University of Texas School of Law (2005)

UT Law (2005)

In early 2004 I started working as a temp worker at the UT School of Law, and within the next year I was working on redesigning the visual look of the entire site. I reworked the previous homepage extensively, keeping most of the content while aligning to a strong grid and refactoring our previous single “rotating” highlight graphic into the multiple news photo buttons and the single large banner feature. The navigation was changed from dicey old JavaScript into purely CSS-driven drop-down menus, there was much more room for secondary action items like the “Apply Now” button, and users reported being able to find what they were looking for much more quickly. This homepage lasted until 2008 when it was superceded by a related but much cleaner design.
