About the Work
Founded in 1902 as a settlement house to help New York’s increasing immigrant population adjust to life in a new country, today Greenwich House offers programs in the arts, education and social services that provide thousands of New Yorkers with personal enrichment and cultural experiences.
Greenwich House’s remarkable community presence is rooted in history with an eye towards the future. Seeking help with an outmoded, impossible to update website, we created a fresh new palette and interface for the dynamic offerings of the organization.
Thinking through vastly different audiences, from seniors to nursery school parents, pottery school students to musicians, health-services patients to summer campers, we designed a flexible design system anchored by the relationships between different types of content, linking classes and events with people–and keeping in mind “most requested” features such as lunch menus and at-a-glance programming calendars.
In addition to an interactive timeline, the star interactive feature of the site is a four-filter class finder, which allows users to dive in by class type, program type, day of the week, and class level. This interface brings the richness of Greenwich House’s offerings to the fore and allows for quick and easy digestion of their wealth of offerings.
It’s been our great pleasure working alongside Greenwich House on their new website, continuing our commitment to community-minded organizations, educational institutions, and nonprofits in New York City and beyond.
