One! International had an older web site that was professional however the administration team found it was tricky to update. Through discussions we determined that we would keep their content mangement system WordPress but be sure that we provided them with enough training that they would be comfortable updating the web site on their own.
One! International wanted to have a web site that could grow with them. They have been growing over the past year and now have One! International organizations in Canada as well as in the United States.
Their web site needed to create an emotional connection to the web site visitor and so we made sure to use a variety of images that are of live people rather than using any kind of stock images. It was very important to the organization to show their core values and to make sure that all voices involved with the organization were shown on the web site by images and quotes from students that benefit from the organization’s efforts to the volunteers that give their time and energy.
Platypi and One! International has also worked on blog strategy and how we can use the WordPress tools to our best advantage. We are looking forward to training their team in August 2015.
