When we design a nonprofit site, creating a responsive design is almost always a requirement. Going responsive just makes sense! It allows you to maintain a single website that renders appropriately on any device – from desktop computers to handheld devices.
Not only does responsive design make sense for your org’s main web presence, it makes sense for your peer-to-peer fundraising (P2P) websites too. Potential registrants and donors are very likely to visit your P2P site from a mobile device to find information about your event or campaign, register and donate. So what does responsive design for P2P look like?
As we worked with this terrific organization to create the site, we integrated the responsive design requirement throughout our entire process:
Even in the earliest stages of design, we were planning for responsive. We developed the wireframes using the Foundation HTML framework to show how the content and navigation should adapt at various screen widths.
2. Designs for each Break-point
During visual design, we treated each breakpoint individually to ensure we articulated the ideal look and feel for each screen size.
To maximize event participation, we ensured the find-a-walk and find-a-team search forms and search results were displayed appropriately on any device.
4. Registration and Donation Forms
Utilizing TeamRaiser’s responsive layout features, we styled the mission-critical event signup and donation forms to match the event’s new visual design.
5. Quality Assurance
During our thorough testing phase, we made sure to review the site from a variety of devices to ensure the responsive vision was achieved.
The end result is a peer-to-peer fundraising website that is beautiful, modern and best of all, usable from any device. If you’re redesigning one of your websites, be sure to think about going responsive to create an experience that is engaging on every screen.
