Revamping the RHoK Australia website

I spent most of yesterday revamping the RHoK Australia website in preparation for the next round of applications. There is still a lot more work to do to make it work more effectively, but I think we're getting there.

Recent changemakers and projects are yet to be added, as well as photos from our most recent hackathons.

The majority of my time was spent overhauling the Become a Changemaker  and  Become a RHoK star  pages, and making our reach or impact more visible. 

Showcasing our impact hasn't really been a priority for us but it's becoming increasingly more important. It enables us to standing out from other hackathons, and it makes it easier for us to attract quality Changemakers and to retain sponsors. Over the next couple of months i'll be focussing more on impact.

Then later on this year we will look at rebranding RHoK. Our logos and marketing materials look dated (they are at least 10+ years old) and they don't reflect our ability to deliver cutting edge technology solutions. 

The next step is to make sure our values and mission statement come across more clearly.
