An online hub for a community hub

Blackfen Community Library and Rooted Coffee House is much more than a library; providing a home away from home, a warm greeting and welcoming space for everyone. In addition, they offer activities for people of all ages each week. The library website had not been updated for some years and did not reflect the experience visitors to the library have.

The brief 

Blackfen Community Library tasked We Are Comma with completely overhauling the website to showcase all the activities provided, the services and support available, events and news.

The impact

We Are Comma gathered the required information to start rewriting the website. The design team then set about creating a more visually appealing site. We Are Comma also provided website training. The website has launched and helped Blackfen Community Library create an impact online. We Are Comma will also be going back to take photographs for the website when activities re-start after the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We are really pleased with the website. It much better reflects the variety of things we do and offer at Blackfen Community Library. Working with We Are Comma has been very easy, especially during lockdown and beyond. The team have given us lots of advice and help to make sure the site functions well and training on how to write for the web.”

Opening the City to young people

C4TY is a new youth focused, youth run organisation aimed at furthering the support available for young people living and studying within the City of London.

The brief 

Working in partnership with the City of London, we were challenged to develop a new name and identity for the London Youth Forum. This included the design of brochures and publicity material.

The impact

We implemented a series of Brand sprints and discovery sessions, which included the very people this brand is for, from the start.

 The young people had some amazing ideas and provided us a great starting point to develop an identity that was accessible to them but still conveyed a sense of leadership and support.

The impact of this approach was to deliver a result the young people felt invested in.
