Sustainable Southeast Partnership
COLLABORATORS: LEE HOUSE (DESIGN), BETHANY GOODRICH (COMMS STRATEGY, PHOTO), LIONE CLARE (COMMS STRATEGY, PHOTO), SSP TEAM
In 2020-2021, I worked with a small team to create a new website for the Sustainable Southeast Partnership (SSP), a diverse network of tribal governments, organizations, businesses, and individuals working together to reach cultural, ecological, and economic prosperity for our communities and region.
Lee House designed the site, I developed a custom theme for the site using the Wordpress platform, and we worked closely with Bethany Goodrich, SSP’s Communications Director, Lione Clare of the Sitka Conservation Society, and several others from the SSP team.
We wanted to create a robust and engaging site that gave the SSP team the tools they needed to share their beautifully photographed, thoughtful, & well-written stories to a large audience online. This project really stretched my development skills because it was so complex in terms of content and organization.
Working with Lee’s mockups, I developed an interactive map for the homepage that allows the user to learn more about each of SSP’s partner communities. The associated pop-up with each community dynamically updates to include blog posts tagged as related to that community.
The site also includes a full-screen video backdrop on the homepage, a fully sortable blog with custom content blocks, and several layers of nested content pages to allow SSP to describe their values and tell the stories of their partners and programs.
