Make Something Edmonton

Love when a community project gains momentum like the Make Something Edmonton project has. The design is excellent all the way through – take a few moments to “flip” through the site – it’s not like other sites we see here at UMS – and we love them for that.

From the Designer: We asked you to do what you’ve always done, to MAKE SOMETHING. We encouraged you to do it in an EDMONTON way. In our first weekend, you launched over 80 Make Something Edmonton projects. To date, there are over 600.

    Thanks for sharing the Make Something Edmonton website and initiative. We think it’s great because citizens are empowered to upload their projects and also find other people and projects to support. Lift Interactive did a great job.
