American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee


Having already worked with designers at Terra Incognita to create a new website for the Archives of The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), months afterward we were approached to redesign the overall JDC Global website.

About the Website

In addition to a desire to update the existing interface, JDC wanted to accommodate a growing emphasis on service, donations, and to better integrate social media tools into the website. There was also a desire to create a site that worked well on mobile devices—tablets and smartphones. We were also asked to make the new website more appealing to a younger audience, while ensuring that more traditional website visitors could find the information they sought.

The interface of the JDC Global site uses responsive design principles—making generous use of spacing for buttons and tabs, so that they are touchable as well as clickable. The subtle color associations also allows the rich JDC photography to stand out and provide faces for the people who have been helped—or who help—JDC’s mission.

"The site is absolutely stunning, and is making waves already. We’ve done well together!" Jomai DeHaven, Director of Online Services, JDC
