Websites

The First Nations Technology Council's website provides information about projects, training programs, news, and events. We've designed it to be user-friendly, with a clear navigation system that supports digital literacy and connectivity initiatives.

The Digital Skills Training Programs section offers courses from basic computer skills to advanced tech careers designed for Indigenous learners by Indigenous trainers. The website also includes contact details, annual reports, and donation options, making it easy for visitors to get involved.

Brand Development

We created a brand guide for the First Nations Technology Council using their existing logo and brand colours. This guide includes instructions for logo spacing, logo variants in black and white, a logo for social media profiles, fonts for the logo, print, and web, and colours for all deliverables. The brand guide helps ensure that all FNTC information is presented consistently and professionally and encourages brand recognition across all platforms.

Hosting

With Saltmedia, FNTC’s website security, speed, and functionality are a priority. Our hosting service includes monthly site inspections, hassle-free software updates, daily backups, and continuous monitoring. We uphold data sovereignty, storing their data securely within Canada through our two private data centers with top-tier redundancy systems.

Graphic Design

Loakin needed a logo that told their brand story and identified them as an Indigenous business. The final result incorporated their original colours, added beading and dot work, included one of the client’s favourite herbs, and added a sweet character making the journey ‘up the hill’.

The new logo was incorporated into the website refresh, new package designs, labels, and shipping box design, and a year’s worth of social media graphics that the client can adapt for a variety of purposes. We also designed a new brochure and sell sheet, and provided the client with QR codes that will be especially helpful during her many in-person events and conferences.

About

The First Nations Technology Council (FNTC) is an Indigenous-led non-profit in British Columbia. They focus on improving digital literacy, internet connectivity, research, and data and digital technological support for the province's 204 First Nations and all Indigenous adults.

Challenge

Our team needed to address diverse accessibility needs, ensure cultural relevance, and integrate comprehensive information about FNTC’s programs and services. Developing the Digital Skills Training Programs section required balancing technical functionality with managing and updating the content.

Insight

We found that the Information Architecture needed revision for easy navigation, the site needed to move to only one CMS installation, the subdomains needed to be removed, and the overall information design needed updating. It was also time for a branding update for consistency and brand recognition.

Results

The new First Nations Technology Council website is a busy site! Visitors can easily access a variety of relevant information and resources. They are inspired by FNTC’s commitment to Indigenous digital leadership, and everyone is invited to succeed through Indigenous-designed technology training.
