How We Built It:

The Center on Race Poverty & The Environment 



Meraki Creative had the pleasure of working with The Center on Race Poverty & The Environment (CRPE) on their complete website redesign.

Wanting a fresh start and tighter security following a hacking, we worked together to:

  • Develop a strong brand identity.
  • Integrate social medias, news, and updates
  • Provide easily digestible information and resources to both the community and potential donors.
  • Implement security features and backups.
  • Train and empower staff the continue to make updates to the site.

"Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment believes all people regardless of race, income or location deserve to live, work & play in a safe & clean environment."


Phase 1.

Planning & Strategy

CRPE has a long standing reputation among the non-profit community in the Bay Area and beyond as an organization that fights hard for the.  Knowing this, it was important for us to work together to establish a look and feel that represented the issues they work so tirelessly for, the environment and community.

After taking the time to get to know the organization and the community they serve, we created a custom styleguide website so that they could get to see the look and feel of potential color/typography palettes in action.


Phase 2.

Design and Development


With the branding completed, it was time to bring together CRPE's new look with the rich content they had created to help keep everyone up to date on the great work they are doing.  We worked together to develop the perfect sitemap, then created page designs for all of the key components.

The results were spectacular!


Phase 3.

Test & Delivery

It's important to us that we set all of our clients up for success. So before we release your website to the public we do extensive testing with the clients to ensure that everyone is happy with the product, and we've worked out any kinks or bugs that might show up.

Additionally we empower our clients with the knowledge they need to continue the work of updating their website as needs arise in the future. With CRPE we met for in-person trainings and made a series of custom tutorial videos to walk them through some common actions they might need to take.

Phase 4.


Following the successful site launch, clients are given the option to receive our continued support in such things as:

  • Hosting
  • Content changes
  • Website security
  • Backup Management
  • Additional changes
  • And more...
