CEDC (nonprofit web & graphic design)

Office Updates

Beth Ponticello, our Art Director, has been working with us and our partners since 1995, which is no small amount of time in the graphic design world and is two eternities in the web world.

After nearly 14 years, it's time for us to bid a bittersweet bon voyage to Will Simpson, who has been involved in almost every aspect of CEDC's work over the years.

The world of SEO is always changing, and while some of the algorithm adjustments seem rather obscure and hard to use in day-to-day life, a few of the (relatively) recent changes that Google has made to its ranking algorithms are fairly straightforward to implement.

Ivory Free

One of our recent projects involved developing a subsection of the WildAid site for their Ivory Free campaign. Saving the elephants is an obvious goal, but did you know that "blood ivory is thought to be funding the operations of [insurgent and terrorist groups]"?

One of the questions we are frequently asked is “How much does it cost for a website?” Our usual answer is “It depends.” (It's kind of like asking “How much is a new car?” It depends on a lot of factors, such as which options you want to include, whether it's a hybrid and so on). Your best bet is to put together a strong RFP (Request for Proposal) that you can send around to give an accurate idea of the scope of the new site and get an accurate estimate of what it will cost to build it.

We were thrilled to be able to attend the Nonprofit Roundtable's CommMission event last week at the offices of the Center for Association Leadership offices.  The theme was "Leveraging Communications" and there was a fabulous panel made up of Jim Dinegar, Laura Meyers, Ilir Zherka, and Debbie Jarvis.

The Bottom Line:

Responsive design for your site is good for Search Engine Optimization, avoiding duplication of work, and reducing overall costs. (, "Why Responsive Design is Good for SEO")
