Children in Crisis

Children in Crsis wireframes and design.


CAF Bank information architecture, design, and styles guide.

I worked on this project for Children in Crisis during my time a New Digital Partnership, an agency that specialise in designing for the Drupal platform. This was their pro-bono project and I was the assigned designer.

Children in Crisis wanted to add a store to their website so their supporters could buy virtual gifts. They wanted to expand how they raise money for their education programmes that help more children go to school in parts of Africa by allowing customers to purchase virtual gifts.

As this small store had to be delivered in a very short time, due to our long-time working relationship with Children in Crisis, I was able to work out how the products could be filtered and presented. Once a sitemap was agreed I created some very basic wireframes. Using the CIC branding, I was able to create the final design.

The Result

Since this was work was completed I have learned a lot about DDA compliance (Disability Discrimination Act) and accessibility. There are aspects that I would change:

  • Their brand yellow doesn't have enough contrast so I would an alternative
  • Not have the product names in all caps

The end result is a very simple, clean e-commerce design.
