SAIC - Websites, Widgets, and Style Guides
Within this project, you'll find samples of some of the work that I did while at SAIC for seven years as a Principal UI Designer.
 
Much of the work is focused on the SAMHSA.gov website, as I spent the majority of my time with SAIC servicing that particular contract.
 
It's worth noting that during my time there, I was named as "Key Personnel" during the first major rebid of the $26 million contract - which we won.
While serving as the Principal UI Designer at SAIC for the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration contract, one of my last major projects was a complete revamp & redesign of their 100+ websites. One of the major themes of this project was creating a unified visual branding, as many of the websites that SAMHSA hosted were built by various contractors throughout the years.
 
The above screen capture is of the first live version of the redesigned homepage. The colors were picked by a committee, who wanted to express the southwest US attitude that the new agency administrator brought.
 
The information architecture, overall design, coding, and structure were designed by me.
 
This website launched in early 2011, and was applauded by many people within the agency as a huge step up from the previous design of SAMHSA.gov, which had continued mostly unchanged for nearly six and a half years.
The above screen capture is from the Style Guide I wrote for the 2011 SAMHSA.gov redesign.
 
The style guide covered the fonts, colors, branding, headers, footers, information architecture, page layout, and coding standards that were to be maintained with the new design.
The above screen capture is of several of the SAMHSA sites that I personal designed, redesigned, and maintained during my time with SAIC.
The "Find a Job Opportunity" widgets were designed for the HRSA federal agency as part of their National Health Service Corps.
 
Towards the end of my time with SAIC, the HRSA contract specifically requested that I be delegated to them for several weeks, as they had heard of my reputation for being able to design, code, and implement functional, cross-site widgets that had high-visibility and were in support of major agency initiatives.
 
The results of my widgets being implemented throughout the HHS federal platform was a noticable up-tick in the NHSC website's traffic, and apparently a slight increase in their IT funding the next fiscal year that could be attributed to these widgets & their placement on several websites. I'm quite proud of that.
The above image was a logo I designed for the first iOS app that I ever designed, the SAMHSA Mobile Treatment Locator.
