A new modern website for the historic Hutton Settlement

Testing subtitle.
Dec 13, 2016

Hutton Settlement was founded by Levi Hutton. Levi was orphaned at the age of 6. As a child, Levi never found a feeling of belonging. He was passed amongst relatives and never fully settled in at any single home. At 18 he headed west to find his fortune and he was very successful at doing so. While he attained much business success, Levi’s dream was to build a home for children. He wanted to create a true “home,” not an institution. A secure place where families could stay together and not be shifted about. In 1919 his dream became a reality when Hutton Settlement was born.

For nearly a century, Hutton Settlement has provided the stability that is difficult to achieve in short-term foster care. Hutton Settlement provides safe and healthy living opportunities for children ages 5 to 18 in need of a long-term alternative home. The historic campus consists of four large homes, supported by 319 acres of pristine natural settings with opportunities for learning and recreation;  a beautiful location filled with fun and learning opportunities for the children that call Hutton Settlement home.  

The beauty of the campus is partly what inspired a website redesign.  The staff and board of directors felt the website could better represent the beauty and friendly nature of the campus. Zipline Interactive was selected to re-imagine the online experience to better blend with the mission, vision, and direction of the organization. After a careful review of the existing website, branding components, and website traffic patterns, our team developed a brand new site structure engineered to better meet the needs of all target audiences. The new website showcases the beauty of the Hutton Settlement campus while making it quick and easy for website visitors to find the information they’re looking for. We have integrated a number of strategic funnels for audiences ranging from parents to donors. We have also provided a suite of new publishing tools that make the website easier to update and maintain.
