Web Design for Nonprofits & Social Enterprises

All our designs start with strategy. We walk you through a detailed, collaborative discovery process so we clearly understand the needs, objectives and goals. Then we design – backwards. We focus on the user and the desired action (learn, join, donate) and work backwards to the homepage and key messages. Once we’ve determined the viewers actions we can tell your story, create engaging experiences and provide the tools to easily manage your site and enable your viewers to become more involved with what you offer.

We handcraft websites that are intuitive and inspirational, responsive for tablets and mobile phones, AODA accessible, optimized for search engines and oh-so-easy to update.

What can we create for you?

A National Voice for Birds

National Environmental Website

Birds Canada’s mission is to conserve wild birds through sound science, on-the-ground actions, public engagement, and science-based advocacy.
Their old website had been live for a number of years and continued to grow and grow. It was time to take a much needed step back and refocus on their message and what and how they communicated to their supporters. A new name and fresh rebranding kicked off the website redesign direction. All content was reviewed, tuned and reorganized to make things easier to find and to create more compelling calls to action. Donation systems were updated and integrated into the site. New features and national maps of programs were added.
The new website captures what Birds Canada is all about in a more engaging and user friendly way. View the site at birdscanada.org
