New Haven – The Glendower Group, Inc. launches new website, www.theglendowergroup.org, that will include new branding which more closely aligns with their mission as a nonprofit corporation promoting and advancing neighborhood economic development, related employment opportunities and housing revitalization and urban renewal through the provision of decent, safe and affordable housing to low and moderate income families particularly in the Elm City, located in Connecticut.
New Haven, CT, September 29, 2020 – The newly designed website of The Glendower Group goes live this week at www.theglendowergroup.org, featuring an updated logo which more closely reflects their mission as a development company that creates, constructs, renovates and restores for the good of their residents and community. TheGlendowerGroup.org aims to extend the reach of their development services by serving a broader audience in the Connecticut area. The new website features expanded content and resources and incorporates new navigational tools. As well as highlights their new branding.
“The Glendower logo and tagline presented the welcome challenge of humanizing an organization and creating a feeling that’s the opposite of how people envision typical housing authorities, property management and development companies,” says Todd Russell, president of BlueStar Communications Group, the Connecticut branding firm who created the new logo and tagline.
The Glendower Group’s tagline – Empowering Responsible Development – better reflects our commitment to be a housing destination of choice. We empower our residents, we empower our employees, we empower our community, yet we’re responsible – to our funders and their money, responsible to our residents, responsible in the materials we use, responsible for our developments.
“Our online visitors will now experience a seamless view of the whole Glendower establishment,” says Shenae Draughn, Glendower Senior Vice President. “The design of the website creates a new home in cyberspace for people to access our developments and view our services.”
“As a premier development company serving this area it is important that we have a website that showcases our capability and that our partners and potential partners can access to learn more about us. We thank ezSite Content Management Systems for their support in the development of our website and BlueStar Communications Group for their branding expertise,” says Karen DuBois-Walton, Ph.D., Glendower President.
In addition to an online snapshot of Glendower’s developments as well as impressive before and after photos, the site will also outline the many services that Glendower can provide to other developments looking to employ the same techniques including funding and relocation services.
“This new design was created to provide our partners with helpful, valuable, informative and interesting content,” says Ed LaChance, Glendower Vice President. “Our hope is that the information we post helps build an online community while our physical communities thrive.”
