- Limau Cancer Connection: Our team embarked on an exceptional project to assist Limau Cancer Connection, a non-profit organisation based in San Francisco, US, in designing their logo, brand identity, and website. The organisation focuses on advocating and supporting breast cancer warriors who are underserved and live in marginalised communities in Kenya. The project aimed to develop a brand strategy and a new website that would help Limau raise breast cancer awareness and provide access to preventive screening and diagnostic services in underserved black communities. Our team provided a range of services including web design, web development, logo design, brand identity, and graphic design to ensure that the project was of high quality and attractive to the target audience.
The new website, available at https://www.limaucc.org, is designed to be user-friendly and informative, providing visitors with easy access to the organisation's mission, services, and contact information
- Safe Space Hideout: We recently had the privilege of working with Safe Space Hideout, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending woman abuse. Our agency created a state-of-the-art website that provides a safe haven for women to access help and support. The visually appealing, user-friendly, and informative website reflects our client's values and showcases their mission to a wider audience. Visit their website at https://www.safespacehideout.org/ for more information.
- YouAngel Foundation: Another incredible project we completed was designing a website for YouAngel Foundation, a Ukrainian organization that provides free assistance to children in difficult life circumstances. The website we crafted showcases their mission and the support they offer to children facing severe illnesses or challenging situations.
