Brief: to build the site once the design was completed by another member of the CWA team. To design and develop lower levels of the site following the initial design.

My responsibilities included:

  • HTML encoding of content following design templates, plus graphics in the deeper levels of the site
  • Development of site into the deeper information-rich levels, and development of the design within these levels
  • Client liaison.

I liked working with this design - it was clean and clear - and it was great to be able to develop that and use my own ideas in the deeper levels of this site.

Boasting a real swag of essential information, useful to any prospective or curious student, the website is a fine example to tertiary institutes throughout the country. And some minimalist styling with super-clean lines make it a joy to browse.
