URBAN LEAGUE OF GREATER SAN FRANSICO BAY AREA

WELCOME  TO THE BLACK RENAISSANCE  2.0.

2021-2023

UL Bay Area wanted to update and refresh its digital aesthetic.

 

We aimed to find a modern approach to the historically known brand's design and display that aligns with the STEM industry for which the Bay Area is known.

 

We wanted to find a balance between the past and the present.

In 2021, Christopher Henderson-West participated in a brand strategy workshop facilitated by a colleague who had brought him on to design the website for the Bay Area Urban League. After completing the initial scope of work, HW & Company was asked to continue with long-term contracted services to implement the earlier proposed strategy.

Over the next three years, HW & Company updated the ULBA website, completed a full visual refresh, aligned digital aesthetics, improved targeted messaging, increased social following, and contracted a team of four professionals to optimize capacity impact.
