an aerial video of the local community. The overall effect is very warm and inviting.

Built in WordPress, the site is fully editable which means the client can update the text and images whenever the need arises. Content is critical – how it’s prepared and how it’s presented. We made sure to strike the right balance between visual appeal and technical structure. We made the website easy to find, easy to understand, and easy to manage.
