Drupal 8 Website Design & Development
YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish needed a technically advanced site that could support the communication needs of multiple departments, all with different programs and end-goals, in a user-friendly design.
What We Did
- Technical Audit
- Drupal Design & Development
- Website Development
- Search Engine Optimization
- User Centered Design
Fuse IQ built a beautifully designed, easy to manage, and scalable Drupal 8 website that highlights YWCA’s programs and offerings, and increases donor engagement.
About the Project
In 2015, Fuse IQ was hired by the YWCA of Seattle | King | Snohomish to embark on a multi-phase development project to redesign their website. With over 35 active programs supporting the YWCA's key initiatives - Housing, Health & Safety, Economic Advancement - they were in desperate need of a site that could easily organize and showcase their vast offerings, and promote their mission within the community. Our website development process dove deep into the goals of the organization, their staff that would manage the site, and the needs of users who would ultimately be using it.
Technology Audit & Assessment
Information Architecture & User Experience Strategy
With over 35 programs supporting the community around Seattle, it was imperative that the YWCA had a taxonomical relationship across their site, where information could be displayed and structured in a helpful, practical way. We custom designed several key components that support this goal, allow the site to be scalable, and make it easier for users to engage. Our custom design includes:
Programs + Services Finder
A robust tool that helps users to locate YWCA services by identifying who they are, areas of need, and their location
An easily updatable calendar for users to stay current on events hosted by YWCA and their individual programs
Blogs & Newsroom
Two separate news centers, one scalable with individual blogs for YWCA entities and one for press releases and media professionals
An intuitive mapping feature to locate and learn more about YWCA locations in King and Snohomish counties
A connection point for all content on the site relating to an Issue Area, which are comprised of YWCA’s key initiatives - Housing, Health & Safety, and Economic Advancement
Easily Managed Design Elements
With the use of Drupal Paragraphs, YWCA is able to add various design elements across the site including Calls to Action, Media Highlights, Expandable Accordions and more
By structuring information properly, and providing these unique tools, users are presented with a very strong set of website features that take YWCA to the next level of donor engagement and client services delivery.
"Fuse IQ brought a wide swatch of talent to the project, and have created a new website that will make it easy for people to find our services and support our mission. It is beautiful and thoughtfully designed, and will make a positive impact on our organization and the community. We look forward to working with Fuse IQ on future projects!"
