In 2015, I worked again with 501 Commons to “refresh” their website design, similar to to PEPS. Having designed their existing site, our goals were simple:

  • Making white space more consistent and the design a little more “refined.”
  • Make the design responsive, working on any device.
  • Redo the home page to better reflect the full range of 501 Commons’ work.

“Your design worked beautifully! I sing your praises every chance I get.”

Nancy Long, 501 Commons Executive Director

Following a quick design process and a total rewrite of their theme in partnership with Jesse Snyder of Rasika Consulting, the new site met all the desired goals and allowed 501 Commons to better serve their expanding website audience.

The site kept many of the old site’s design elements that worked like the tiled landing pages. These designs were adjusted to work on any size screen including tablets and phones. A new design for the home page features 501 Commons clients and efficiently introduces visitors to the organization’s services, resources, and latest news.
