The goals of the new website were mostly to improve the user experience of the website, particularly between the main website and the members area as well as improving efficiency of the admin process. My role in the project was straight forwards, to take a set of wireframes and apply the new brand, which was exciting because the rebrand was colourful and creative and it wasn’t difficult to see the direction that the design should take. The designs were tested with members of the society to identify further improvements and the new website has significantly improved the engagement of members and non-members.
I built the front end markup by creating a style guide and pattern library that included all widgets and pages, before passing it on to the developers for them to integrate into Sitefinity CMS where I supported them with QA testing and design implementation.
