Summary

International House is a non-profit based in Fort Wayne, Texas that provides services to refugees like ESL classes, childcare, and support groups. They were in desperate need of a new website design to attract donors, provide information to volunteers, and communicate services to clients.

Tech Used

  • CS3
  • HTML5
  • Bootstrap
  • OctoberCMS
  • jQuery

What I Did

  • Chose design direction and theme
  • Designed architecture and technology structure
  • Customized and developed site from theme
  • Continued ad-hoc support to client


Problem: The Interntional House website was using a stock template from an outdated CMS which severely limited their ability to update their website. The client needed a fresh look for the website in addition to a better way to access the back end and make changes. With no mobile functionality, the site was essentially useless to half of the clients donors and volunteers

Solution: Using the Bootstrap 4 library to ensure mobile compatibility, I built them a site starting from a design template and customizing it for their specific needs. Built on the OctoberCMS platform, I was able to integrate a blog as well as the ability to edit the site all within a lightweight system. Now the non-profit is able to focus on providing donors and volunteers with the information they need to help the project.

Let's Get Started!

I am currently working as a game design intern remotely for Tastypill over the summer. Regardless I am always happy to chat about your game or project, and am open to providing feedback for resumes and cover letters!
