PANO provides its clients with many services including training seminars, legislative advocacy resources, and customized consulting. To better serve Pennsylvania’s vast nonprofit community, PANO needed help communicating their value and driving new membership. From our initial kickoff meeting with PANO’s leadership, we distilled all goals into one primary goal: to increase membership.

Their current website had ballooned over the years, collecting a large number of pages and outdated information. So we went to the drawing board, distilling PANO’s primary services as:
With the brand and structure in place, we set out to build and develop the site. The result is not only a website that looks beautiful (implementing vibrant colors, angles, and clean typography), but one built on a strategic foundation of clarity and simplicity.
