Social Impact Project for Web Design Experteer to Create a B2B website for a Social Enterprise
Project Description and Impact
2nd Innings Handicrafts (2IH) is the parent company of I was a Sari (flagship brand), both based in Mumbai. 2nd Innings is a legal entity/a social enterprise, and I was a Sari is a brand. Both support, train, and hire women in India from marginalized communities. By working with NGOs that offer an extensive training program, the women become genuine artisans proficient in stitching, embroidery, and design, gaining life-long skills. At 2IH and its brands, 100% of all profits go directly back into the companies.
With the impact from COVID in India, 2IH is currently focusing on growing its revenues from other businesses (B2B sales) with high quality white labeling, gifts, and other stitched products (Gucci is a current partner) using raw materials, ethically produced items, and using sustainable, fair trade practices.
2IH is looking for someone who can quickly design a simple, direct, effective B2B website design in conjunction with a design for our presentation pitch deck. Professional imagery and text are provided so we're looking for someone with a creative, forward-thinking, aesthetic who can think and act as the graphic design lead on both of these, and who shares our values and desire to showcase the story and quality work done by empowering women in marginalized communities to learn new skills, use ethical sourcing of materials, and creating sustainable products to grow these businesses.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.
This project accepts virtual experteers.
