Beautiful Form, Perfect Function.
We’re committed to web design that works.
Our charity web designers love clean, simple and user-friendly design that strikes the perfect balance between style and substance. We might hit the mark first time around or we may require some collaboration to get things just right. But our charity web designers will keep going until we get it just right, all along never forgetting we’re not designing for ourselves, or even for you as a client. We’re designing for your charity’s target audience.
We Shape, We Build.
Crafted thinking that brings ideas to life.
When we take on a web design project for a charity or not-for-profit, we like to do things thoroughly. We start with understanding your organisation’s goals, audience needs and key messages. From here, we create a plan to develop concepts for your website that are simple, usable and beautifully designed. Our charity web designers also take into consideration your charity’s needs for the future, ensuring our ideas are sustainable and able to evolve over time. Together we turn the brief into a story for your charity that is unique, engaging and results focused.
Charity begins with the right tools.
Because web design for charities is all about building the right applications and websites to effect change, increase impact and raise awareness, we have always focused on developing software that not only works for the intended audience, whether it’s internal or external to the organisation, but is also easily accessible, secure and properly takes into account privacy concerns.
Modern charities rely extensively on web tools to attract and manage donors and recipients and they must give greater attention to the accessibility of these tools. Web accessibility and excellent UX ensures that all groups that form the audience are responsibly cared for and they can participate fully, either to help the organisation by volunteering or to access the charity’s services. This can mean that the charity websites need to be friendly for a number of modern devices and search engines, but also that they follow the latest web standards and can be used as intended even by people with disabilities, for example.
Well-crafted charity websites can help a great deal with building awareness and disseminate information through online campaigns, forums and informational content; they should also provide the means to recruit and organise volunteers and raise the necessary funds to be able to achieve their goals. We believe that developing charity websites that focus on looking “cutting-edge” without responsibly addressing how they are meant to support the organisation and its efforts, are a hit and miss.
Working with a large number of charitable organisations over almost 20 years, Totally has learnt first hand about the distinct needs of the non-profit sector and refined its working processes to deliver web applications and websites to appropriately address those needs as efficiently as possible. We use an agile methodology for all projects and, more important, we invest time to learn about the purpose and audience of the software we develop.
Totally has demonstrated a commitment to building a strong working relationship with us – and this is highlighted by the personal involvement of senior staff members throughout the process.
