Brief DescriptionThis is a website I developed for the department I worked in.
ClientCenter for Children, Families, and the Law
RoleTeam lead, Content consultant, Developer
- Drupal 7
- university design framework
The ChallengeThe old website design feels dated and navigation wasn’t very user friendly. It was difficult to navigate and locate information. The site was in need of a complete redesign and move to the university’s Drupal system.
The Process Taken
Since this is a departmental project I worked closely with the department’s director, various project directors, and a graphic designer in the department. I hold frequent meetings with various stakeholders and gathered requirements and feedback about the existing site. Existing content was inventoried and old and unnecessary content was removed. I lead the conversations surrounding the purpose of the site and branding and proposed a new look, content and marketing strategy which was well received. I also created a more intuitive information architecture based off on the content strategy and the team’s discussions.
I also incorporated inclusive design and principles and UX best practices to elevate the site from good to better.
