CEDC (nonprofit web & graphic design)

Office Updates

Sprout Creek Farm is a functioning educational farm that produces award-winning artisan cheeses in addition to its educational programming. We've recently worked with them to streamline their website and the way they manage donations, registrations, cheese sales, and contact data. We tried to provide an on-ramp to the life of the Farm as much as possible via a short background video on the homepage as well as by featuring their incredible library photos in the background on interior pages.

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.

Google Doodle for the birthday of Richard Trevithick

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.

The Bottom Line:

Online giving has risen almost 10% in 2012 alone, and more and more nonprofits are meeting their audience online. (Chronicle of Philanthropy)
