— PROJECT NAME
Pro Bono Connect
Pro Bono Connect (PBC) is the first public interest clearinghouse in the Netherlands and acts as intermediary between non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and law firms. It was established in November 2015 by the Dutch section of the International Commission of Jurists (NJCM) after extensive research among law firms, NGOs and foreign clearinghouses. Sixteen of the Netherlands’ largest law firms support Pro Bono Connect.
The project was executed together with another web designer. However, it was never finalized as PBC had other priorities that arose while the we were busy on the redesign. It stranded after the first iteration.
The old website of Pro Bono Connect was outdated and old-fashioned. The information was not always accurate and pages were abundant. It included information about PBC, their supporters, how they were governed, some previous experience and contact and personal information. However, on some pages, the same topic was discussed with different information. Making it cluttered and unclear to the reader. Also, lots of white space was used even though texts were long. My focus was on redesigning the home page, activities page, news & updates and contact page.
To provide the foundation with more than just a set of guidelines, a quick wireframe including the identified elements for improvements was created. The wireframe was focused solely on the landing page as most improvements would include a change in the landing page. The wireframe, as depicted below, directly guides a visitor of the page to a donation page. Additionally, it provides more information on Kenya Child Care, their way of working, local stories, pictures and blogposts. Each of the individual elements can link to pages that provide in-depth information on the subject. The header was also rearranged and reformulated.
