Idaho Youth Ranch

For more than 50 years the Idaho Youth Ranch has served Idaho's troubled children and their families. Adoption services are just one of the many services and programs they provide. As one of the state's largest non-profit adoption agencies, the Youth Ranch provides help to people on both sides of the adoption process.

Description //

The Youth Ranch needed a separate marketing website dedicated to their adoption program. As the adoption process is considerably emotional, we designed a site that communicated information in a very simple and organized way. Plainspoken prompts set in large type over brightly colored backgrounds provide comfort during an otherwise difficult process.
