Brief: translation of bi-monthly printed newsletter into existing website format within the NZQA website. The newsletter was partly in English, partly in te reo.
My responsibilities included:
- Development of Ao Kawe Kupu style to compliment the design of QA News
- Creation of duotone graphics (photos, logos, titles) from printed newsletter to fit existing web format
- Creation of new pages within existing template (HTML)
- Very careful proofing to ensure that te reo sections had been entered correctly
- Liaison with client.
A straightforward translation of printed material into web pages. Once complete, the pages of AKK were handed over to NZQA for incorporation into their website.
