What did San Francisco Education Fund need?

Laura-Jane helped San Francisco Education Fund * User interface design for the development of a new website * Improvement to the user experience on its website

Why is this project important?

Everything we do is to benefit the kindergarten-12th grade students of the most in-need schools in our district, but our website serves a variety of audiences (potential volunteers, donors, and teachers). We need to make sure that we are getting them the information they need easily and effectively without losing them along the way. We also would like to add some functionality to the website and make sure those functions are scalable as we continue to grow to serve a greater number of schools and students.

This project will save us $11,946, allowing us to fund about 5 grants, benefitting at least 3500 students.

Hello,

I am a User Experience Designer. I specialize in taking projects from the research phase up to front end web development. I've worked on mobile, web, and desktop applications, including work for the medical industry. I also have conversational knowledge of SQL databases and a few key programming languages. So if you need me to speak intelligently with a dba or developer for this project, I will be able to.

Services I provide:

- User Research:
This starts with identifying your target market, and researching their current behavior and needs.

- Workflow design:
I map both the ideal routes through your website, and try to optimize for minimal clicks and ease of navigation.

- Wireframing:
I have 3 years experience with creating interactive designs like websites, mobile apps, and desktop apps. I sketch out the basic designs for information placement, calls to actions, and content design.

- Graphic Design:
I have 6 years of print and graphic design, including a degree in technology design.

- User testing:
I can make prototypes of the final website and test with your target audience, so you know it will work for users before you spend money on developers.

- Final mockups and technical requirements:
I can create final design documents and documentation to be given to developers.

- (Limited) web development:
I can code HTML, CSS, and some php ( the backbone of Wordpress.) I am familiar with responsive design techniques, which will enable you to view your website on mobile devices like phones and tablets, without having to maintain two sites.
