Marker Seven Revamps Koret Website to Convey Legacy of Community Giving

Marker Seven, an award-winning digital agency, today announced it completed a site redesign for the Koret Foundation, one of San Francisco’s leading philanthropic organizations. The enhanced Koret site showcases the Foundation’s support for nonprofit organizations engaged in innovative, exemplary work in a range of programs, including education, the arts, culture and civic life, as well as Israel and Jewish peoplehood.

“We are enormously proud that leading San Francisco institutions such as the Koret Foundation engage us to help them tell their story through the digital medium,” said John Clauss, Marker Seven president. “Our goal was to redesign the Koret site to help visitors better understand the grant giving philosophy of the Foundation and showcase the many community and civic programs it supports. To do this, the site places a primary focus on telling the stories of key grant recipients, and we have encouraged site exploration through intuitive User Experience design."

Marker Seven enhanced the site structure to make it easier for users to find information about the Foundation, access its various publications and learn about the Koret grantees. The site now is more visually appealing through the use of a bright, energetic color palette and large compelling photography. Using lots of negative space also reduced clutter.

 Marker Seven developed the site using a content management system that enables the Koret team to easily update content on its own.

“We’re already seeing positive results from the new site,” said Kirsten Mickelwait, Koret’s communications officer.  “The initial feedback has been very complimentary.  Marker Seven was quite accommodating throughout the process, which we really appreciated because there were many levels of stakeholders on our end.”
