Project Details

What We Need
  • Feedback on the current website’s layout, user functionality, visual design, content, and other key features
  • Clear articulation of the Organization’s goals for the website
  • Recommendations for improvements to help achieve the Organization’s desired goals
  • Note: If you are looking for a more specific, in-depth audit of your website's design and usability, try our Website Usability Audit project
Additional Details

Our website is a few years old and could use some fresh eyes. We are a small nonprofit that acquires and maintains green spaces in our city. We are looking to improve our virtual presence and need some suggestions on our website.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a functioning wordpress website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have access to the backend of the website, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $6,772 , allowing us to continue our mission of enhancing the quality of life in our city through the preservation, transformation, and promotion of green spaces.

As the need for/appreciation of green space has grown through the COVID crisis, my board has recognized the need for us to have a strong virtual presence. Having fresh eyes on our website that can provide suggestions and feedback would be helpful in knowing where our weaknesses are and how we can improve.
