Design: PBS Home Page

Creative Direction, Design: Website

Haena has what is in my experience a fairly unique combination of skills: extraordinary design ability combined with considerable client management skills.

Everybody wants everything to “pop;” everybody wants the logo bigger; every client wants to be the art director. Most often that results in dumbed-down, lowest common denominator boring design. Haena creates great designs and is outstanding at communicating the reasoning and thought process behind the them to achieve maximum client satisfaction. If she didn’t spend all her time making great designs, she’d be an excellent sales person.

Basically, if you want it to look good—pretty much whatever “it” might be— and you want the client to weep tears of joy when you deliver the product, you should probably get Haena to design it.

I was contracted to help begin the process of PBS’ initiative to redesign the home page of their website. The live website was outdated both in design and technology. They were looking to begin with redesigning the home page first, and then slowly roll out the new design into the rest of the site. It wasn't a small task.

PBS’ website aggregates a lot of different content from many of their partners and affiliates. My design catered to those specificities and utilized their broadcast assets to optimize their digital presence. This design was used to inform and help improve their website’s efficiency, flexibility and improve the overall user experience.

Since then, modern technology has informed and changed the site’s design but it was a wonderful opportunity to work on this.
