We’re excited to show off our latest launch, a new website for Bartow Against Drugs! It’s a great nonprofit that works with local high school-aged kids, encouraging them to avoid drugs and alcohol and other potentially harmful behaviors.

When they came to us, they had a couple of problems to solve: their website was broken, and they needed to share resources with their target audiences. This includes kids, their parents, and community members looking for drug & alcohol information related to Bartow County.

Can we design a website for you that speaks to your audiences and meets your specific needs? Let’s talk about how to get started.

BAD’s leadership wanted their new website to appeal to teens, but didn’t want to come across as disingenuous. After all, these kids hold leadership positions within many of BAD’s programs.

With this in mind, we designed a site with bright colors, interesting flourishes, and warm pictures of young people, but kept the overall look professional.

One of the main requirements of the site was to display information from their school and community surveys. It would have been easy to take a screenshot of an Excel chart and embed it on the page, but that causes accessibility issues for people who can’t view that image. So, we added tools that allow BAD staff members to create interactive, easy-to-read online charts for data like alcohol use, perceived risk of marijuana and more.

Another priority for BAD is the ability for people to easily take their anti-drug pledge via text message. If you visit that page on your phone and tap the pledge buttons, your phone will automatically compose the appropriate message and all you have to do is hit send!

“Creating a new website felt a bit overwhelming at first, but the team from Romega Digital made the process manageable and smooth!!! We love the finished product and how easy they made it to customize the site for our needs. I would definitely recommend these guys!”

– Scott Sherwin, Bartow Against Drugs

The team at Bartow Against Drugs was a dream to work with, and we hope this new website helps them as they work to improve the lives of area youth. If you want to keep up with BAD and their initiatives, you can visit them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
