The Institute for Global Happiness

The Institute for Global Happiness is the brainchild of NY Times Bestselling Author and TED speaker, Neil Pasricha. Targeting middle level managers, the Institute provides free resources and tools that drive long term happiness within organizations. We worked with Neil to create a digital home for his new Foundation by designing and building a custom WordPress theme.

We wanted to create a calming and interesting experience for users, whether it was their first or one hundredth time visiting the Institute’s site. We designed a custom WordPress site that features a mood evoking background image that changes every time you refresh the homepage. Below the welcome image you’ll learn a bit about the Institute before being encouraged to explore other areas of the site. In addition to web design and development services, we worked with Neil to create workshop cover pages and 3D renderings of book and resource covers.

Prior to the development of this site, Neil used his blog to promote his books. He never had a home for his titles, so we developed a dedicated page on the new site for all of his books, including his latest The Happiness Equation. Visitors can purchase through the listed retailers, and Neil can earn commissions through the affiliate links. So go ahead and buy a book!
