The design of the new Project Open Hand website was guided by a few key goals:
- Highlight the roles Project Open Hand plays in the lives of its clients, donors, staff, and volunteers
- Engage the community through improved access to social connection and sharing features
- Simplify the organization and presentation of information so site visitors can easily find what they seek
- Present a modern and dynamic look that will serve Project Open Hand for many years
A key feature of the new site is a dramatically improved events calendar. Project Open Hand presents numerous events, and publicizes events presented by others that benefit the organization—ensuring easy access to event information was a key requirement. The new events calendar is prominently featured on the home page where the current month’s events can be seen at a glance. Additional event details, including Google Maps and easy importing to both iCal and Google Calendar, is just a click away.
The graphic design of the new site is bold and fun, with ample use of large type, bright colors, and graphical elements that represent Project Open Hand’s various content areas.
