Fight for the Future Donate v2 | Fight for the Future
In the summer of 2015, I flew out to the Boston area to jam on some online fundraising optimization with Holmes and Tiff of Fight for the Future.

Visually, step one was to make the form tighter and responsive. I wanted to make sure the form itself was the only visible element on load. Learning from my own and others’ testing, removing distractions on donate forms increases conversions.
During this two-day jam session, I had the opportunity to not only work with several members of Fight for the Future in person, but also collaborate with CTO Jeff Lyon via Google Hangouts. It was a great experience and I think quite a success.
