Chicago Gateway Green helps to green and beautify the Chicago metro area through sustainable landscaping, litter removal, and native plantings on hundreds of acres along major transportation corridors. Their projects, sponsored by hundreds of local businesses and other organizations, help improve air quality, protect the water supply, and restore the natural beauty of Chicago and the surrounding area.
Silverline was introduced to Chicago Gateway Green during an ‘overnight website challenge’ to benefit Chicago-area non-profit organizations. Our team of eight had just 24 hours to meet and learn about our new client, then design and develop a complete website that meets their needs. Our solution helped to streamline their message by eliminating duplicate links and content, providing obvious calls to action, and creating greater awareness of their sponsors and partners who help make these projects a reality.
The new website is built on the WordPress platform, allowing the client to maintain program information, event details and sponsorship opportunities without the help of an outside developer. It’s also built to be responsive to different screen sizes, including tablets and mobile phones. The back end administration tools include drag-and-drop functionality to add sponsors, partners, and new gardens as map points on their customized Google expressway map.
In the end, Silverline beat out all eleven competitors for a gold medal at the event. You can visit the award-winning website at www.gatewaygreen.org.
