This project was a WordPress website redesign & development for Healthy Aging NC, a project of the North Carolina Center for Health and Wellness (NCCHW) at UNC Asheville. The mission of Healthy Aging NC is to be a leader and trusted partner to help North Carolina older adults and adults with disability meet the challenges of aging. They partner with nonprofit organizations, government, and businesses to provide innovative community programs and services, including Evidence-Based Programs in the areas of Fall Prevention and Chronic Disease Self Management.

Among other goals, AndiSites focused on creating a new logo, branding, and website design that communicated Healthy Aging NC’s positivity and energy. Instead of stereotypical images and messages associated with aging (e.g., rocking chairs and hourglasses), we expressed health, safety, and longevity through vibrant color, curved design elements, and lively imagery. Then we made sure that the site was user-friendly and promoted workshops that are easy to find and easy to sign up for.

MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals. Judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talents exceed a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. The Gold Award is presented to those entries judged to exceed the high standards of the industry norm.

As part of its mission, AMCP fosters and supports the efforts of creative professionals who contribute their unique talents to public service and charitable organizations, including homeless shelters, orphanages, day camps, community theaters and art centers; and for programs for the elderly and disabled; childcare; and educational endeavors for the underprivileged.
