Westridge School is an independent school for girls in grades 4-12 in Pasadena, CA . Like many nonprofits, they traditionally design a printed annual report every year, but in 2018 they decided to take their report entirely online (hooray for saving trees!).
Westridge’s priority was to personalize philanthropic impact, and wanted to include testimonials about the school collected from all of their primary constituencies. I needed to find a way to format dozens of quotes and images that wasn’t overwhelming for a viewer.
Additionally, Westridge provided me with lists of donor names (which had formerly taken up dozens of printed pages), and we needed a formatting solution that wouldn’t require a user to scroll endlessly to find their name in the report.
Student, parent, and alumnae testimonials were scattered throughout the website using Squarespace’s summary carousel block, which I custom-styled using CSS injection. The result was a beautiful, image-based layout that captures the eye without being distracting.
