New Video Background for USGBC

Every now and then I get design-related projects with my work at USGBC. The other day I worked on cutting together videos of buildings for a new video background on USGBC’s main website. I added a consistent filter so the videos would look somewhat similar. I haven’t worked too much with video before, so it was interesting putting together something with iMovie. It’s inspired me to make a few videos for my studio art-related work sometime in the future.

PEER was in need of an full website redesign. I began the process by creating wireframes for the user experience. Next, I developed and designed the website in Drupal. Images were Photoshopped and added to the necessary pages. I also designed icons in Illustrator to use on a couple of the pages. CSS and Javascript were used to make the website more interactive as well as responsive.

Redesigning USGBC.org’s Homepage

Earlier this year, I worked on reworking USGBC.org’s homepage. The main navigation was also reworked and was launched in conjunction with the homepage redesign project.

Previously, the homepage looked like this:

As you can see, the logo and search box appeared right below the main navigation on every page. Thus the header took up quite a bit of real estate. The homepage itself had a carousel with banner images that were swapped out every few months.

I worked on redesigning the header so that the logo, search box, and navigational links all existed on the same line. For the homepage, instead of using a carousel, I worked on adding a video background with a text overlay and a call-to-action button. Here’s the final look:

Overall, it was very exciting to refresh the look and feel of the website by making a few enhancements to the homepage, as well as the overall website layout.
