Extending the safe space for women and children to the web

Dixon Transition Society helps to reduce the impact of domestic violence by providing a safe haven for women and children.

The brand style is simple, using images that evoke warmth and happiness.


Recognizing 50 years of service, Dixon Transition Society decides to give their brand a refresh through a logo and website revamp.

Their goal is to position themselves as leaders in their field, supporting diversity and empowerment of women and children. They want their brand to have a prominent, timeless and vibrant look.

Using impactful storytelling, they want to share inspiring stories of change and hope that align with their vision of a world where “Women and children are free from violence”.


After a thorough discovery session and reviewing design options, we settled on a clean, modern style and a logo that uses symmetry and bold colours.

Since the visitor may be a victim of domestic violence, the new site prioritizes visitor comfort and safety. We do this by including:

  1. A pop-up with instructions on clearing browser history.
  2. A quick exit button that opens a new window to hide the original page.
  3. Friendly greetings in multiple languages to welcome all visitors.
  4. Easy-to-use navigation and positive imagery.

The result is a website that reflects the caring approach of Dixon Transition Society.
