Survivors Of Suicide Loss (SOSL)

By Posted in - Recent Work on October 9th, 2013 1 Comments sosl

We’ve said it before, but one of our most favorite things to do is help nonprofits. Last month, we had the opportunity to help out a wonderful organization in San Diego called Survivors Of Suicide Loss (SOSL). Their mission is to create a safe and supportive place where people who have lost someone to suicide can go for help. They have a wonderful team behind the scenes and it was a pleasure working with them.

Stoke was asked to take their existing website and refresh the look. Their prior website used a color palate that wasn’t too welcoming. It also had a confusing UX for finding support groups, donating, creating quilts squares and buying books through Amazon in their bookstore. We started by creating a new color palate for their brand, and applying it to the entire website. We then went through each page and simplified the layout and gave a lot less whitespace to tighten up margins all around. We then used their existing platform for upcoming support groups, but changed how things were coded and displayed to make it easy for people in need of quick support to find what they are looking for, without having to get frustrated with searching. SOSL was already an Amazon Affiliate partner, so we utilized this by making a mini bookstore within their website, so people can shop for books without ever having to leave the SOSL website.

We are really excited for SOSL to have their new website live and are very supportive to them and what they are doing to help others. If you know someone who might benefit from their help, please send them over!

    I’ll let Lindsay and her teams work speak for itself. As webmaster and a board member of I want to add that Lindsay, my point person in the project, was incredibly easy to work with. We communicated via phone, email and Skype.

    I felt she was always available when I had a question but there was very little need for back and forth. She ‘got’ our mission, values and vision and shared our passion at getting the site designed well.

    We look forward to working with her as the website grows with ever-changing technology to serve our community
