The Refugee Empowerment Center is aÂ community-based, Nebraska 501c3, non-profit organization aimed at resettling and empowering refugees to become self-sufficient through direct services and educational programs.
After deciding on a complete overhaul of their brand identity and supporting materials, Milk & Sugar Design was commissioned to deliver a new website that fit their new voice and identity created by Oxide Design, Omaha, Nebraska.
The design brief was simple, design and build a completely new website that not only fit their newly acquired brand, but also made using the website easy for both US and non-US users.
Designed through WordPress, the new website is not only extremely easy for both refugees and non-refugees to use, but also has the capability for the staff to update regularly changing information at a moment’s notice. The website is also responsive across all web media with pin-pointed search engine optimization.
