19 Best Non-Profit Websites (And Why They’re Awesome) Acumen Fund The Acumen Fund has one of the most innovative designs we’ve seen. The homepage clearly tells their story, with sections on “What We’ve Accomplished”, “What We’ve Learned”, “Where We’re Headed”, and “How You Can Help”.

You have to make tough calls about what needs to be obvious, what should be easy, and what should be possible. The more things something (a product, a feature, a screen, etc) does, the more calls you have to make.

10 Powerful jQuery Media Plugins to Charm Your Visitors There is a well-known idiomatic expression saying that ‘content is a king’.
