FIRST is a multi-disciplinary international affairs organisation that aims to enhance communication between leaders in industry, finance and government worldwide, and to promote dialogue at the strategic level.
I was tasked with completely redesigning and restructuring FIRST's website and producing a bespoke Content Management System that enables in-house staff to easily manage a range of content (including events, award ceremonies and press releases) site-wide without any training.
I undertook all client liaison, project management, front end and CMS interface design and HTML/CSS templating. I then worked alongside my chosen developer to integrate the site's functionality.
We also created a full online purchase and subscription system tied in to the Worldpay payment gateway, allowing online sales of publications in both hard-copy and digital formats as well as annual subscriptions. Pricing, delivery costs and individual article status (free or chargeable) can all be easily controlled within the Content Management System.
Additionally, I configured a dedicated server for the client as well as copywriting and implementing Wikipedia content and other onsite and offsite SEO measures.
