Work completed in 2020–2021 for University of Washington, School of Public Health and UW DEOHS

School of Public Health magazine. The UW School of Public Health’s anniversary issue celebrates the school’s 50 years of impact. I contributed print layouts, story illustrations, web design, and front-end programming for this milestone edition of the magazine. View the digital magazine

DEOHS homepage refresh. Collaborating with my team, I identified, designed, and coded improvements for the DEOHS website. One of the significant new features we implemented was a fully custom slider component that highlights photos and blog content in an elegant, dynamic way.

Each slide item has style options to pick from, which gives the site editor more control and adapts to different quality photography. And instead of dot navigation, we opted for teaser tabs at the bottom, showcasing content for the visitor upfront and bringing forward the UW’s brand elements.

I learned a lot about web accessibility through this project, and it was rewarding to see through a new component from concept to finish. View the CodePen

Newsletter. I created a refreshed e-newsletter header and developed marketing ideas to increase awareness and engaged followers.

Serving Washington State page. My team and I launched a Serving Washington State page to promote our department to legislators. I contributed web and UX design for the informational landing page.

Wildfire smoke resources. Working with the UW Superfund Research Program, I created an infographic about how to make a simple box fan filter that public health groups shared during wildfire season.

COVID-19 health disparities carousel. I designed an eye-catching and informative Instagram carousel post about COVID-19 health disparities in King County/Seattle.

Grad student recruitment campaign. I designed a grad student recruitment campaign for social media, which resulted in a 32% year-over-year increase in grad student applicants.
