Challenge

The Willamette Sailing Club Web site was in great need of an overhaul. The existing site had hundreds of pages, with a massive amount of broken links and outdated content.

Approach

Initially I worked closely with the client to determine what was important and what could be discarded, dramatically reducing the amount of clutter. Then we organized a sitemap and started the overall redesign. The design I developed resembled the old site but had a much more attractive and organized user interface. The old site had multiple and confusing menus, which I consolidated in the new site. We also implemented Google calendars for online calendar/event management and gave their internal weather station a facelift to match the style of the new site.

Once I transformed the site, I handed it back to the client to update it as needed. Future plans include expanding the sailing class section and adding a photo gallery.
