MARLBOROUGH, MA March 21, 2017 – Wakefly partnered with Thrive Support & Advocacy and their design agency, Idea Agency, to do a major redesign of their site to match their new branding. This site was built in WordPress using the One Press theme. It was a fairly simple site, but a marked improvement from what was there before. Wakefly integrated with EventBrite to automatically pull in events to a calendar, PayPal to accept donations and MailChimp to collect newsletter subscribers. The audience of this site will in part be the public and in part the participants with Thrive, so accessibility and ease of use were huge factors. The entire project took 4 months to complete.
Wakefly was able to provide a high quality website for free so this nonprofit is able to put those resources towards something meaningful.
