Templates & UI kits = working smarter
While I was initially hesitant to use a template, I kept an eye out and finally found a UI kit that matched my initially wireframes well. After experiencing the amount of time and effort it saved us, I plan on using UI kits as starting points from here on out!
Content creation is a team sport
Having previously always worked closely with a marketing manager to coordinate content for the web sites I was designing and developing, the fact WEconnect's one-woman marketing team left towards the beginning of this project, presented me with a new opportunity for learning.
I collaborated across departments to make sure that the content I'd created relevant to their needs was accurate and included the most important information. I also organized a web site committee to gather feedback and iterate on the site before presenting it to leadership and launching.
