Helping a Philanthropic Foundation to Tell Its Story

Print Design

One recent project we were proud to be a part of was helping the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation (DRK), a global venture philanthropy firm, to design and development a more effective website. The foundation supports early stage, high impact social enterprises that are working on some of society’s most difficult problems with the goal of making the world a better place.

The task for the team at Project6 was to help DRK expand their reach and unequivocally communicate the foundation’s powerful mission of supporting individuals who wish to change the world. Before we came on board, their website was only designed for desktops, and was difficult to navigate in some areas. However, most importantly it did not highlight the incredible stories of entrepreneurs and organizations that had benefited from the foundation. The old website also under-utilized DRK’s fantastic photography assets.

Working together with the foundation members, we helped to develop a site that matched the tone of the inspiring work and was also easy to manage. The project included designing a longer page scrolling experience across the site to showcase the various organizations as well as breaking news. Our team developed a simplified and streamlined architecture that created a single, unified portfolio section that allows visitors to browse through the people and organizations associated with the foundation. Another area we developed was the “community section” where alumni and entrepreneurs offer encouragement and share newsworthy events and resources.

Built on the WordPress platform, the new website is easy for the DRK staff to maintain and grow. In addition the site works seamlessly across all devices and is now reachable to a wider audience.
