Island chefs collaborative

One of my recently completed web and branding projects involved a revamp of the Vancouver Island based non-profit the Island Chefs Collaborative (ICC)’s website. This is a non-profit and collective of chefs and food/beverage specialists who partner with local farms to preserve and develop local farms + food systems. I was hired by the Board and worked with the Director of Marketing to redesign their site for an overall brand that was bright and visually-heavy while still maintaining all of the information and text of the original site.

When designing the site and associated print materials, I drew upon traditional and modern cook-book designs and incorporated the ‘island’ look and feel that I have come to know and love (having lived on Vancouver Island before, this project is near and dear to my heart and I had to remember some of my favourite food spots to channel the coastal vibe and look). Working in close collaboration with the Marketing Director (and later meeting with the rest of the board) we settled on a design for the ICC site and print/digital materials their ‘Invasion Dinners’ special home-based dinner events.

This startup is aiming to pilot and scale up Somalia’s first electronic medical records system for clinics and hospitals. Khalid Hashi  founded OGOW (‘To Know’ in Somali) after his first trip to Somalia. Here he met his grandmother for the first time and accompanied her to an operation. There he realized that the doctor could not recall the last time his grandmother was seen. This prompted him to develop an innovative electronic records system that can be transferred between clinics and hospitals in the country.

My vision for this site was to create something that resembled a physical medical records form and had the following qualities: simple-easy to follow- and composed of a  three colour palette. Using colours adjacent to the Somali flag, white and blue (I used seafoam green to match the logo that was already developed), I tried to create a bright and airy website that enforces the connections that this records system aims to create throughout the country.
