Project Seahorse Website

Advancing global ocean conservation



You didn’t just give us a website, you gave us a tool for conservation.

The Challenge

Project Seahorse is a marine conservation organization based in Vancouver and the UK. They had put together a website on Squarespace that had grown unwieldy over the years. It was hard to find information for their various user groups and hard for them to explain their work easily.

Collaborating under Backyard Creative (now iilo), we helped create a website that better showcased their extensive research, is much easier to navigate and looks professional and inviting.

Project Scope

  • Refined illustration clearly explains client’s work in ocean conservation
  • Users can find all site pages and subpages easily, without any content getting buried
