YMCA Scotland are a brilliant charity who work with young people to see them reach their full potential. They approached us to redevelop their website to better communicate their priorities and enable them to tell stories of all that they’re up to.
We spent a long time, really trying to understand, mapping out all their various activities and partnerships. Being a youth charity, visually they wanted to make it all about young people, real people in real communities, so we grabbed the camera and spent a few days visiting some of their projects.
They already had a content management system (CMS) but it wasn’t simple enough to use and didn’t allow them to update everything they needed to. We built the new site on WordPress so they could do it all themselves.
A website was only the start of it. Since then we’ve worked with them to produce a wide range of print material, annual reports, brochures and promotional for many of their other projects and initiatives.
The passion they carry for community based youth work is genuinely inspiring, and it’s been a privilege to work with them in furthering the vision they have for supporting young people in Scotland.
