Portfolio: Blog Web Design Samples
Irving Democratic Club Web Site and Blog
No longer online, the IDC's web site provided newsletters, upcoming events, and other club information, along with an open blog to encourage participation in local politics.
As a pro bono project with a minimal budget, we designed and developed this web site using Blogger™ as the site's free Content Management System in order to facilitate site maintenance by club administrators.
Minimal design guidelines were given for this project. However, easy site maintenance was a consideration as club administrators didn't have any knowledge of HTML.
Although Blogger was used, we designed and implemented a totally customized HTML/CSS template for the IDC. The design leaned towards clean, simple, and easy to read.
Club newsletters (most updatable element of the site) were set up with the CMS. That way club administrators could easily post articles through a simple web interface.
