Many months ago, the quest to re-do our website began. As the Communications Manager for A Woman’s Place (AWP), it was my responsibility to explore the possibilities. Domestic violence is a tough subject, and there has been much discussion about how to present our information and message. For years the website was subdued. The colors were subdued. The images were subdued. The words were subdued. A few years ago we updated the site, and the colors although still fairly muted were more appealing, the images showed happier people, the words were more hopeful, definite improvement.
It’s now 2014, and we have a vision of a flourishing society, a mission of empowering women, and ending intimate and domestic violence for all. With that in mind we have created a new website that is bright, bold and beautiful.
We hope that the deep purple, bright fuschia, bold teal, and rich gold will entice you to peruse our new site, and to come back often.
We are here to help. We are here to serve. We are here for the Bucks County Community, and beyond.
This project, as the cliche says, took a small village, both internally and externally, and I would like to personally, and officially thank Greg Cawood, of IQnection, our former web host, for his and his teams time, talents, dedication, and support of AWP for many years. Great people to work with, especially locally, and I would highly recommend them. I would also like to thank Meg Higgins, of Firespring, our new web host, and one of the most patient people in my life right now, for bearing with me during my learning curve, and for being right there with me every step of the way, your gentle guidance and encouragement made all the difference.
It has been quite a journey, and we are thrilled to share our Bright, Bold, Beautiful, and Brand New website with you. We would love to know what you think. Please comment below or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My usual motto is: “It’s about the journey, not the destination”, but I have to say this time, I am glad we have arrived!
Exhausted but excited 🙂
