My role was the Senior Designer & Front-End Developer. I lead and mentored two other designers while working on this product who provided visual and ux design collateral when needed. We were brought onto the team to do a complete over hall of the previous website. The previous website can be viewed here using the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine.

See below the redesigned version of the fully responsive website which I hand coded myself (PHP, HTML, SASS/CSS, Ajax, jQuery/Javascript) along with managing the back end server needs such as ssl certification, Wordpress upgrades, apache patching, ect.

I began working on the site in id 2015 as a side project, building mockups and wireframes for the website redesign. It wasn't until early 2016 that I took the project on full time and finalized some crucial design aspects of the site. From the gate the intentions of the site were very ambitious, but the majority of what was asked to be included couldn't make the timeframe for launch so I worked on a phase by phase approach to roll out each feature after the initial launch date.

From 2016 to 2017 I lead my design team through multiple iterations of mockups and wireframes, building a cohesive brand along the way. We launched the newly designed website in January of 2017. See below a couple of the other pages from the site.
