Welcome to the new Refresh Pittsburgh website. As you can see, we not only have a new website but an entire new identity.
Our website was in need of a, well, refresh, for quite some time. In fact, our previous design was thrown together in a matter of a few days in anticipation of our first Refresh Pittsburgh meet-up almost 3 years ago. We’ve been adding to it with some digital duct-tape since then – spending more time on our meet-ups and other Refresh projects and badly neglecting our own website.
The new design/identity is courtesy of Gage Salzano. He did an amazing job. You can read more about his thought process and what else he came up with for us on a post at his own website. Gage recently moved to Chicago, but he’s going to continue helping us with additional identity work. Including some t-shirts and a 1 inch buttons!
There is still some fine-tuning to be done in some of the nooks & crannies of the new site, especially going over the old posts to make sure they fit. But we’re happy with how it turned out. If you run into any problems, feel free to shoot us an email and let us know.
