Kitsquad – Giving Old Gear a New Purpose

Kitsquad website screenshot

Kitsquad’s goal is to assist low-income people with getting out into the great outdoors to have awesome adventures. Kitsquad is the only UK based scheme that provides donated secondhand adventure gear to low-income individuals.

Richard was asked to create the website to give the new organisation a focal point. The client sourced photos and some of the text was copied from an existing successful Facebook page. The colour scheme was chosen to be bold but simple. A key element of the website was the contact form that allows visitors to make contact to provide donations and seek kit for their next adventure.
