The Nathaniel Centre

Size: 40 pages, 0.5MB

My professional status: contractor at Base Two

Website client: Caritas NZ

Dates: July - August 2000

Categories: IA & UX, Website designer, Front-end developer, Content-loader, jQuery/JavaScript, Old-school table layout, No CMS, Small sites

Brief: to develop an original design prototype (based on print design for the Centre), to create and build a Bioethics website for The Nathaniel Centre.

My responsibilities included:

  • Development of site navigation and architecture
  • Development and expansion of original design prototype by print designer, creation of graphics, rollovers etc
  • Building site (architecture, navigation, HTML, JavaScript, content layout)
  • Ongoing liaison with client.

As this site was aimed at a mid-range audience, the navigation and layout was simple and clear. There was a large amount of content on some pages, so layout was also important. The overall look and feel was calm, informative and reassuring.
