Foreign Desk Ltd website design & build

Foreign Desk Ltd home page design

Foreign Desk Ltd is a company started by four prominent UK journalists who, having worked globally, recognised a need to improve journalistic practices and the functioning of the free press in many places across the world. They teach best practice to foreign journalists in the areas of storytelling, professionalism and the use of 21st century media.

Foreign Desk Ltd approached The Space Room to build them a website that clearly and succinctly explains who they are and what they offer in a professional and engaging way.

It was decided that, due to a limited requirement for content, particularly at first, a one page format was the best design option, with the page being divided into distinct sections. The general aesthetic was to be clear and understated, with a limited colour palette, used in different combinations to differentiate sections. Custom, iconography was used to illustrate the offer.
