AAF-MS Gulf Coast, an advertising non-profit committed to protecting and preserving the advertising industry, determined their current website lacked the creative edge and innovative elements that an organization that serves the local advertising community should have. The new design needed to bring AAF Gulf Coast's web presence up to the high standards of today's creative industry. It was imperative that their new site was dynamic, visually engaging, and reflected their commitment to advertising standards and practices.
The American Advertising Federation Mississippi Gulf Coast (AAF-MS Gulf Coast) affiliate of the American Advertising Federation (AAF) is a non-profit organization serving a diverse group of advertising professionals along the Gulf Coast. Their network includes individuals in media, advertising, communications, sales, service, the arts and non-profit organizations. AAF-MS Gulf Coast's mission is to promote and protect the advertising industry through a variety of government relations, education programs, and public service campaigns.
AAF-Gulf Coast's new website design incorporates their existing affiliated AAF branding, but with a twist to distinguish their chapter from other AAF organizations. Using the existing branding, the new site includes the curved line from their logo as section dividers and throughout the website to embrace AAF's branding but also sets AAF-Gulf Coast apart.
The website features a fully responsive design, using large images and text to display upcoming events and the latest blogs on the homepage. The design also included an online member registration, interactive historical timeline and event calendar.
