Collaborate closely with internal and external stakeholders to design and develop an interactive microsite that provides transparency, data and in-depth storytelling related to Bombas’s support for homeless people in America. The content and user experience should be accessible and engaging to diverse audiences, shareable on social channels, and optimized for discovery through search.
The client approached Lineout to develop its first-ever Impact Report. The client’s objective was to document the full scale and scope of its support for those affected by homelessness.
Bombas also wanted a visually-engaging interactive digital experience that would educate shoppers, provide transparency to investors and the media, and inspire its community to get involved in homelessness in America.

Our work began by collaborating with the Bombas team to shape its content goals and proof points for social impact. From there, we created a digital storyboard with a design direction that honored the brand’s creative guidelines while also expanding them to heighten audience engagement within this unique storytelling environment.
We progressed to creating wireframes and, after client feedback, designing the site in full.
The objective of Lineout’s Bombas partnership was accomplished by working collaboratively to deliver a polished final product that delighted stakeholders — the client and its investors — as well as global audiences.
Internally, it stoked the Bombas team’s mission focus and organizational engagement.
