Web Design & Development

As a web developer, I possess extensive knowledge and experience in utilizing HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, MySQL, and the Adobe Creative Suite. These are vital tools that every web developer should master in order to create visually captivating and highly functional websites.

Crafting an Online Presence With Purpose

My approach to web design is grounded in the belief that a website should not only be visually appealing but also user-friendly and purposeful. I begin by deeply understanding the essence and objectives of each brand, enabling me to develop a design strategy that aligns seamlessly with your goals. I am a firm advocate for clean, intuitive design that elevates user experience and engagement. With a strong focus on responsive design, I ensure that your website looks and functions optimally across all devices. My design process is iterative, interactive, and always open to valuable feedback, guaranteeing a bespoke website that resonates with your target audience and enhances your online presence.

Website Redesign Project

As the project manager and designer, I successfully undertook a comprehensive redesign of the BCCLS website. Our objective was to create a user-friendly, visually appealing online resource for the public, including government officials, library trustees, library donors, and BCCLS patrons. By emphasizing a forward-thinking public library system, we aimed to enhance the overall user experience and promote collaboration.

To achieve our goals, we utilized WordPress as the content management system, ensuring seamless content management and quick information dissemination. Our strategic approach prioritized mobile device access and usability, ensuring that users can connect with member libraries and access shared resources from any device.

The website’s design was meticulously crafted, showcasing call-to-action buttons and vibrant images. Through a neutral color palette and white backgrounds, we reflected BCCLS branding while maintaining a professional and user-centric visual hierarchy. Our navigation design made it effortless for visitors to navigate the site, and the introduction of a new search bar streamlined information retrieval, resulting in increased efficiency.

The redesigned BCCLS website now represents the organization’s commitment to cost-effective resource sharing and collaboration. Serving as an invaluable resource, it provides essential updates to the public and stakeholders concerning their library privileges. With an emphasis on user convenience and delivering an inviting user experience, our redesign consistently leaves a positive impression on visitors.

Intranet Redesign Project

I completed an intranet redesign project for BCCLS, a consortium of member libraries operating on a large scale. The objective was to replace their existing homegrown intranet, “MyBCCLS,” which was built on WordPress, with a more scalable solution that could make better use of their Google Workspace.

By upgrading the current intranet, we were able to leverage the existing Google Workspace infrastructure, seamlessly integrating with Google Drive and consolidating information from various sources into a single, reliable platform. This streamlined the distribution of content via Google Groups and eliminated information silos, enhancing discoverability across the organization for both internal stakeholders and content.

The redesigned intranet significantly reduced manual upkeep, improving workflow efficiency for BCCLS. It also facilitated smoother management of fluctuating employees and their related permissions and provisioning. Automation was implemented to streamline access to platform areas and enhance communication through Google Groups.

With the new intranet solution in place, discoverability was greatly increased across the platform and Google search, ensuring ease of navigation and information retrieval. The implementation included a simple yet powerful search feature that spans the entire platform, enabling quick and efficient access to relevant information.

This project exemplifies my portfolio as it demonstrates my ability to deliver a polished and user-centered redesign that addresses specific organizational needs.
