Shannon has provided project management for 16 website build and redesign projects and full service development for seven sites. Click here for a graphic timeline of website projects.
DTB Associates came to me looking for a fresh and updated look to their website that would convey the firm's areas of expertise in trade, agricultural policy and legislation. The new design incorporates elements that focus on international trade, relationships and smart business. The site includes intuitive, dropdown navigation, a graphic slider on the home page as well as mobile & tablet compatible code. I continue to maintain the site. Use the slider to see a glimpse of what the site looked like before the remodel.
Panama Poultry Export Quota, Inc.
The PAN-PEQ.org website is for an organization that facilitates trade in chicken leg quarters under the U.S.-Panama Trade Promotion Agreement (TPA). The client wanted to highlight the positive trade relationship between Panama and the United States, which was the inspiration for the main graphics on the site. I continue to maintain the site.
Central America Poultry Export Quota, Inc.
The CA-PEQ.org website facilitates open-tender auctions for the right to import chicken leg quarters in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua at zero-duty in the amount of the tariff-rate quota established by Central American-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR). I developed a secure online bid submission system that eliminated a lot of administrative steps and potential for human error that is effectively used for both CA-PEQ.org and PAN-PEQ.org. Knowing that chicken leg quarters travel mostly by cargo ship (as do most of the users of this site), I opted for graphics that conjure images of cargo being strapped to an ocean-going vessel. I continue to maintain the site.
Colombia Rice Export Quota, Inc.
The COL-RICE.org website is for an organization that facilitates trade in rice established by the U.S. & Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement (TPA). Rice is a beautiful grass. The color and grace of the plant as it bends under the weight of the grain as it nears harvest makes for great imagery on the site.
The EvergreenPeace.org website supports a local peace organization in Evergreen, Colorado. I developed the site as a means to foster communication with our community and share resources with other like-minded groups. I continue to maintain the site.
Website Project Management & Maintenance
SweetSurprise.com was part of the Corn Refiners Association educational efforts on high fructose corn syrup. I was responsible for managing the initial development of the site in 2008, and worked with multiple agencies to refine and improve the site visuals, functionality and messaging through three major updates. I provided maintenance of the site, which was built on Drupal.
SweetenerStudies.com was another site in the Corn Refiners Association educational efforts on high fructose corn syrup. This site provided scientific and technical information for health and nutrition professionals. I managed initial development of the site for the client working with multiple agencies and was responsible for maintenance of the Drupal site.
