Partnerships for Lawrence

Design Challenge

Partnerships for Lawrence is an organization in Lawrence, Indiana that is a champion for the arts in my growing city. They have 2 paid staff members (one of those is part-time) and rely on their website to keep the community informed about upcoming events, to recruit volunteers, and to raise money. The design of the website was dated, and the structure of key landing pages was disorganized. They needed to have a clean, modern, organized look that would better highlight their organization’s goals.

Microsoft Press Store (Completed 2014)

Responsive Product Page

Design Challenge

We have a large group of e-commerce sites that we work on at Pearson, and we are introducing new features and design updates on a regular basis. Launching a new site, redesigned from the ground up, isn’t an opportunity that comes up very often for us. When I learned that we were going to sign a contract with Microsoft to sell their Microsoft Press line of books, and sell that series of books through a new site, I was champing at the bit.

Responsive Product Page

Design Challenge

In order to better serve visitors to our e-commerce sites who are using non-desktop clients more and more, we realized that we had to make our product pages mobile-friendly. Complicating the effort was the combinations of product types, formats and prices for thousands of products.

Tabs to Modified Accordion Prototype

Tabs to Accordion

Design Problem

When we go to a responsive design on our product pages, one of the things we need to figure out a way to handle tabs. Since they require a lot of horizontal space, we need to work out the most lightweight way to change the display for narrow viewports, while still providing a great user experience.

Responsive Store Browse Page (Completed 2013)

  • Added to my portfolio on January 20, 2014

Search Wireframe

Design Problem

The landing pages for our product formats were not very user-friendly. Since we have sub-formats, we wanted a way for users to be able to filter and sort our format types, while also making it friendly across the widest array of devices.

Newsletter Documentation

Design Problem

Our email newsletters were due for a redesign. The type was too small, the amount of copy was overbearing, and they were not optimized for mobile delivery. In addition, built by people with limited HTML knowledge. We needed a design that would appear modern, make the content seem less overwhelming, and which would be easy for content creators to update.

Responsive Promotion Pages Prototypes (2013)

  • Added to my portfolio on January 20, 2014

Tool Wireframe

Design Problem

At Pearson, promotion pages are usually built by people with limited HTML knowledge, using outdated methods (fixed-width, table-based layouts). We need a modern, future-friendly method of building responsive pages that will easily fit into our existing workflow.
