Tilth Alliance website design

Tilth Alliance

Tilth Alliance works in community with Washington farmers, gardeners and eaters to build a sustainable, healthy and equitable food future. I’ve been fortunate to maintain a longtime partnership with this non-profit that’s dedicated to building a better food future.

Tilth Alliance was created in 2016 from the merger of Tilth Producers, Cascade Harvest Coalition and Seattle Tilth. Their mission, vision and scope of work has evolved along with the organization, however their website remained firmly planted in the 2000s. Working alongside Carkeek Studios, we were designed and developed a new website that promotes Tilth Alliance’s brand, tell their story, and supports their goal of building a better food future by engaging a larger online audience. Read more about requirements and features for this site below the live demo.

Project Details

Tilth Alliance has a wide range of programs and audiences and as an organization, it engages with these audiences in many different ways. We spent a lot of time dialing in the site architecture so that content can be navigated easily and discovered without a lot of digging around.

Functionality-wise, the site provides filterable class listings and youth programs with pricing tiers and online registration. In addition, you can make a donation, sign up as a volunteer, or purchase books, garden supplies or gift certificates (and apply those gift certificates to class registrations).

The website supports programs within the organization and directly engages with many staff members. Information that is collected through class registration and online sales integrates with Salesforce.

The website also became much more user-friendly and visually engaging. We designed custom web pages that support a wide range of content with an end goal of usability and readability. The Tilth Alliance brand is infused throughout the site and helps to solidify how they present themselves to their audience.

Custom Icons

Tilth Alliance custom icons

I illustrated a set of farm and food growing themed icons to use on the website that would round out text and photography. Icons were prepared for print use as well so that the organization can get more mileage with them.
