Foodbank NSW website launchedMay 30, 2013
A new web presence has just launched for Foodbank New South Wales, a logistics supplier for hundreds of charities and community groups which feed hungry families and individuals throughout the state and the ACT.
The original website strategy was conceived by advertising agency Euro RSCG (now Havas Worldwide), and the design was a result of a close collaboration with Digital Tsunami and the client.
Digital Tsunami developed a sophisticated web presence for the national organisation Foodbank in Australia, which is being progressively deployed for each of the associated state and territory Foodbanks.
The website features full-screen vectored background images, donation forms with secure e.commerce, dynamic statistics, integrated videos, archived publications and hierarchical access to the easy-to-use WordPress content management system (CMS).
Based in Wetherill Park, Foodbank NSW is currently suffering from its own success. As a conduit between food producers and 470 charitable organisations which feed the hungry, the distribution centre is rapidly exhausting its storage capacity. Foodbank NSW is now seeking state government and corporate support to build a new and much larger distribution centre.
Since the start of 2000, Digital Tsunami has supported Foodbank in Australia on a pro-bono basis, as a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative. This support has included the development, hosting and technical support of web presence at national and state levels.
From Our Clients
.. very knowledgeable, creative and patient while also pushing me to work through the many decisions such a project involves.
Thank you for the development of an updated brand image for Wah Yuet in China.
While originally contracted to produce a video highlighting Wah Yuet's manufacturing capabilities, it was apparent very quickly that your understanding of our requirements, combined with your experience, were the perfect fit to create a new logo and style guidelines for the company. While relatively small in scope, you were dedicated to the success of the project and I am pleased to say that you hit the bullseye!
The services provided included the registration of our domain name, establishment of our email accounts, and development & hosting of our website, were all executed rapidly and effectively. We also appreciate the service of upgrading our list of 150 shelf company names (in Chinese characters and English) every 2 weeks.
We valued the high level of creative design provided by Digital Tsunami, both for the website and the corporate identity.
Andrew helped us to see the potential of video in bringing our new website to life.
He held our hand through the process, making it as undaunting as possible.
He delivered a great selection of videos (from a one-day shoot), that really tell the Foodbank story and will be a great addition to our communications.
We were very happy with the development process and the outcome. The objectives have all been achieved, in terms of usability and ease of use in updating the site. You definitely nailed both of these.
