"Orbis's newly redesigned website is an incredible asset to amplify our voice using our new brand identity," said Jennifer Gregoire, Orbis Chief Marketing Officer. "Our redesigned online presence will not only help us raise awareness about avoidable blindness, but will also ensure that we are better communicating the breadth of our work with our supporters—old and new."

"We aimed to make the new website as compelling and interactive as possible to bring to light the problem of avoidable blindness," said Gregoire.

Utilizing Orbis's new brand voice, the website exposes the issue of "Why Vision", defining the problem of avoidable blindness, and the solution that Orbis brings to address it through training, research and advocacy. To accomplish this, the layout and design of the website takes a visual approach utilizing the wealth of vivid Orbis photography capturing its work over the last 30 years.
