In December 2014, I was contacted by The Wisdom Link, an Intellectual Capital Development firm based in Michigan, to begin freelance web designing.
The first client that I was assigned to was Civil Design Concepts (CDC), a civil design engineering firm based in North Carolina. The Wisdom Link provided the color palette, logo, and UX wireframes from others on the creative team.
The Wisdom Link also provided information about the client, the purpose of the site, and the profile of a typical potential user. With this information, I knew the site needed a clean, flat and professional presence. The About Page needed biographies without clutter of all the text. I chose to design with a hover effect for their biographies. Also, you can see that information throughout the site is organized in clear, clean containers for the user to understand the mission and work of CDC clearly.
I truly believe my time and mentor relationship with Bloc prepared me for working remotely. The Wisdom Link and I used Basecamp to communicate needs, edits and files. We also used Balsamiq for wireframes and Invision for client reviews and edits.
I am available for freelance web design and some front-end development. I am looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate and bring your ideas to life!
