In December, Diamond + Branch began working with Samuel Tsoi to help launch a digital presence for Welcoming San Diego. We were super excited to be given this opportunity because we love everything Welcoming San Diego stands for, giving immigrants and refugees equal access to opportunities and economic success in San Diego County.
Our relationship started in early December 2017 and I worked around the clock to launch the website before the Welcoming San Diego Kick-Off Summit in early February 2018. I started off with creating a color palette and text logo that embodies San Diego’s characteristics and Welcoming San Diego’s vision. My goal was to develop a website experience for users that was positive, easy, and informative using simple but modern design, data provided by New American Economy, and clear calls to action to get involved, all while sprinkling in hints of San Diego!
The resulting responsive WordPress website was designed to inspire users to get educated on the impact of immigrants in San Diego County and to motivate everyone to get involved, either by subscribing to their newsletter, sharing ideas on how San Diego can better integrate immigrants and refugees, or attending a local event.
One of the many reasons we jumped at the opportunity to work with Welcoming San Diego is that our values aligned; we both “envision a vibrant, inclusive, and safe binational region that attracts families and businesses from around the world that all San Diegans can flourish in.” As our small agency grows, Diamond + Branch strives to create opportunities for individuals that encompass our same values and vision for this world!
I look forward to our continued relationship with Sam and Welcoming San Diego and can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for them!
