Site Launch – Hope Gardens

by  Joseph Hinson

We recently launched, a non-profit in Southern California that provides a safe haven for homeless women and children living in Los Angeles. We wanted to talk a little about it here.

Our Role

Working very closely with the Portnoy Media group, we saw this project through from beginning to end. The client had a very specific design they wanted to go with, including the thermometer on the front page. The thermometer would be dynamic (change depending on specific information), and go up as people donated money.


The client wanted to be able to manage their donors in a control panel only accessible by the administration. As mentioned above, they wanted this to reflect in the thermometer. They also wanted to be able to easily change the Naming Opportunities page, below is a sneak peak of what we came up with.
