Portfolio: Hindman Settlement School

Why They Called Makespace

Hindman Settlement School was making quite an impact in their region, but their old website didn’t reflect that. It was disorganized and some parts weren’t even functional. They needed a way to showcase the programs they offered while bringing a fresh twist to the story of their heritage.

Standard Website Base

Website Design

We created a website that was easy to navigate and clearly organized, with special callouts for programs and thoughtful links. And since Hindman Settlement School serves Central Appalachia through generous donations, we made it easy for people to find the programs they wanted to support and make a contribution.

Fully Responsive

When people need to find out about a program they’re enrolled in or an upcoming event, they should never have to struggle with an unresponsive site. So as always, this one was fully responsive to allow ease-of-use.

Interactive Timeline

Hindman Settlement School exists in a region overflowing with stories, and it was built on a rich history dating back to 1899. We created a beautiful and easy way to showcase the city and the school’s major milestones.

Case Studies

Hindman Settlement School supports their surrounding community in a lot of ways, and case studies allowed them to showcase the ways they’re helping to make life better for their neighbors.


With everything the school is involved in, a blog to keep people informed just made sense. Now news and updates can easily be shared across social platforms and around the community.

Staff Directory

One of the coolest things about the Settlement School is the staff and their diverse background. A stylized directory let us showcase the importance of each member of the team, no matter his or her role.

Newsletter Integration

For those who don’t want to miss out on any of the cool things going on at Hindman Settlement School, we created a newsletter integration tool so people could sign up and stay in the loop.

Services Landing Page

One of the challenges of working with such a dynamic school was showcasing the dozens of programs and offerings in a way that made sense and was easy to navigate. Our solution? Landing pages with a killer design and simple navigation.
