What did Zena need?
How Josh helped.
I thought the idea behind ThankWell was brilliant and extremely timely. Zena wanted a homepage for Thankwell that would quickly tell people what the platform was for, and encourage them to sign up. We also needed to create a logo that would be recognisable throughout the site.
Zena already had a really clear idea on colour schemes and an overall feel that the brand needed to have, so we were quickly able to design the logo. Zena provided me with mood boards and some early stage designs she had previously had help with. Using that I created a homepage and after a few tweaks we had a finished product.
This was a great project for me as I’m relatively new to the world of design, so having such an interesting cause to work with was a real joy. I’ve been using a lot of what I learnt on this project on our own Make Good Grow site.

How do we calculate the value of a project?
We use the replacement-cost approach when valuing our projects. This means we use an estimate for the cost that would be incurred by the charity if they paid for someone to complete a project. This is not a perfect method, as many projects would simply not go ahead without the work of the volunteers.
We are always reviewing our methods of calculating value and hope to soon be able to give a richer view of the true value of volunteers.
