African Water Facility

The Brief

The African Water Facility (AWF) provides grants and expert technical assistance to implement innovative water projects and raise investment for water projects throughout Africa.

Their existing site needed a total overhaul and the goal for the new site was to make access to information on grant application and eligibly much easier. It also needed to showcase the positive effect of the projects they helped to fund.

The Challenge

As with all website for African NGOs, clarity and page load are very real considerations. We needed to make the site as engaging as possible but be economical with the usage if images to keep the page load file size low.

The Result

The new AWF website is a clean and clear, multilingual information resource that is mobile responsive as well as supported by older browsers that are still widely used in Africa. The website's design employs a minimal use of colour and imagery to bring a touch of vibrancy to an otherwise academic look. Bold icons are used to create effective way finding, which point users to key grant application information.
