Designed a website concept for the relaunch of an arts and cultural social change organization. I conducted research with stakeholders in and outside the organization to validate use cases and prioritize features. I then conducted market research to gather inspiration on information architecture and design. Finally, I wireframed and tested concepts. The resulting concept resonated strongly with the client and became the basis for their new website.
Center for Cultural Power, formerly known as CultureStrike, is an artist of color led social change organization that seeks to amplify new cultural narratives via art and activism, and support artists and activists with the tools, knowledge, and resources to change society. The Center wanted to design a new website for their launch that both communicated their vision through its design, while also furthering their mission: turning their archive of resources, blog posts, and templates into an online home that empowers artists and activists.

Conversations with staff, artists of color, and leadership helped to gain a sense of both individual and organizational needs and priorities. CfCP's work is their ability to tell stories and amplify voices of marginalized people to write and publish new cultural narratives. They're at the forefront of cultural social change movements — and they're also a nonprofit that needs to meet fundraising objectives.
These conversations helped to generate a wishlist of functions, roles, and feature requirements for artists and staff.
