Case Study

The Community Food Pantry of Reno/Sparks

The Details

The Community Food Bank of Reno/Sparks was struggling with an outdated website presence leading up to a major fundraiser.

Every year they feed over 25,000 people in Northern Nevada, a very worthwhile cause for us.

We also wanted to give them a brand refresh. They didn’t end up using this component, as they had just had their delivery van wrapped with their current logo, but they still loved it and we hope they use it when they’re ready to make the leap!

Challenges

  • Website slowness
  • Cluttered content, causing messaging to get lost
  • Difficult to navigate site menu
  • Outdated design

Solutions Provided

  • Copywriting
  • New Information Architecture Buildout
  • Website Design & Development
  • Rebranding

The Results

We offered up some fresh (note the pun) brand items for them to use in the future!
