Case Study

The Joanna Simpson Foundation

The Joanna Simpson Foundation charity website designed to help drive some much-needed donations for a great cause.

What we did

               

Bespoke charity website design & build

We were humbled to be asked to build the new website for The Joanna Simpson Foundation. Showcasing the great work they do in support of children affected by domestic abuse and homicide.

This is a great charity. And like many other similar organisations, they are finding it quite challenging to raise awareness and funds in a post-Covid-19 world.

THE
CHALLENGE

The original website was built using Weebly. An off-the-shelf platform that lacks design flair and the right tools to help charities succeed during tough times.

Our challenge was to help JSF maximise their limited budget by focussing on key content and the actions they needed their visitors to take.

 

THE
RESULT

The original website had slightly confusing navigation, with link titles that did not translate to the content on the destination page. This had to be remedied as a matter of priority to improve the UX.

The new navigation is fixed to the top of the screen. This allows for easy access to key pages and the ever-important donations button.

We alternated blocks of white and green (the brand colour) with full-width images to deliver a high level of visual impact. This approach helps the eye scan through the blocks of information and understand the structure of the page.

Finally, we incorporated a social feed that pulls posts from both Twitter and Facebook.

The client now has full control over their website. Managing blog posts and event listings with powerful SEO assistance via the Yoast plugin.

If you help run a charity and are looking for assistance with your website, why not drop us a line? We’ll be more than happy to discuss your needs and help you towards a better future.
