Improving non-profit usability.

An example of the kind of project you'll be working on.

Your client is a non-profit organisation that provides support to victims of gender-based violence, as well as access to social justice. They’ve had extremely limited funding to date and operate simply off an old Wordpress site. They’ve noticed that visitors to their site access different pages, but seldom go on to seek access to social justice services or local welfare services. Working in teams, your task is to build a wireframe and prototype of a new site that will increase usage and access for all of the services provided by the non-profit.

Expert teachers who care about you as an individual.

We limit class sizes so that teachers are able to give undivided support and feedback to each student. You’ll be given valuable perspective and expert input the entire time.
