This week we launched a very exciting project for our beloved friends and longterm clients at Covenant House Vancouver. While there's no doubt that their new site is beautiful, the really exciting part for our team was that with this project we got to help Covenant House become a leader in providing a truly mobile responsive website to help serve their own clients, as well as for easy use by supporters and donors.
We had been monitoring Covenant House's stats, and knew that the trend toward increased use of the site on phones and tablets was reaching atipping point. With this redesign (our third for Covenant House over a long and happy working relationship) we wanted to make sure the experience for those users was as elegant as possible, while also helping to support Covenant House's very concrete goals around increasing support for the work that they do.
We love working with Covenant House because their very talented in-house team are clear on their priorities and fantastic at focusing their message. They tell their story from the heart and distill their stories into accessible pieces. For this project we had the pleasure of working with Jenn Christensen as the lead designer, a regular player on the Raised Eyebrow team, and Kim Lear, a very talented writer who also loves working with non-profits.
We're also so very fond of working with Covenant House BC because their mission is close to our heart, so here's a plug to support them by taking a few minutes out of your day to vote: Help Covenant House Vancouver Win $150,000 to feed 1500 homeless and at risk youth by voting for their idea in the Aviva contest.
If you're a non-profit organization looking to rethink your site from a mobile point of view, we'd love to talk to you.
