West Coast Fencing Club

In the heart of Berkeley is a club dedicated to teaching the sport of fencing. The site features information about the club, schedule, classes, and features the gifted team of fencers who teach here.


The West Berkeley Fencing Club offers beginner and experienced fencers an opportunity to fence, train and learn. The space has been completely renovated and is both functional and beautiful.

Executive Director Mark Headley met Ruby Slipper while collaborating on another project — The Selberg Institute, which operates land preserves in Southern Oregon. This connection turned into a project for the fencing club in Berkeley.

Ruby Slipper chose vertical left navigation to accommodate their logo, as well as a unique way to stack content. The site features information about the club, a useful calendar, instruction for all ages, and the gifted team of fencers who make up this very special place.
