About the project —

I saw people in my online crafting communities looking for ways to use their skills and extra materials to make a positive impact. Unfortunately, many amazing charities and organizations requesting handmade items are not easy to find online, and it may be even more difficult to navigate websites and compare projects just to begin. StitchGood is meant to be a living directory of these organizations and their needs. It allows for discovery in a way that is not currently possible.

I designed the logo and website to feel modern and clean in contrast to the many cluttered and outdated websites I visited in my research. The design was also driven by images to help develop empathy between the visitor and the cause. I built the responsive prototype using Bootstrap and jQuery.
