The non-profit organisation Hills Community Support Group (HCSG) recently has rebranded and needed a website to support their new brand identity: Rise: Your Community Support Network.

With an organisation that does so much, the challenge was to create a site where people can easily grasp the size of the organisation and the aspects. The key to the site is to give focus to the 5 key service areas; aged care, mental health, youth, people with disabilities and care givers. Rise has a strong community focus with all the board members and leadership team enriching the corporate culture.

As the web is becoming an increasingly important resource for finding support services, Rise needed to have a website that was highly accessible and optimised to work on both computers and tablets. As those with a disability or aged would access the site it was important that the text was resizable, keyboard shortcuts for navigation and a contrast mechanism was programmed into the site. Even their Facebook page has a complete short cut system for the visually impaired!

We have worked with The Globe now for more than four years and always enjoy working with their talented design team. Here are a few screen grabs below:

We celebrated the launch of the website with the amazing team from The Globe and celebrated with a lavish #LaunchCake party!
