Indiana Interactive / NIC, Inc.

11.2007 - Present: Creative Services Team Member | Indianapolis, Indiana

  • I primarily work with Indiana agencies and numerous other clients developing application prototypes and web sites from design to code mainly focusing on today's current technologies and accessibility.
  • My design process begins with researching existing analytics and survey information. Based on the information, I begin wire framing which evolves into multiple mockups, and finally a working prototype. That prototype is then built out into our Content Management System which limits user error and maximizes interface design identity.
  • In 2010, I redesigned the core IN.gov web site and implemented Web 2.0 applications and standards which received 3rd place in the 2011 Best of Web competition. We recently updated the site again based on survey and analytics information.
