Sneak Peek: La Casa de las Madres Website Redesign
We’re busy at work on a website redesign for La Casa de las Madres and wanted to give you a sneak peek at some of our designs before the official launch in a few weeks.
La Casa de las Madres provides shelter, advocacy, and support services to battered women and their children in San Francisco. In the past, we’ve branded their annual fundraising event, the redHOT* party. We are thrilled to be working with an organization that does such meaningful work in our community.
Check out the screenshots below– the old design appears first, then Loud Dog’s redesign. Feel free to click each image to enlarge and get a better look!
Here are some quick highlights on the project:
- Inspired by La Casa’s logo, the new website’s header and footer form a speech bubble, with the page content in the middle.
- We transitioned them from a hard-coded site, which was difficult for staff members to edit, to a friendlier WordPress site.
- We highlighted their best communication tools, their newsletter and their social media channels, on the homepage.
Keep an eye out for a more detailed post describing the design, engineering, and strategic thinking that contributed to the overall redesign.
