Designing and building a new website for a non-profit organization to show what kinds of services they offer to the community.

I met the organization executives to understand the primary business goals. They needed a website to brand themselves and to show the events they organize, which eventually help to get donations since the website gives credibility to the organization. Then I started to market search about other similar non-profit organizations to collect ideas on what to include and how to design.
Market research and the business goals helped me to create a simple sitemap to point out the needs of the organization.
I created the simple homepage wireframe to decide the composition of the landing page. Since donations, community involvement, and reaching out are the three main areas for the organization, I set them in the landing page accompanied by a sympathetic hero picture.
After creating various color schemes, we agreed on using turquoise as the primary color as the primary color since the word "turquoise" was derived from the French "turquois" and used to define Turkey’s Mediterranean shores. As a secondary color, I chose orange since it is complementary to turquoise.
I wanted to have knowledge of coding in general, so I decided to code this website and built the rest of the pages.
