Client: Learning Disabilities Association of Oklahoma
A friend of mine who works for this non-profit asked if I could fix the organization's website. The previous webmaster left a mess of unmaintanable code buried in multiple nested tables and chose a very strange neon pink-on-purple scheme, which contrasted pretty badly with LDAO's logo. I threw out the original code and re-designed the site from the ground up using colors picked from their logo.
I specifically built the site to be easy to maintain in the future; in retrospect, I should have set up WordPress. Hindsight is 20/20...
What I Did
- Created entirely new CSS site theme
- Converted existing site from tables to valid CSS
- Created PDF of scholarship application that boosted registration to near-capacity
- Taught the organization how to make simple changes and create the PDF of future scholarship applications
