Public Lands Alliance Convention and Trade Show



Launch Date: July 2017

Working with The Public Lands Alliance

GrowHappy Designs Founder, Amanda Keith, works full-time at a nonprofit in the Greater D.C. Area. The Public Lands Alliance is a national organization and provides education and resources to the public lands nonprofit partner community.

Each year, this organization hosts a convention and trade show and brings more than 500 public lands professionals together to learn, network, and shop trade show products and services for the benefit of public lands.

What this work involved

This website needed to serve the role of marketing and information sharing. The destination of the event in Palm Springs, CA, helped inspire the different elements of the website. As staff, Amanda worked with her team members and outside designers to create this website. She took on the main role of designing the layout, developing the content, and identifying photos, fonts and web-design elements to make this a compelling site.

Friends of the Mahoning River


Launch Date: December 2016

Working with Friends of the Mahoning River

Friends of the Mahoning River is a nonprofit in northeast Ohio that advocates to improve the quality of the Mahoning River through education, restoration, and recreation. This all-volunteer nonprofit knew they needed to have an online presence but didn’t know where to start or how to make sure they still had time to focus on their programs and on-the-ground activities.

What this work involved

GrowHappy Designs worked with their Board of Directors to build the website, develop content and train their leadership on how to update the site. GrowHappy Designs also provides ongoing services to this nonprofit to make sure their website stays current, while they’re able to focus on the great work they do for the river.
