L.A.C.E.S. is a nonprofit operating in Liberia dedicated to changing children’s lives through sports, education and feeding programs. Their previous website was outdated and difficult to work with – the team needed more flexibility in their content management system. Working with the L.A.C.E.S. director, Stephanoff Media designed and built the new website using the WordPress CMS and integrating a new online donation system into their site. Visit their site at: www.laces.org.
Based on a full site audit with the L.A.C.E.S. Director, we streamlined the design with an open and responsive design. They wanted to better highlight primary aspects of the organization with special attention to brand identity.
Site integration with a new donation platform, Classy.org, allows L.A.C.E.S. to create and manage multiple giving paths.
We developed special fundraising initiatives that create targeted giving and feed dynamic status updates automatically through Classy.org’s APIs. Beyond donation integration, the L.A.C.E.S. website creates additional ways to get involved with fundraising projects and pledges.
L.A.C.E.S. Ebola Response
L.A.C.E.S. staff in Liberia led initiatives to educate their communities on sanitation while the U.S. staff raised money to provide buckets and bleach to families. Because of these strategies, not a single child contracted Ebola in the L.A.C.E.S. communities. This video, produced by Stephanoff Media, highlights the work on the ground and thanks supporters.
Print & Marketing Design
Documentary DVD Design
Power of Play documents the work of L.A.C.E.S in post-civil war Liberia. The Power of Play film let’s you experience the construction of a better future for Liberian children. Through personal stories you will understand how a once war-torn country is being transformed through the power of sports. The DVD sleeve and marketing postcard were designed by Stephanoff Media.
The L.A.C.E.S. team wanted to move on from generic end-of-year fundraising cards to ones that feature staff and children in the Liberia communities. These pieces double as donation cards and photo holiday cards.
Stephanoff Media developed a series of infographic posters for L.A.C.E.S. annual fundraising dinners. The large posters allow attendees to browse the room, each station highlighting a different impact of the L.A.C.E.S. programs. This is the largest of the infographics with the final piece spanning six feet.
