We Will Speak Out

We Will Speak Out

The Client

We Will Speak Out Front PageWe Will Speak Out is another project delivered as part of our ongoing partnership with Hands Up. We Will Speak Out is a coalition of charitable organisations working together to end sexual violence.

The Job

The We Will Speak Out website needed to highlight the issues at hand, give country profiles detailing the specific issues in particular areas of the world, and allow people to make the We Will Speak Out pledge.

The key for the curators of the site was making it as easy as possible to organise content related to each country.

A clean, no-nonsense homepage that won’t date quickly and simple navigation was key to the design.

The Result

Using advanced WordPress content management features Oikos and Hands Up created a site that’s simple to update, and that makes it as easy as possible for the curators to add content into the correct places.

Custom Post Types make it clear where to add content in the WordPress Dashboard, and clever use of meta data links all the information together.  Custom widgets ensure that the right data appears in the right place.

Some clever JavaScript and jQuery helps dynamically layout sections of the site and neat tricks like providing easy access to a collection of map icons take the hassle out of adding content.

With the Pledge counter rising, we’ve really enjoyed helping bring a fresh new look and simple content management to this brilliant project.
