Project:

A political campaign needed a platform to quickly get its message to the public. It was decided the site needed straight forward navigation, photos to help visually tell a story and keep the site interesting (politics can be dry), About and Contact pages and a blog for the candidate to express himself and invite feedback.

Elements:

First, a logo was needed for the header. The design is simple and straight forward with variation in colors and fonts to add interest. The final art work stated clearly what the site was about. A WordPress blog was integrated into the site with brief descriptions and links from front page to each article. The public was able to easily comment on an article via a simple form at the bottom.

Website:

Since the campaign is over, the website has been taken off the internet.
