The Metropolitan Center for Independent Living’s existing site was not welcoming or informative experience for visitors, something that was important to MCIL to provide. They tasked planet Claire with creating a new website experience as well as branding guidelines based on their existing logo.
Planet Claire created guidelines for both web and print as well as collateral pieces for the organization, including letterhead and business cards.
For the website design, we kept to a simple format to ensure it was a design that would translate well to an ADA-compliant, accessible website, while still feeling like a well-designed, welcoming website. We incorporated images and large color blocks to add personality, as well as design elements from our branding guidelines.
The Metropolitan Center for Independent Living (MCIL), works to empower members of the disability community to overcome barriers and discover access, choices, and the possibility to realize their goals and aspirations.
