Triangle Resiliency Collaborative


Triangle Resiliency Collaborative is a new non-profit organization that needed a website to house information about the organization, registration for their events, and a small clearinghouse of research, information, and resources for resiliency and the Community Resiliency Model®. After designing their logo (see logo gallery here), I worked with the TRC board to determine their goals for the site and necessary functions (including an event calendar and a Speakers Bureau search function - still upcoming). We also discussed how the organization might grow in the future in order to make sure the site will continue to work for them. I guided the TRC team through a process to organize the site content into sections and pages that made the most sense for all site visitors, whether new to the topic area or well-versed in the subject. 

Subsequent to the first phase of our web project, I helped TRC develop event registration and purchase capabilities for their site, utilizing Squarespace's commerce options to create a system that met their needs.

This site features custom icons, a scrolling index homepage, and custom-coded main page header, along with an event calendar and event registration/payment capacities, resources pages, and contact page. Additional content is coming soon, including a searchable speakers bureau function.

NOTE: TRC has since changed their name to “The Resiliency Collaborative.” I also handled updating their logo, website, and all technical backend changes to accomplish their name change (e.g., URL, email server, etc.).


"Bowen Close did an amazing job on our new nonprofit website! I actually like it better than all the other websites I’ve worked on in my career—she’s got so much talent—and an eye for design and detail. She seems to understand intuitively aspects of design that can’t be taught. Could not recommend her more highly!"

"Bowen Close was so wonderful to work with on the creation of a website and branding for our non-profit! She really took the time and care to hear our vision and mission and applied that beautifully in her design work. She is detailed, responsive, and goes above and beyond. She was made a task that seemed big so painless and enjoyable! I highly recommend Bowen!"
