When I moved to Vancouver in 2002, one of my first jobs was packaging orders for Lunapads, a locally-owned feminist business that makes sustainable menstrual products. I have kept in touch with Madeleine and Suzanne, the ladies at the helm, ever since. Madeleine started Lunapads and has created a number of other community enriching programs since, including GDay for Girls (which I helped make the website for).
Her newest project, which I’m very excited about, is a creating a co-working space for parents. There is a real need for solutions for child care here in Vancouver where childcare costs rival university tuition. Also, you can bring dogs to co-working spaces but not children? Okay dogs don’t generally cry but still.
Simple Website with the Ability to Grow
Nestworks needed a web presence before they had a space, so that they could generate interest and investment. Their branding was created by a volunteer and likely to change in the future. They wanted a mailing list and a survey on the site, but beyond that, everything was likely to change as the project grew. I created a simple site on a custom WordPress theme that had the structure could be expanded as needed. As the project develops, the site will need tweaking, but they won’t need a new site for many years, as this site can be easily updated and expanded upon.
UPDATE: Nestworks rebranded and I rebuilt the site design and structure based on the new brand. Images shown here show both designs of the site with new brand first.
