Transforming the Lives of Children Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
The Foundation for Hearing Research needed a robust, custom-built site. As an umbrella organization, they needed virtual real-estate to elaborate on the four programs they run and an easy way for families to enroll in these programs. They also needed to provide information and resources to families of deaf and hard of hearing children.
Web Design
For 56 years, the Foundation for Hearing Research has been transforming the lives of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Through their four programs, they teach children to listen, speak, and learn using a proven spoken language and cognitive development curriculum, family-centered education, and innovative technology.
Logo & Colors

Despite the popularity of the Weingarten Children’s Center, the programs and parent foundation lacked a visual identity. We walked them through our branding process, exploring different logos and typography. This resulted in logos for each of the programs and the parent foundation.


With the logos made, we had the foundation for creating a branding system. Utilizing the color palette from previous sub brands, we were able to establish a strong visual identity to be carried throughout the organization. This resulted in a playful and childlike aesthetic that appeals to families of young children.

Client Testimonials
Testimonials are a powerful way to build trust with potential clients. Families want to ensure their children will be taken care of in a high-quality program that’s both safe and effective. Hearing good stories about the Foundation from other families lets them know they can expect positive results. Using this new branding system, we were able to showcase these testimonials in a fun and engaging way.
The Weingarten Children’s Center operates as a school and clinic in Redwood City, California that uses a cognitive curriculum to teach LSL in conjunction with observation, reasoning, and social and emotional development. They have various events throughout the year and it was imperative to be able to showcase those in a functional and easy-to-use way. We added in a calendar so families could see everything at a glance and plan accordingly.
History Slider
The Weingarten Children’s Center was founded in 1967 by eight families that believed their children with profound deafness could listen, speak, and learn. With 55 years of experience under their belt, they know what they’re doing. We had to showcase this rich history to build trust amongst users. We created an interactive timeline to visually convey milestones in the Foundation’s history.
Non profit organizations rely on donations from generous donors who value the organization’s mission. The Foundation is no exception. Therefore it was imperative that we create a donation page. Utilizing the color palette and beautiful imagery of children, we created a playful yet clear way for people to donate and get involved.
Let's work together to bring your vision to life.
