The primary objective of my project was to create a website. This is the Church’s first website. It’s a Spanish Church website. My design goals included developing an intuitive UI/UX experience that would allow users to easily access their products. I also wanted to provide greater device accessibility through responsive web design.
Project requirements established by the client included a simple, clean and attractive design. They asked me to develop an aesthetically appealing color scheme and typographic layout. The project had to be cost efficient and finished before deadline. My website needed to have search engine optimization, mobile accessibility and responsive web design.

Wireframes - Creation
For my wireframes, I created comps for the church using Balsamiq mockups. The first comp I made got approval from the customer with some changes. Once I had client approval, I developed more mockups of other pages on the site. I made all of my wireframes in Balsamiq.
The primary challenge I faced involved acquiring necessary source materials from the client. My customer did not send me the resources I required in a timely fashion. When they did send me image files, they were too low resolution for me to use.
After discussing the issue with my client, they eventually delivered to me all the materials and resources that I required. I built an eight page finished website from scratch. I configured the hosting server for the church, so there was no Wordpress platform. The website is a fully custom made CMS platform using PHP. I did the meta data for each page for SEO.
Roles & Responsibilities
My individual role for this project involved web design and web development including creating wireframes, user interface design, and prototyping in both HTML5 and CSS code. I also helped my programming team with back end development.
