Government status: Government Ministry

My professional status: contractor at CWA New Media

Website client: Ministry of Education

Dates: October - November 1997

Categories: Project manager, IA & UX, Website designer, Front-end developer, Content-loader, Webmaster, Old-school table layout, No CMS, Government websites, Small sites

Brief: to design and build a simple and easy to navigate sub-site within the Ministry of Education's own website, following colour and logo guidelines laid down by the Ministry.

My responsibilities included:

  • Design, look & feel, graphics, HTML encoding, PDFs, feedback pages
  • Creation of PDFs from PageMaker and Word files
  • Site maintenance and occasional updates
  • Client liaison and project management.

The site was aimed not only at teachers of English to speakers of other languages, but also to their students. I liked the design on this one - clean, simple, and visually appealing.
