The badly-designed site I chose to redesign for this exercise was the Reachire (http://reachire.ca/) non-profit job centre/board. The task executed in this redesign is to, as a new employer, register and submit a job posting.
The companies mission is to attract qualified and interested applicants to work for non-profit companies. The current version of the site does not send the right message when it comes to the kind of benefits that a non-profit career could encompass. The grey-scale colour choices portrays mundanity and the repetition of links gives the impression of unthoughtful design.
The redesign below focuses on the different tasks that a user could perform by minimizing the number of links on the page to only what is necessary. This minimal design illustrates deliberate and thoughtful work, something that should appeal to a candidate looking for non-profit work. The links are intended to be a bright blue and pink to match the logo (consistency in branding). This will bring recognition to the brand and assist in exciting potential candidates in the possibility of a non-profit career.
