Ulster County Italian American Foundation

Ulster County Italian American Foundation (UCIAF) is a non-profit organization with a mission to preserve, promote and celebrate the rich culture Italian Americans share in Ulster County. They had a very basic website that was not truly representative of their brand and did not help them promote their mission or handle the organization's duties.

Our Approach

We created a new design with an emphasis on color and vivid photography.  Much of the photography was done by Wiltwyck - and the website ties in the colors of the Italian flag, as well as their beloved Azzurri blue.   We built the website on WordPress to allow them to make updates themselves. To satisfy their need to make it easy to apply for membership, we tied to the PayPal gateway and set up membership payment and donations. Several online forms were created to allow for membership application, festival sponsor application, etc.

Their Response

Pete Perry and his team rescued the Ulster County Italian American Foundation by giving us an interactive, well designed and attractive new website. We had a very good experience with him right from the beginning. He described the process and asked us several probing questions about what we wanted in our new website, what kind of functionality we wanted and then presented a draft that we could critique and react to. The end product was an outstanding blend of Italian cultural presence and a website that not only “POPS”, but gives anyone who goes on the site, an overview what we do, and how we do it!

In short, Wiltwyck Web Design helped put our new Foundation on the internet and digital map and gave us the professional appearance we were looking for! As President, I can highly recommend Pete and his team as being creative, responsive and concerned with your budget as well. Molte Grazie Pete!!!
