Erica initially met with the Executive Director of Missouri River Relief to get a high-level overview of what wasn’t working on the old website, and what was needed from the new website. She then proceeded to hold a kickoff meeting with their Operations Manager to outline the site map, consult on copywriting, and ensure she had access to all branding materials.
Next, Erica built the initial structure of the website incorporating all necessary design elements before reconvening with the River Relief team to finesse the content. Once all content was approved, Erica proceeded with testing the front-end and back-end code to guarantee it would be functional prior to launching the site.
As the project was wrapping up, Erica created a how-to document for the organization detailing how to edit and maintain the website to serve as a walkthrough for any staff member who would be working on the website.
