We did the design and user experience (UX) work for these projects

Education Africa

Education Africa is a global organization that receives donations from every corner of the world. The Education Africa team wanted to give site visitors an easy way to donate from anywhere, at any time. One of our partners, Singlebrook, built a donor management app using Ruby on Rails, and O8SB (our East Coast division of Origin Eight) provided Education Africa with a beautiful new design that is responsive for mobile users and is built on WordPress for easy content editing.
