Ohio Higher Ed

University System of Ohio
Lead front-end production for massive portal to a state-wide school system. Work with remote teams to meet an aggressive deadline.

The Ohio Higher Education website is designed to help prospective students arrive at the best possible school for their career path.

In addition to the engineers at the Department of Education, there were several different companies and freelancers working on the site. I was extremely impressed with the DoE engineers as they had very clear goals, process and communication throughout the entire life-cycle of the project.

My role was to architect the front-end of the site.

Because the budget was very tight, a large portion of the design favored wire-frames over detailed design composite PSDs. From the wire-frames, I had to create an elegant design using only what could be rendered solely with HTML and CSS.
