HAMPTON ROADS – Recently tHRive, a young professionals program of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, launched its official website. The new responsive website is very “millennial-friendly” with an interface that is both desktop and mobile friendly-a key necessity when reaching a younger generation. The site organizes their wide spread of events with multiple modes of displaying the choices they offer. It also serves as a hub for event photos, press releases, news articles, event recaps, and opinion editorials. Since their inception in July, tHRive promoted themselves through a static page on the Chamber’s website. This fully content managed site allows them to reach millennials in a more dynamic manner.
“When we began tHRive we knew we needed to make website development a priority to reach our generation,” said Julia Rust, Chair, tHRive. “As a new program, the kind of site we needed to reach young professionals wasn’t financially feasible—until the sponsorships began coming in. It has been a lot of work to develop a new organization and website concurrently but my team has done a great job distributing the workload. This newly designed website will allow us to grow with our current and future initiatives.”
The site was designed by photographer/graphic/web designer Alejandro J. Medina, owner of Alejandro J. Medina Studios, who serves as the Chair of Branding for tHRive.
