UXPA Boston Website Redesign and Development

Custom website architecture, design, and development for a large Boston-based UX community.

Project Summary

UXPA Boston, a prominent community for usability practitioners in the Boston area, approached us with the need for a comprehensive website overhaul. Recognizing the significance of a modern aesthetic and streamlined content management, the goal was to create a visually appealing and user-friendly platform. This initiative aimed not only to revamp the website’s look and feel but also to implement a structured CMS that facilitates seamless content updates for their diverse monthly events.

Project Features

Competitor Research: Conducted thorough competitor research and discovery to inform the design process and ensure the website’s uniqueness within the industry.

Information Architecture: Developed the site’s information architecture, leveraging site statistics and user data to drive decisions and enhance overall user experience.

Design Concepts: Created two distinct design concepts that not only elevated the brand but also resonated with the personality of UXPA Boston.

Integration Expertise: Implemented multiple integrations, including EventBrite, Google Calendars, Google Jobs, Flickr, Twitter, and MailChimp, seamlessly integrated into a WordPress CMS.

Development Excellence: Leveraged APIs to create a current, industry-leading website tailored for the target audience. Applied animation techniques to support user behaviors and ensured a fully responsive site across multiple devices.
