My Role: Senior Designer
The Team: Me, CEO, Program Directors, Teachers, Marketing, Designer & Volunteer Coordinator
The challenge: Design marketing materials to educate volunteers, donors and prospects and design classroom materials that were engaging to students ranging from young kids to teens. Project timelines would range.
My role & approach: I spearheaded the design work for New York. Working on intuitive ways to approach and educate volunteers, donors and prospects. I worked with another designer on various global design projects. I spoke to many different people in the organization including volunteers and students to understand their needs. And having had experienced the program first hand prior to joining gave me a lot of insights to be able to speak with others. I worked with our global team, working with Magento Inc. developing a student database so that we could collect quantitative and qualitative data to help measure our students success. I created a training manual for the database that would help onboard staff and volunteers, as well as others manuals.
The impact: I learned what type of designs worked for young kids and teens very quickly, as I was in the classrooms with them. I also got feedback from other SFK locations that would help dictate changes as we were a global organization and localization varied. The training manuals I created specifically for NYC often became global manuals as they made volunteer's experiences better. And the database manual was a very important part for tracking our students around the world–to help prove the program's success and achieve our big goal of entering the education system in various countries. Giving kids and teens skills that weren’t being focused on in most schools around the world. This not only impacted the students, but also their families. A study was done by the RAND corporation that shows the positive impact that SFK has on its students over similar programs.
