Marker seven is thrilled to announce that it has been selected by The International Academy of the Visual Arts as a 2014 Communicator Awards Winner for its work on the Human Needs Project (HNP). Humanneedsproject.org received:
- Award of Excellence, the organization’s highest recognition, in the category of Websites: Social Responsibility
- Award of Distinction in the category of Websites: Charitable Organizations/Non-Profit
Marker Seven worked with Human Needs Project founders Connie Nielsen and David Warner to create a platform that would inform donors, reach new supporters, and educate a wide audience about the organization’s mission. “We helped them create a strong brand for their organization – from brand identity and visual design to content strategy. We are very happy the site is receiving this recognition for how well it communicates HNP’s vision ,” says John Clauss, CEO of Marker Seven. “We saw that the work they do is amazing – we wanted to be sure the rest of the world saw it, too.”
HNP builds community facilities – called Town Centers – that fight poverty by serving physical needs with clean water and sanitation, and also social needs with skills training, micro-credit, and access to computers. Each center is developed in partnership with the community it will serve and, upon completion, will be locally owned and managed.
“We are very grateful to Marker Seven for donating so much of their time and talent,” says Megan Warner, HNP’s website project lead. “The new site gives us many more tools for reaching our critical audiences. We could not have produced such an effective, professional site without them.”
