Just Launched Charitable Giving Campaign: NonstopAdvocates.com

// reblogged from ran.ge

We're so thrilled to announce this years launch of NonstopAdvocates.com! We designed and developed the site working with Christian & Small's Julie Ellis. Throughout the years, Christian & Small Attorneys has given back to the community in outstanding ways. This will be the third year that they decided to give donations to charities in lieu of client gifts for the holidays. But not only do they give their money, they also give countless hours of time as well as supplies. Really the involvement can't be measured.

We decided that we needed a site that not only achieves the voting, but also tells their philanthropic story. In terms of medium: we decided to use a parallax scrolling technique to tell what we couldn't say on a static page. Check it out, vote, and consider donating on your own to these great organizations!

Collaborative Branding & Site Design Launch: Jones Valley Teaching Farm

// Reblogged from ran.ge/blog
I love working on design for incredible organizations with amazing and talented people! This past spring, I was able to collaborate with Kelly Housholder, Cary Norton, and Jordan Sowards on rebranding for Jones Valley Teaching Farm in Birmingham, AL. Under the creative direction of Kelly, we collaborated on the rebranding, logo, and color palette.. which she then worked to produce some incredible messaging copy from Jordan, which is all pulled together by the brilliant photography that Cary took! All of this while working closely with JVTF's executive director, Grant Brigham.

I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of this relaunch, for such a great organization  We renamed them from "Jones Valley Urban Farm" to "Jones Valley Teaching Farm" to more accurately portray what their main initiative is in our community: Education.

Continuing from the rebranding I collaborated on with Kelly, we then collaborated on the  website structure and design that just launched last Friday with the development by Andrew Norcross. JVTF has so much to say and so much to give back to the community. We started with wire-framing and information architecting and then went onto design. Kelly was extremely meticulous in working in every detail out with Grant and making sure nothing was overlooked. In particular, I really enjoyed working on the blog category structure & icons.
