Cheetah Conservation Fund

CCF is dedicated to saving cheetahs in the wild

Through Avidano Digital, I led the redesign of They needed a contemporary and responsive website that is both easy to update and maintain. My key responsibilities included:

  • Web design
  • Front-end development
  • WordPress development
  • Branding

Logo Refresh

CCF wished for a new logo to replace its outdated, photo-based logo. It was not scalable and did not work as a single color.

Because their logo was so recognizable, a complete redesign was not an option. Instead, I drew a simple vector version of the running cheetah. I also adjusted the type to make the logo feel more contemporary.

New Look and Feel

Working with CCF staff, we restructured the content across to make information easy to find with intuitive navigation in the header and footer. The homepage offers a hierarchy of featured content, up-to-date news, and videos.

I built the website with WordPress and Advanced Custom Fields (ACF). Website managers update and create content in a consistent way across the site. They select from a toolkit of layout components like full-width banners, galleries, figures, and video.

Mobile Optimized is optimized and readable for mobile viewports.

CCF Kids

The website has an area just for kids! It encourages children and parents to get involved with CCF. To make it stand out on the website, I created a special logo.

In addition to the CCF Kids logo, I created an entire font called Cheetah Tracks using Fontself. I used the web font on headers within the Kids section. CCF also uses the font for email and print communications.
