Product ownership and frontend development for an internationalized, localized, responsive website for Forcepoint, powered by Raytheon, the new face of Websense.
Websense's public facing website was powered by an outdated and inflexible CMS. As they prepared for the joint venture with Raytheon to launch Forcepoint, significantly expanding their product offerings and target verticals, they wanted a path to streamline the management of their content, unify internationalized (translated) content rather than having discrete sites, and be able to localize (geographic relavence targeting) their website's offerings.
Design and frontend development a powerful online community of women and allies building solutions to today’s biggest challenges.
World Pulse was running on a heavily customized, but overgrown Drupal 6 installation. The design and user experience made sharing content unintuitive and cumbersome, particularly on mobile devices. Further, internationalization was not supported. World Pulse's mission to change the world by empowering community leaders across the globe but primarily in developing nations depends on a site that is fast, enables easy onboarding, can be used on low-power and mobile devices, and is easy for a small team of administrators to maintain.
User flows, wireframing, user testing, and development of administrative dashboard for policy document drafting, routing, publishing, and historical tracking.
The University of Texas at Austin's Policy Office has a complex workflow for the drafting and review of policy documents. Documents must have a rich audit history as they are circulated to various departments who may or may not be allowed to edit, may or may not be allowed to request changes, or simply offer comments. This "routing" history, along with each approved and published revision of the document must be available for the UPO and legal teams, while the most recent approved version must be easily accessible to the public.
A presentation on the Singularity Grid system: embrace your content and free yourself from predefined media queries, presentational classes, and clumsy layouts.
Too many grid systems require strict adherence to their own conventions like preset media queries which don't truly support your content or design, presentational classes which litter markup and can be difficult to insert in Drupal 7, or strict layouts which don't allow proper content prioritization.
