The Ask

When Elemental and Emerson Collective’s Elemental initiative rebranded as Elemental Excelerator, they needed a website that could communicate their mission and manage applications for their two funding tracks, with a quick turnaround before application season began.  They have since rebranded again, supported by the Mangrove team.

Our Solution

Mangrove worked with our design partners to create illustrated animations and colorful hover states that reflect the fun, sophisticated, and friendly nature of the EEx team. The new WordPress site brings to life the spirit of this energetic and inspiring nonprofit while providing essential backend functionality for its users and staff.

Mangrove has been one of the best website dev and design teams to work with. They were very quick to respond, flexible, and produced a website that looks and runs amazingly!Thanks for making the website design and development process so smooth and enjoyable! I can honestly say that the website has exceeded our expectations in terms of design, interactivity, and ease of use.
