Website design and build for the Songwriters Association of Canada

Project details

This historic Canadian non-profit organisation approached us to provide a visual design and content strategy for their new front-end website. Over a period of months, we met regularly with the leadership team to understand the unique attributes and challenges facing their diverse membership. We then created a number of candidate designs and from the final selection, created a complete set of wireframes to pass to their developers.

A change of strategy meant that the client’s executive director asked use to also build the site in WordPress and to provide guidance for the complementary styling of the members’ section. With a tight deadline for the revised project, we converted our wireframes into a fully operational site in three weeks.

In parallel with the visual design, we also created new brand identity for the organisation and conducted all the copywriting for the new website.
