Open Circle’s current website is a repository of information but with the amount of info available, clients sometimes have trouble accessing the information they need. Nova wants the new site to have improved flow and access to information but doesn’t have the expertise to implement a plan like this.
“I felt that this project allowed me to give back in the best possible way because I deal with this day in and day out. Another reason I chose this project is because I’m actually looking to expand my portfolio in terms of website redesign, it would help me in terms of career progression.”
A comprehensive document outlining the project’s process, final site map, wireframes, and useful resources for the web developer to implement the plan.
“The project was really wonderful! Banu was very knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. She gave us plenty of examples and taught us new ways to understand website design and UI flow.”
The redesigned UI will allow Open Circle’s website to serve as a key online marketing tool. Refreshing the site’s content and flow ensures they are better serving the needs of their community and any new visitors.
“The UI will enable us to have much stronger and more compelling messaging for our key audiences so they can get excited and want to learn more. The content that they might be looking for will be easier to find ( whether they want to register online or answer a question) it is really readily available to our main target audience as well as anyone who visits the site.”
“I’ve actually been able to expand my portfolio with this project. I grew as a person and I learned new skills in terms of how do you connect with your client when you don’t have physical interaction taking place. I had great clients to work with, they were really eager to work on this, always available, and they weren’t afraid to voice their opinion."
"It was great working with Catchafire, Vibha was very helpful. She was always there and made sure we felt comfortable in the beginning and so on. I think the way Catchafire is setting up these projects is really great, they’ve really thought it through. I’m actually on another project now! I wanted to extend my experience to the other charities that work with Catchafire.”
Banu’s 40 hr project resulted in $7K saved for Open Circle.
