United Breast Cancer Foundation • Nonprofit
Hope for Every Woman
The United Breast Cancer Foundation makes a huge impact on thousands of lives every year with its services that support those fighting breast cancer. We wanted to make sure their website made these services as accessible as possible.
Web Design
Working with nonprofits that have a strong mission is important to us. United Breast Cancer Foundation’s work is devoted to helping the people and families impacted by breast cancer. They do this by offering a wide array of services that range from scholarships to mattress donations. In order for UBCF to continue to expand to reach as many people as possible, they needed a new website with which they could more robustly display their services, making information, applications, and sign-ups more accessible to their users. They partnered with side • sea to create a website that both educates and provides valuable resources to those who need their support.
Pink Ribbon-Inspired Design

The “Pink Ribbon” is such an important and recognizable symbol for breast cancer awareness, it felt like a no-brainer to both the client and the side • sea team that we should use the ribbon as the starting point and foundation of the design. It not only informed the color palette but also appeared throughout the site as a design flourish, helping tie together a cohesive and branded aesthetic. 

A Calming Color Palette

Starting with the bright pink of the breast cancer ribbon, our design team began to build a color palette. We offset the pink with a calming and harmonious cornflower blue, and used a liberal amount of white space to create a super clean, modern feel to the site that focused the attention on the content and didn’t distract from the amazing work UBCF is doing. 

Find Your Service
The most important part of the UBCF website is their services, which is the heart of what they do. On their services page, we created a clean grid of the nine programs they offer. A user can click on a specific tile to be directed to an interior page to learn more.
Creating a Robust Template
When a user clicks into a specific service, they’re taken to a robust interior page that allows the user to read more about the service and take any action required to receive that service. We created a robust template for each of these pages that could cover a large array of different content sections and calls-to-action, ensuring that each service interior accomplished its intended goal.
Hopsie Integration
As with most nonprofits, the ability to donate on-site is a must. We integrated our proprietary fundraising platform, Hopsie, and our design team created a branded, easy-to-use donation widget that lets users easily get started on the donation process.
Getting the Community Involved
Another super important part of UBCF’s website is their Get Involved page. For users who have already donated, or who aren’t ready to donate, it’s important to showcase other ways potential supporters can get involved. UBCF allows users to opt into different levels of membership, so we designed this tiered system that spells out the perks of each membership.
Keeping the Community Informed
A blog page holds all the latest news and information coming from UBCF. Because the organization puts on multiple events throughout the year, it’s important that they have a space to feature their upcoming fundraisers and drives. UBCF’s blog acts as a News & Events feed that pulls in across various pages. Users can go to the blog index to browse through all published posts.
Let's work together to bring your vision to life.
