HAWAII COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Amplify the Power of Giving
W|W designed & developed the integrated 2014, 2015 and 2016 Annual Reports and Centennial Campaign for the Hawaii Community Foundation, a philanthropic organization that helps donors in Hawaii make a difference by inspiring the spirit of giving and by investing in people and solutions to benefit every island community. W|W was asked to conduct a Brand Audit to help further develop the brand positioning and messaging as the organization was entering into its second century of giving. The annual report websites were developed using W|W CMS, a Ruby on Rails content management system, and integrated the use of Responsive Design to optimize the user experience for desktop, mobile & tablet devices.

The Foundation needed a gallery exhibit to celebrate their centennial year. The challenge was designing something modular, that could travel to five other events on three different islands, with each exhibit highlighting different combination of milestones and donors. The exhibit also needed to accommodate artwork commissioned especially for the exhibit, but which wouldn't be finished until the night before the event.
A central visual theme throughout all of our work for HCF is a rich color palette and vibrant, human-centered imagery. We partner with local photographers skilled in documentary-style photography, who can capture the natural warmth of the people that make up Hawaii's philanthropic community. The full spectrum of color and smiling faces conveys a sense of optimism and gratitude felt by everyone involved.
