Dorm Room Diplomacy is a start-up charity based in the US that gets university students around the world communicating. They approached Carbon Crayon to build an online presence that clearly states who they are and how they affect meaningful change in the world.

The Concept

With lots of content for a global audience and a young and dedicated client, we worked closely with them to create and deliver their vision for the website.
We scoped, planned and designed the most effective structure for inputting, displaying and sharing content and gave it a home n a gorgeous and welcoming website that offers users a clear and easy journey through its diverse content.

Student Login

A secure area for students to keep track of meetings and groups they are participating in.

DRD mobile

On the move (or in the bar)

Wherever students are and whatever device they are using, they can be sure they are provided with the most appropriate interface. Using responsive design techniques to adapt the website's layout to the size of screen being used means that students can access the website from any location with any device.

Dorm Room Diplomacy encourage great things from students in their programmes, and although we don't need much inspiration, they inspired us to do the same and then some.

I am SO glad we chose Carbon Crayon. They're incredibly responsive, easy to work with, and delivered a top-notch quality product. I can't imagine working with any other agency.
