Web Design for Non Profits & 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?
