Project Overview

Having a working website is crucial to optimizing community engagement and successfully marketing a nonprofit. Having an attractive and intuitive website can increase the profile of an organization, its mission, and impact on the community as well as serve as a recruitment and development tool. During this project, a web designer defines and delivers a draft architecture and design options that not only meet the nonprofit’s needs but are also easy to maintain. The site’s design will be informed by research into communication goals, the needs of the nonprofit, and the key audience. From here the web designer creates a design that meets those needs and is built to match the technical capabilities of the nonprofit and can be used by a web developer to create a live site.

What activities will be completed as part of the project:
Analysis of the nonprofit’s desired features and website capabilities, as well as their ability to maintain the site.
Research to populate a Requirements Brief with enough information to inform the creation of the site.
Content Audit, Content Outline, and Content Delivery Plan.
Creation of draft architecture and design options (wireframes, site structure, and visual elements) that incorporates the nonprofit’s existing visual identity (logo), key messages, and other copy.

What activities won’t be completed as part of the project:
Build out and development of the website
Marketing and brand strategy
Social media strategy

My name is Amelia Hoppe, and I am a Director/ Member of a fully formed nonprofit called Emergency Legal Directors. I work at the public defenders' office during my daily life and am trying to get this INCREDIBLY needed organization off the ground. If you can help make this a reality, we (and the rest of Louisiana disaster victims) would be so incredibly grateful.
Key questions the nonprofit will need to answer:
What platform is the website going to be designed for (Squarespace, WordPress, etc.)?
What branding do you already have in place that can be used in the design for the site (logo, color palette, pictures, etc.)?
What is your target audience? Who are your stakeholders?

Description of what the deliverable will include and look like:
Discover Deliverable: A requirements brief that includes a summary of findings from the discovery process and a set of prioritized recommendations for the design of a website.
Design Deliverable: Construction of site architecture (Sitemap, Wireframes, and other elements of information design) and develop concepts that inform the look-and-feel, graphics, and other design elements of the site.


Nonprofit Overview

Emergency Legal Responders (ELR) is a Louisiana-based organization founded in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Our team is rooted in our experience working on cases stemming from Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Ida to Covid-19 to the BLM protests. We are attorneys, advocates, and community members who have worked for years to provide direct legal services to those impacted by emergency legal issues.

We provide direct legal aid through "boots on the ground" legal clinics, create tailored legal information slides, and train probono volunteers to help the communities they live in.

Legal emergencies are natural, social and economic. We are here to fill the "justice gap" that so many people in Louisiana live in.
