Digital Impact

  • Strategy
  • Original Design
  • Website Development

The digitalIMPACT.io site is designed to help nonprofit organizations and foundations use digital data ethically, safely, and effectively.

Armed with a clear set of strategic objectives from the Stanford PACS, Fair North Digital began by developing a content strategy and data architecture based on available (and needed) documents and resources.

An original design and full responsive user interface was created in Wordpress using an iterative approach. The design and features evolved as content was being created and supplied. This allowed unique and interesting content interactions to emerge as creative ways to present concepts using original illustrations and dynamic web technologies.

The Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History

  • Design
  • Contextual Search
  • Architecture

The Osgoode Society is a non-profit organization with a focus on Canadian legal history. They not only facilitate and maintain an extensive oral history archive, but also publish books on a wide range of topics within their mandate.

Much of the content for the 100 books, 80 authors and over 600 oral histories was present on the original website, but the content was not well organized or searchable. Fair North Digital was entrusted with the redesign and re-architecture of the website to modernize and improve this experience.

A new responsive website was built in Wordpress with a fresh new design and a significant content re-architecture was undertaken. Content was organized into a series of logical categories and all related content was linked together in an easy to follow and clear manner. Contextualized search was added to ensure that users will quickly find any information they are looking for.

Living Lutheran

  • Website Development
  • Content Migration

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America was rebranding their flagship magazine - The Lutheran - to a redesigned publication called Living Lutheran. Fair North Digital was engaged to work with the ELCA's in-house design and editorial team and create the web presence for this new publication.

Armed with a responsive site design from the client, we embarked on the task of developing an engaging and easy to navigate website built in Wordpress. Archival articles dating back to 2013, with corresponding images, were in digital format but had to be migrated from more than one legacy content management system.

The new site was launched in March 2016. Features on the website include; advanced publishing/editorial workflow, contextual related stories, email digest and integrated services with third parties such as Azure, and Amazon Web Services.

DePAW University, Canine Campus

  • Original Design
  • Website Development
  • Photography

DePAW University, Canine Campus is a daycare, training, grooming, education and boarding facility located in Geneva, IL, a western suburb of Chicago.

Fair North Digital was tasked with creating an original website design to share the story of DePAW University and to promote its many services to pet owners.

The design is a lively and colorful expression of what makes this such a special place. Custom photography was produced to compliment the already-great pet photographs owned by DePAW to fill this visually rich website with needed imagery. Potential customers can get an excellent feel for the high quality care they will receive when they bring their pets to DePAW University.

Sky Blue Sky Sandwich

  • Original Design
  • Website Development
  • Photography

Readers of NOW Magazine have chosen Sky Blue Sky Sandwich Company as the "Best Sandwich" in Toronto in 2014 and 2015.

The previous website was largely text-based and did not give any visual cues as to how great the food or the two locations looked. The new website design placed a high priority on rich and compelling photography.

Everywhere you look on the website you'll see mouth-watering photos of sandwiches and other menu items. Much of the photography was created specifically for this new website, and almost all menu items are presented. Site visitors can place their order for a meal at either location, or for catering right on the website, and find out what musical acts will be performing on their special Live Music and Sandwiches events.

Site visitors can order a meal for pick up at either location or arrange catering on the website. They are also able to find out the musical acts that will be performing at SBS's special "Live Music and Sandwiches" events.
