Music Heals International
Strength Through Music
Inspiring Achievement, Resilience & Creativity
Music Heals International is an organization that brings music to students in underprivileged parts of Haiti who are still dealing with the aftermath of recent natural disasters. Through music, MHI brings creativity, resilience, achievement, and culture to classrooms around the country. Using a specifically built model, MHI’s programs impact individual students, their families, the community, and eventually hope to see a broad social change over time within the communities they serve.

MHI came to us with beautiful visual assets -- they had hundreds of high-res photos and videos of their students, teachers, and community members. Our design team knew those images would be valuable in creating an engaging and evocative site and immediately put their video clips to good use by creating a looping hero banner made up of footage of their students. Our copy team crafted the hero message, “Strength Through Music,” setting the inspirational tone for the rest of the site.
“The site looks beautiful!! We are so excited. It looks gorgeous and we have really loved working with everyone.”

Highlighting Your Impact
A main hurdle for MHI is illustrating why music is so important in communities that are still in need of much more basic services. Over the years, MHI has been collecting the data and impact of their programs, and their research and reports prove the overwhelming positive that structured music lessons have on their students. Our designer mixed imagery and engaging design to create graphs, charts, and grids of information that are animated and digestible, helping solidify MHI’s message. A sticky navigation bar, featuring a prominent donate button, takes users where they need to go, including the Hopsie fundraising page. A hopsie fundraising widget on the “Get Involved” page allows for another easy way to give.
