Mental Health Association of South Mississippi is a great non-profit that helps people around the local community, so we wanted to make their site informative but not overwhelming. We created a design that worked with pastel colors and features large, bright call-to-action buttons and sections.
The overall goal was to create a website and marketing platform that would engage the visitor and entice them to donate to the organization. To accomplish this, we built the site around the donation model and gave the visitors multiple opportunities to either make a one-time donation or to donate to a specific part of the organization.
The brand of Mental Health Association of South Missisippi revolves around the people who donate their time and the people that use the organization for its various services.
Our designs show this brand and give people a reason to get behind the organization. The brand reflects the cause and its workers to pull at the heartstrings of donors, and shows them who they help with their donations.
In order to move potential donors, we created memorable traditional pieces and a creative digital website.
Our agency created multiple printed designs for the Mental Health Association of South Mississippi. We created fliers, RSVP's and Save the Date post cards.
We created the themed designs to match their events and their website. For example, their "Don't Worry Be Happy" event was island themed, so our printed collateral matched the fun atmosphere and this theme was reflected on their website while it was being planned.
Online Event Tickets
Previously, the Mental Health Association of South Mississipi could only accept tickets offline. We created a unique and easy way for this organization to not only sell tickets online, but also sign up vendors and sponsors. We gave them an outlet where they can publish real-time information about an event and earn money using Paypal donations.
Every event is different, and the way the events are presented on the website reflect this customization.
Throughout the website we display custom animations, including a real-time chart that displays the Mental Health Association of South Mississippi's commitment and statistics as well as their blog articles.
Our results not only brought Mental Health Association of South Mississippi's digital brand into a new century; but helped people commit to events, donate to a wider-array of projects, and helped spread the word about this fantastic organization. Our direct impact can be felt around the Mississippi Gulf Coast via offline promotional material, social media live events and a more-trusting website.
For the first event Mental Health Association of South Mississippi held after the website went live, they had the biggest turn out and the most donations from a single event in their history.
