Web Design

I managed SBCERA's website for over a decade through a variety of different platforms, including HTML coding with Adobe Dreamweaver and Drupal-based CMS. In May of 2019, SBCERA began a website redesign. I wrote the RFP for the below website redesign and managed the teams involved. I worked with Sacramento's Digital Deployment on design, content review and creation, launch, and promotion.

Between May 2019, and November 2019, I reviewed and managed a deep dive of the existing website, I led internal SBCERA teams through exploration exercises, website design example reviews, conducted stakeholder surveys, coordinated adherence to brand standards, and managed an exhaustive content review process.

Branding and Marketing

In February of 2019, SBCERA began a rebranding process. I wrote the RFP and led the evaluation team for this project. Between August 2019, and November 2019, I worked extensively with our vendor, Agency ETA, on the entire rebranding. This included the development of a brand style guide, an identity package, handouts, brochures and booklets, and postcards. 

I have assisted Inland Empire United, a collaboration of community agents and leaders who believe in affecting change in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, with their graphic design. They are a top advocacy group in the Inland Empire and do amazing work.

These are additional graphics for another campaign that IE United did not use.
