Heart, Love & Soul Website
The website re-design for Heart, Love & Soul (HLS) – a community non-profit based in Niagara Falls – has upgraded a muted site with limited functionality into a comprehensive, engaging user experience with a colorful visual aesthetic, clear content organization, improved mobile presentation, and fresh copywriting.
“OtherWisz Creative came in and created a website that is as warm and welcoming as our organization is,” said Jillian Johnson, Marketing and Communications Manager at Heart, Love & Soul. “The new website displays our services and programs very clearly and illustrates an accurate and visually appealing picture of HLS.”
It all starts with a plan
To kick-off this project, we met with the team at HLS to get a more complete picture of their services, their guests, and their role in the community. Johnson noted, “The old website was difficult to navigate, did not offer a clear picture of HLS, and was also extremely difficult to edit internally.” Working directly with their staff, our designers developed a revised site map to help HLS list and organize their service offerings, and make it much easier for users to navigate.
New photography is worth 1,000 words
The OW team provided copywriting services to update and refine all of HLS’ content – especially related to their programs – making sure to include relevant keywords that will help the new website be more easily found by people searching online. We also scheduled a half day photoshoot on-location at HLS, which allowed us to capture authentic photos of the facility for use on the new website. These photos show interactions between the HLS guests and employees in a way that stock photography never could, adding to the candid and hopeful impression the website gives of the organization.
The newly-launched website has completely transformed how HLS is externally viewed and understood, giving the organization the ability to promote their services to people in need and appeal to future donors, other community service providers, potential volunteers and the Niagara Falls community.
“The new website absolutely improves our ability to connect with a broader audience,” said Johnson. “Everything is at the fingertips of the user who now can easily contact us with any questions, develop a complete understanding of Heart, Love and Soul, understand how we can help them, how they connect with on social media, and much more.”
