Eva's Initiatives for Homeless Youth

Eva’s is an award-winning organization that provides shelter, transitional housing, and programming to help young people build brighter futures free of homelessness.

 

During the 2021 RGD Designathon, my team worked with Eva's to refresh brand colours, make suggestions for modernizing the website, and provide templates for social media posts. The other designer on my team worked on the social media templates while I focused on creating a mockup of the client's website homepage utilizing our suggestions.

Eva's also asked us to prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion when designing. To begin the project, we researched accessible design practices and took a look at the existing website. Overall, we noticed an unclear hierarchy, not many photos, and a lot of text. The website is also very light in colour, without much contrast.

Our website mockup uses more of the brand's colours, more imagery, and changes the order of some of the homepage contents.
