Our Work

Essential Partners

Homepage of Essential Partners, close up of woman's face in conversation around a table, text overlay says "Build a community strengthened by differences, connected by trust."

Essential Partners initially had funding to rebuild one section of their website. Their visual brand elements were strong, but they wanted to update and modernize their overall design. Our team worked with them to produce a modern web design in line with their existing brand, and relaunched their new site section in Drupal 8. Later, we moved the rest of their site into Drupal 8, extending the design to all of their content. 

CFLeads

We are community foundations leading change Now more than ever, community foundations need to lead change that builds strong, resilient communities where all people can participate and prosper.

Community Foundations Leading Change worked with Big Duck on a new brand strategy and messaging. Elise Weeks then extended that strategy into a visual brand, and a web design for a brand new WordPress website.

Bay Area Legal Services

Bay Area Legal Services wanted an accessible, mobile-friendly site that prioritized their clients in need. This Drupal 8 site features self-help resources for clients, resources for their donors and volunteers, and success stories for everyone. 

New England Quakers

We helped New England Yearly Meeting move to Drupal 8, reducing their content, and modernizing their messaging and design in the process. When Friends want to find a meeting, attend a youth retreat, or see a list of regional events, they can now find these things easily. 

Silent Spring Institute

Silent Spring Institute is a mission-driven scientific research organization dedicated to uncovering the environmental causes of breast cancer. SSI's content is a mix of complex scientific research and consumer-friendly information. The DevCollab team helped SSI organize their content during a discovery and content strategy phase. Design included a mobile-friendly, responsive site and the creation of new infographics. Their new site is built in Drupal 8.

Right Sharing of World Resources

RSWR gives grants to groups of marginalized women in Kenya, Sierra Leone, and India to fund individual micro-enterprise projects. Their small, distributed organization had an outdated site that had grown organically. It was hard for potential grantees and donors to understand what the organization did. The DevCollab team worked with RSWR to create clearer information architecture, visual brand, and a mobile-friendly web design. 

Cannabis Decoded

San Mateo County in California needed a website to help youth understand the risks of cannabis use, without sounding like it was talking down to them. We worked with The Social Changery to create an inclusive, accessible, and mobile-friendly site in Drupal 8. Kayla Jones created the distinctive visual brand for the site, and our design director Elise collaborated with Kayla to translate it into a website design.

The Establishment

The Establishment, which had moved to Medium.com, wanted to move back to an open source site in budget-friendly phases. We re-launched The Establishment in WordPress in 2018. When they ceased operations in 2019, we helped them convert their WordPress site into a static HTML archive that will live on into the future.
