Solid Ground is one of those organizations that makes you proud and hopeful for your city. For the last 41 years, they have supported numerous programs aimed at breaking the cycles of homelessness and hunger, and they are tireless advocates for social justice in our community. Solid Ground needed an entirely new website that better reflected who they are as an organization and enabled them to better serve members of the community—both the people they help and their growing network of donors and volunteers.
One of the biggest challenges we faced was capturing the amazing diversity of what they offer without overwhelming users. (We incorporated more than 15 disparate blogs and program websites into the new site!) This is a story that needed to be told in many layers, and, as you can imagine, this is not a group that stands still for long. They needed to be able to rapidly update this site—manually and automatically—to reflect the latest news and resources that directly impact the members of their community, so we put just as much thought into what’s “under the hood” as we did into the front-end design.
We worked side-by-side with members of the Solid Ground team for nearly a year to realize this vision, and we’re truly proud to have played a small part in the continued success of this organization.
