Design is an integral part of modern education. Technologies from word processors to learning management systems all have design elements to them. I have devoted a significant amount of time to understanding the fundamentals of design. My goal is to create simple well-structured documents (powerpoints, websites, posters) that allow users to navigate and comprehend content quickly without any undue distractions.
In 2013, I was tasked with redesigning the home and landing pages of the Center for the Study of the American Constitution’s (CSAC) website. Working with CSAC’s senior staff I rationalized the navigation, simplified and streamlined the homepage text, and added a photo carousel with three photos that correspond to CSAC’s primary activities: editing, publishing, and educating.
