Strathcona Food Bank

Web Design & Development

Celebrating 40 Years of Nourishing Our Local Community

We were very excited to have the opportunity to completely redesign the website for the Strathcona Food Bank, who celebrated 40 years of dedicated service to the residents of Strathcona County in 2023.

Websites like this have a lot of moving parts and special requirements, so the biggest challenge was to reimagine it in a way that was both visually pleasing/engaging and functional/practical for the wide range of users who depend on their services. We believe the final product achieves these goals while maintaining an inviting & inclusive experience and friendly, approachable aesthetic. Pops of bright colour in conjunction with simple, clean icons & graphic elements are used to highlight and navigate the user to important & useful information throughout the site. Modern interactive elements such as animated stat counters, revolving carousels, popups, and well-organized tabbed content & accordions help to present an otherwise overwhelming amount of content in an intuitive, easy-to-read manner, all while elevating the overall user experience.

A Fun & Fulfilling Challenge To Chew On

Projects for non-profit organizations are always fun & fulfilling and present some unique challenges, especially for ones that are well established and play a vital role in the community(no pressure at all)… and this was no exception!

Matthew Bennett

Graphic Designer & Animator

Hi I’m Matthew Bennett, a young graphic designer with a passion for digital art and animation. I love helping people take the ideas they have in their head and using my design knowledge to bring them to life. Outside of work I am a pretty easy-going guy who likes sleeping, drawing, and eating cheap wings by myself at the local bar.

Fun Fact About Me

I love martial arts animation

David Smith

Web & Graphic Designer

Hi my name is David, I originate from across the pond in the Mighty UK. When I’m not tapping away on a keyboard and staring into pixels, I like to work with my hands and butcher some wood, have a glass eye for amazing landscapes, wrestle with my rambunctious boys at home & occasionally mix it up on the Wheels of Steel. I love the constraints of design & thrive providing solutions to all kinds of problems, so challenge me… I dare you!

Fun Fact About Me

I met the queen, she is very small.

Nathan Labrecque

Web & Graphic Designer

Hey I’m Nathan, a graduate from MacEwan University’s Design & Digital Media Program with a passion for all forms of creative expression. Visual harmony invigorates me as much as its musical counterpart, and nothing floats my boat quite like a functional, intuitive, and tastefully designed digital experience… although cheesy catch-phrases and alliteration do come frighteningly close. When I’m not bending a plethora of pixels to my will, you’ll be sure to find me playing or listening to music, spending time with my wife & son, and sampling a tasty craft brew or two.

Fun Fact About Me

I spent a year living in Hollywood, California to attend music school for drum performance and if given the chance, I WILL talk your ear off about obscure progressive rock & metal bands.

Clark Park

Webmaster

As an obtainer of rare antiquities, I am enthusiastic about anything made in the ‘30s – ‘40s. When not in the office designing and coding for various projects, I can be found in remote jungles or lost cities looking for valuable treasures. In my down time, you just might spot me hovering around Edmonton fighting crime.

Fun Fact About Me

I worked as an illustrator for The Simpsons in South Korea before moving to Canada.
