Project Overview

The core challenge was to redesign Dre Emmanuel’s website to create a better user experience and to focus more on showcasing his experiences and skills to users (targeted audience).

My Role

  • Project: Portfolio Redesign
  • Role: UX Research, Web Designer, Usability Testing
  • Duration: July 2021(1 Month)

Kickoff

Once the goal for the website redesign was identified, I had to identify the primary target audience for Dre’s website to create a better experience and redesign the website according to the needs of these users. Then, I wireframed, prototyped, and tested the design by directly reaching out to my target audience via email before creating the live website using WordPress(Elementor). Just before launching the website, I also sent the website link to the stakeholders for final feedback:

Project Process Description

The first interesting aspect of this project was in applying some HTML, CSS, and Javascript for creating and styling the animating play button which pops up the intro video when clicked.

For the main design, I used WordPress with Elementor Pro & Free to design the main sections of the site. The objective was to keep it simple and showcase the portfolio.
