Sydney Peace Foundation Website
The Sydney Peace Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that is responsible for Australia’s only prize for peace, the Sydney Peace Prize. The Foundation’s priorities are to promote universal human rights and peace with justice in any context, locally and internationally. In 2011 I was fortunate enough to work with the Sydney Peace Foundation on the design and implementation of their new website.
Aiming to increase the organisation’s web presence and provide their supporters with a better website experience, this design has given the Sydney Peace Foundation the ability to take full control of the content of the site using WordPress as a content management system (CMS). WordPress is a free, open-source interface that is easy to use and require very little training. The Foundation’s staff can add new blog posts, latest news, events and update page content without the need of a web designer. This saves the organisation money and time.
- Fully customisable home page and sub pages
- Home page slideshow to promote special events and campaigns
- Latest News that automatically appears on the homepage
- Blog capability which publishes the latest post on the home page
- An image carousel to promote the past Sydney Peace Prize recipients
- Image gallery and light-box functionality
- Social networking connections
- E-newsletter subscription
- A stable, powerful wordpress framework
The Sydney Peace Foundation has been very impressed with the quality and originality of Jonathon’s (Joni’s) designs. We’ve worked with him to redesign a new website which is getting very positive feedback, as well as for designing our annual report and publicity material. All the work has been of a consistently highly standard, delivered on time and on budget. The designs have been innovative and have reflected well the branding of our organisation. Joni is very reliable and are competitively priced, and I would no hesitate to recommend him to large and small business alike, as well as for personal graphic design projects. Joni is professional, easy to work with and I wish him the best with future clients.
