Illinois Action for Children

Illinois Action for Children's purpose is "supporting strong families & powerful communities where children matter most" and they deserve a website that matches those goals. I kept the design bright and approachable on top of a strong UX framework. I created a library of design elements that allows the client to build out highly-visual pages from within the WordPress admin.

Communication with their four audiences is paramount. 

I used the wireframes to explore different ways to combine different types of alerts and how to differentiate between active alerts and archived messages. Once the technical parts were in place, the design made the page come alive and ensure that a simple archive page was as stylish as the rest of the site.
