New Responsive Website for Community Foundation of Whistler

Today, we are very excited to announce the launch of the new Community Foundation of Whistler website. The Community Foundation of Whistler is a wonderful local organization that manages donations as long term investments in the community, supporting grants and local charities year after year. 

Design Discussion

We were thrilled when CFoW approached us a while ago to get them going on their brand realignment. We held some big discussions about their values and their new audience base. They were looking for something truly fresh and energized, something vibrant and reflective of the Whistler community. It was nice to get a clear direction that wasn't merely "clean" (my pet peeve). We really got to know the organization, and understanding what it is exactly that makes them tick.

Mobile First

The site is built responsively, meaning it looks good on any device you choose to view it on. Responsive web design is the new default for websites -- if it's not responsive, it ain't good enough. But to further this idea, we built the site mobile first: we started small, emphasizing content, linear navigation, and on collapsing or otherwise toggle less important information. As our browsers got bigger, we added more features, more decoration, more spiffy twirling doodads. But we always built on top of the basic structure set in the beginning.

So How Could We Make This Site Better?

The Community Foundation of Whistler is a fantastic group, and we are so pleased they chose Custom Fit Online to help them get their feet on the ground. We enjoyed the challenges and the process of the new site. But we don't work in a vacuum; view the new site at and let us know what you think. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about the new site, please feel free to leave them below.
