Our web design team includes Indigenous members and advisors, with roots firmly planted in their Winnipeg and Métis communities. We’re honoured to consult and collaborate with communities, Elders, advocacy groups and support agencies across Canada to respectfully represent Indigenous values and culture.
How is Indigenous Web Design Different?
“An Indigenous website is a culture-based website”
– Shaun Vincent, Vincent Design founder and Creative Director
Representing culture, in Indigenous web design or graphic design, begins with listening to the community, including hearing specifically from Elders and Knowledge Keepers. Building those relationships happens over time, and it’s not a step that can be rushed.
While elements of tradition and symbolism carry through in our work for Indigenous businesses, communities and groups, there is no such thing as an Indigenous website design template.
From First Nations, to Inuit to Métis, the vastness of the land is matched by a depth of culture and community.
Respecting this includes a comprehension of the vastness and variety of history and culture and how it may be portrayed in Indigenous and First Nations web design. While icons are the visual shorthand of website design, you have to understand what those symbols mean and where, when and how to use them – or leave them out entirely.
What are the Opportunities for Indigenous Web Design?
It’s important to represent the community and the culture respectfully. Whatever we do must positively impact Indigenous peoples who are both the subject and sharers of their stories.
Indigenous web designers have a unique opportunity to honour the past and also reflect the resurgence of Indigenous culture among young people, so that they can also see themselves and what’s important to them embraced now and into the future.
