As an intern at Witness I was part of the digital team, working on their new website. The site was to be re-designed, and moved from the former Drupal platform onto Wordpress. This meant that a big chunk of not-so-well organized content needed a new structure. The biggest challenge was to create an appealing, user-friendly interface, without losing important information. We had to find a way to gather and categorize the different content, including a major video library, and present it in a logical way. The solution was to create a main site with several micro sites linked to it. I got to work on the interface; create wireframes, set up color schemes, chose imagery and create an icon set to be used throughout the site.
