Featured Designs

Catholic Mobilizing Network Catholic Mobilizing Network

The Catholic Mobilizing Network was outgrowing their Wordpress site and needed a site that would make it easier to weave together a variety of interrelated content: News, actions, resources, events, statements, and resources that could all be cross-referenced by state and issue. In addition, the maps and states needed a refresh and a tighter integration with their Salsa CRM was desired.

LynchingSitesMem.org LynchingSitesMem.org

The Lynching Sites Project of Memphis is a network of people seeking to, in the words of Ida B. Wells, "shine the light of truth" on past wrongs with the expectation that being honest about the past will allow us to better understand the present and begin to heal. The website is one of the primary public faces that the project has to display their research on past lynchings via an interactive map, articles, and scans of archival material.

SproutCreekFarm.org SproutCreekFarm.org

Sprout Creek Farm is a functioning educational farm that produces award-winning artisan cheeses in addition to its educational programming. We've recently worked with them to streamline their website and the way they manage donations, registrations, cheese sales, and contact data. We tried to provide an on-ramp to the life of the Farm as much as possible via a short background video on the homepage as well as by featuring their incredible library photos in the background on interior pages.

Testimonials

The Beyond Charity report looks terrific, both in print and as a PDF, which is important because this piece was designed with electronic distribution in mind. As a writer, I especially appreciate that the report is visually engaging, which makes it a more effective tool for communicating information to a variety of stakeholders. The words and the design work hand in hand, and the design is both attractive and functional, giving readers important cues and multiple entry points into a necessarily text-heavy document. Great design like this makes my job easier and more rewarding -- and as always, it was a pleasure working with CEDC!
