We partnered with Global Citizen to conceive, design, and build a new responsive, content-focused website. We paired content to action to both inform users and give them a vehicle to initiate change.

We partnered with Global Citizen over the course of 6 months to rethink their digital presence and engage users on a global scale. Together, we created a platform available in four different languages that allows users to take informed action on global poverty issues.

  • Product Design

    Global Citizen is a non-profit organization with the mission to end extreme poverty by 2030. To achieve its objective, Global Citizen needed to reinvent how it engaged digital users. We helped build their digital presence from the ground up by leading a Design Sprint and creating a User Experience & Interface solution with informed action at its core.

  • Application Development

    We then created a customized admin interface for Global Citizen using Django CMS to improve the non-profit's internal workflow. The new admin allowed staff members to work more efficiently, creating a surge in user engagement and web traffic.

  • Dev Ops and Training

    After the initial build and launch, Lightmatter implemented a robust hosting and autoscaling system to effectively manage increased traffic. We also interviewed, vetted and trained Global Citizen's new development team to manage and grow their platform.
