BLKDOG worked with Ocean Allies in Clearwater Florida, to rebuild its web presence. As the organization grows, and adds members to its list of certified businesses, it is important to have a portal online for both businesses and volunteers. Through a redesign of the site map, updated and re-written content, as well as better, more robust functionality in place, the organization is able to update its audience, raise capital funds through online donations, and provide tourists with a way to locate OA-approved businesses. As they expand their impact through other coastal communities, the site will be able to adapt and grow per the organization’s ever-changing needs.

Ocean Allies came about from an initial meeting of concerned community members of Clearwater Beach, Florida, home of the #1 beach in the country (Trip Advisor).
The need to expand the efforts of Ocean Allies became apparent and their team quickly developed initiatives in communities around the Tampa Bay region.
OA’s vision at first was concentrated on Clearwater Beach due to its proximity to the water and the fact that it receives so many visitors each year from around the world.

Where can I give 6 stars? I cannot say enough good things about the process of working with BLKDOG designs. From conceptualization through creation to launch, this team made the process easy to understand, was very responsive, and launched a new website, along with branded assets, that have completely elevated our brand. Additionally, the team working on it on the client side were all volunteers at this non-profit, so they were incredibly patient with timelines and deliverables. I would, without an ounce of hesitation, recommend BLKDOG
