Design Spotlight: The Kikulu Foundation

The Kikulu Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on global education.

The word Kikulu means "It's Important" in Lusoga, a regional dialect in Uganda. The Kikulu foundation believes the most valuable practice in creating lasting change is by investing in people.

When Alisha reached out about her website, I was honored to have the opportunity to work with her. This foundation is so close to her heart and it was such a special project for me. I can’t wait to share it.

Step One | Wireframe

Alisha reached out in need of a website refresh. She wanted to make her website more user-friendly, legible and mobile-friendly.

With those primary goals in mind, I got to work on creating wireframes for us to work off of. A wireframe is a visual guide that represents the skeletal framework of a website. Think of it as the bare bones of your website.

Wireframes are a great way for me to organize my ideas, understand the content that will be included and take a big picture look at the overall flow of the website.

This also is a quick and simple way for me to ensure I am on the same page with my client. I send the wireframes off to ensure the flow makes sense, I’m not missing any content and that they approve of the design direction. and Once they are approved we can dive into the website.

Step Two | Cover Page

Before I start working on the website, I create a cover page.

The cover page allows me to work on the backend of the website, without someone stumbling across my work.

This was the cover page I designed for The Kikulu Foundation, It put an emphasis on donating to their cause and kept the information minimal.

Step Three | Home Page

While the cover page was live, I began working on the homepage.

I start with the homepage because it is the most important page of the website and allows me to focus the most energy into it’s design. Additionally, once I have the homepage created, I have a better understanding of how the rest of the website will look. It’s a great jumping off point.

Step Four | Remaining Pages + Launch

Once the homepage was approved, we moved onto building out the remaining pages. These pages include:

  • About Page

  • Board of Directors Page

  • Why Education

  • Get Involved

  • Become a Company Partner


When the remaining pages were approved. We did a thorough walk-through of the website to ensure all pages and links were displaying correctly.

Last, we launched the new website! Take a look at the refreshed website in action at www.kikulu.org
