You may have noticed the CREATE! blog (and logo!) looks a little different than it used to. We are excited to announce the launch of our brand new website, designed by UplinkSpyder, Inc., a local web development firm based here in Eugene, OR. We are absolutely thrilled with the new design, and hope you like it too!

Since its inception in 2008, CREATE! has gone through a natural evolution of branding, as most organizations do. When we decided it was time for a makeover this year, we had some tough decisions to make. It was important to us to retain the spirit of our original design and mission, while also upgrading our web presence to reflect new advances in internet technology, aesthetics, and communications. Ultimately, we partnered with UplinkSpyder, Inc. We were so impressed with their other work and their ability to work so well with the needs of small nonprofits like our own. And indeed, they have truly gone above and beyond our expectations!

We wanted our new website to really highlight the gorgeous photos we have from our partner communities in Senegal. It was also important to us to focus on impact, successes, and all the positive energy that our team, donors, supporters, and beneficiaries put into CREATE!. We feel that UplinkSpyder, Inc. has done just that. We are especially excited to have our new website up and running in time for the holiday season here in the US, as we gear up for our fall fundraising campaign, and new initiatives that will take us into the new year!

With that, we invite you to explore the new website, check out our pages, and let us know what you think on Facebook or Twitter! We’d love to hear from you! Let’s start some conversations about climate change and poverty alleviation, and other ways that individuals and organizations are working to make our world a better place.
