Serving the five boroughs of New York City, Day One partners with youth to end dating abuse and domestic violence through community education, supportive services, legal advocacy, and leadership development. This website refresh was dedicated to Day One help to them better manage content, display information for outreach events, and receive donations.
Day One focuses on providing local teens and young adults with specialized services to help ensure their safe futures. The need for the website refresh was to highlight Day One's mission, contact information, news about upcoming events, victim testimonials, and a path to exit the site easily.
After planning and iterating on a custom design solution, the issues of budget, timing and client accessibility gave way to the need to use a third party CMS. While the refresh still contained custom HTML and CSS, the back-end was supported by Squarespace's Developer platform.
After months of in-house design and off-shore development, the website was gifted to Day One and spotlighted at their annual banquet. The organization and its patrons were both excited by and grateful to Razorfish for committing the time to produce the site.
