A responsive site for the world's first responders


The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and have helped millions of people rebuild lives shattered by conflict, disaster and poverty. Being one of the world’s most respected charities I was honoured to help out.

Where IRC previously had a variety of sites that lacked a clear and cohesive voice, the new site was needed to act as the central hub for promoting the many programs and initiatives run by IRC across the globe to a wider audience and demographic.

Website Design


The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and have helped millions of people rebuild lives shattered by conflict, disaster and poverty. 

As one of the world’s leading humanitarian organisations, IRC has a rich history of thought leadership in the field. Their previous site however, did not adequately present this legacy. High quality resources were often buried deep within the information architecture, not given adequate prominence, and weren’t always used in a way that created an emotional connection with visitors. As a result, IRC as a whole lacked a compelling brand narrative online.

One of the goals of the new design was to emotionally engage visitors and deepen their connection with IRC’s beneficiaries, staff, and ultimately IRC itself.

The website in 'Crisis Mode'

This project was also about rethinking how it can ensure that crucial data/news/info is available to relevant reporters and News organisations.

The strategy for doing this was twofold: first, by simplifying the information architecture of the site so that visitors can quickly find the information they want whether it be a current crisis, country based program, or a higher level topic. Secondly, we created templates that would allow IRC to provide up-to-date crisis reporting: rich data visualisations, live stats from the ground, and interactive maps can be incorporated into IRC’s comprehensive analysis to magnify its influence.

The refreshed site serves as a platform from which IRC can increase its profile and cement its position as a thought leader in the field.
