Redesigning the bbg.gov website
I led a small team that was responsible for redesigning the Broadcasting Board of Governors’ main .gov website, transforming it into a modern responsive website using the U.S. Web Design Standards.
The previous site was hard to update and difficult to navigate. It was plagued by duplicative, outdated and inconsistent content.
I worked with the stakeholders to define site requirements and identify opportunities to improve the workflow for maintaining the site. I was responsible for designing the overall look and feel of the website as well as creating the main page templates. I developed the templates from the initial pencil wireframes, to coding the HTML markup, to styling the pages with SASS/CSS. I worked closely with a developer on front end and back end code. I helped promote overall site consistency in the coding and visual styles across the site.
