REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS to build a new website for ARTICLE 19

ARTICLE 19 has been advocating for Freedom of Expression and Information for 30 years. In 2017 we celebrate that achievement and will begin to introduce more and more people to the focus of our work through a new communications strategy and a refreshed look and feel.

Having grown from a small London based NGO, ARTICLE 19 has in the last decade developed to encompass a number of regional offices and a significant international presence in the field of human rights.

Widely regarded as the leader in on digital rights, media and the right to information, ARTICLE 19 works to ensure that international, regional and local laws, and practice are conducive to the protection of two interlocking rights enshrined in Article 19 of the UDHR: the freedom to speak and the freedom to know.

Towards the end of 2015, the organisation launched an ambitious 6 year strategy called the Expression Agenda (XpA). The new website, must in every way, reflect that ambition and make the XpA accessible and relevant to its target audiences.

Scope and specification of the project:

We have carried out a detailed review of the audiences and of the performance of the current site. The analysis of findings can be found in the UX Report in this package of materials.

Because very little works well on the current site, we are seeking a significant improvement in performance and experience. In particular the site must be mobile friendly and appear seamless between devices, on the move, or on the desk.
