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.
Web Design That Converts
Origin Eight developed this site to leverage the full capacity of multiple databases to combine information and present a powerful, yet easy-to-use search experience.
Plant Information Online offers a collection of databases of interest to plant and gardening enthusiasts and students, as well as professional botanists, horticulturists, and researchers. Some of the databases have been available in print (various titles) since 1979 and online through paid subscription since 1997. The whole site is now available free to the general public.

About Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice
Our team led multiple facilitation sessions to produce a content strategy foundation; an internal tool which describes the client's motivations and intentions for using their website to achieve business goals.
This practice includes a core strategy statement and a set of guiding principles detailing the approach to the website's content and user experience. With this foundation in hand, we then proceeded to craft wireframes and lay the groundwork for the website's user experience.
Origin Eight developed two visually appealing Drupal 8 websites for a canoe and kayak paddle manufacturer's brands: bendingbranches.com, featured here, and aquabound.com. Both sites were built for an eCommerce phase-in. Our work included a fully-responsive design, mega menu implementation, integration of an external dealer locator, and content migration from a legacy site. Web traffic from organic search jumped significantly with the launch of the new site.
