Identity and website redesign
826 Valencia is dedicated to supplementing the education of students ages 6-18, and to helping teachers get their students excited about the literary arts. The project goal was to both update the 826 Valencia identity and to build a site with an extensive back-end system for managing volunteers, workshops and students. The site was launched to rave reviews and has greatly improved the organization's ability to engage their audience.
"Eric and his team at Volume Inc have been incredible! So smart, so visionary, so talented, so professional. You really “get” 826 and have done a fantastic job of reflecting our character and priorities on every page. Thanks for being such a dream to work with."
Leigh Lehman, 826 Valencia executive director
"[The new site] looks FANTASTIC. I am bowled over by it. It is perfect, encapsulating everything that you do and stand for, both philosophically and aesthetically. Great job Team 826! Wow. I have to confess I've just written a long gushy email to the design co-op working on branding/designing my little start-up's logo and its website and have told them in no uncertain terms that I covet the look and style of your site. It must have been a huge project and I can't tell you how fantastic it is."
Eugenie Teasley, former 826 Valencia staff member
"Site looks great. People love it. You guys are the best."
Dave Eggers, founder of 826 Valencia
