block-quote-line All of my ideas from the consultation were incorporated nicely! Also really liked that I can maintain and update the site myself.
For this campaign, I had the challenge of showcasing life stories from all different kinds of people in a way that they could be proud of and call their own.

What I did:
  • Coordinated with my photographer to schedule shoots of each participant to give a unique feel and add context to each story.
  • Created a newsletter and branded emails so that the campaign could keep in touch with those interested in their mission.
  • Developed a Content Management System that allows the team to publish new Articles and Stories whenever they want.
  • Added forms that receive feedback, new stories, or pledges from visitors on the website.
  • Responsive website that performs well on mobile even with the large number of pictures on the site.

block-quote-line Reviews on your work have been universally superlative. Brilliant Work.
Designing a website for a global audience is never easy; each decision must undergo extra scrutiny to ensure it will be appreciated by many different types of people. For showcasing each Play, I had to maintain the reader’s interest in the description of an art form that’s meant to be experienced live in a theater. I decided to go with a design reminiscent of a brochure that would be handed out before the play began, using large imagery to set the tone, quotes to draw interest, and a description that leaves readers wanting more.

What I did:
  • Created a robust search engine allowing viewers to quickly search for plays by multiple criteria
  • Created a Content Management System allowing World Communities to publish new plays and make announcements on their homepage
  • Forms allowing visitors to commission or produce new plays, become a World Communities Associate, or share a play they’ve written.
  • Facebook Advertising

block-quote-line I really appreciate the attention to detail. Every part of the website felt polished.
Websites for Educational Institutions must display more information in an organized manner than practically any other business. I took extra care to confirm a strong taxonomy with the client before moving forward with the design, saving time in the long run and avoiding a last-minute overhaul by building a strong a hierarchical foundation for the vast number of pages I’d be building.

What I did:
  • Created a Careers page that allowed future employees to view and sign-up for jobs offered by the school
  • Worked with my photographer to take pictures for the website
  • Strong organizational hierarchy and clear navigation to help visitors navigate navigate a large website easily
  • Content Management System allowing the school to update their site with current events and announcements
