Rainier Hotel

Agency: MakeYear: 2013Role: Designer, Web DeveloperView website
The Rainier Hotel is a non-profit organization in helping women who are struggling with their addictions. Based in Vancouver, The Rainier Hotel stepped in to help women get off the streets by providing them shelter and a variety of programs for them to learn skills in the workforce. These programs help them ease their mind off their addictions.

In 2013, the government cut off The Rainier Hotel's financial support. Make wanted to help, The Rainier Hotel, raise awareness in the city of Vancouver.
During my time at Make, I was the web designer and developer for this project.

The site features videos and testimonials of the women of The Rainier Hotel and how it has helped them with their recovery. Each 30 second video clip, contains a motion .gif as an intro before displaying the video.

Scrolling down the site, it reveals infographics and facts about the program in a parallax effect and how to support the program.
