Urban Plains

My debut as Webmaster happened in Fall 2017 with Urban Plains, a student-run online magazine publication that’s part of the Drake SJMC capstone program. For Urban Plains, I did several things: Redesigned the previous website using WordPress. Customized the site with CSS and minimal Javascript. Employed plugins, theme features, and coding to support vibrant photo galleries, 360 degree photography, videos, infographics. Optimized SEO to make each page and web story visible in searches.

Iowa Prayer Breakfast

While Urban Plains was politely draining my free time and sanity, I was hired by the Iowa Prayer Breakfast committee to convert their old website to WordPress. I modernized the previous site including updates to color scheme, typography, photography, and general layout.

Khmer Krom Association of Iowa

I updated the Khmer Krom Association of Iowa’s previous website to better lead visitors to donate to the KKAI’s upcoming building project. My redesign also included a consistent color scheme and design elements, an organized photo gallery page, and a new layout.
