Project Description

For this project, the team was tasked to update and freshen the look and feel of The Pittsburgh Foundation (TPF) website, adding new layouts and functionality. Additionally,the website retained the basic global structure (menus, headers, footers). I was tasked with designing the staff page, the individual member pages, the events pages, and prototyping some of the designs from Figma.

Buttons and Components

A part of the redesign was to create components that gave the Pittsburgh Foundation website a new and fresh look. This provided for an opportunity to explore different interactions that could trigger when users interacted with components.

To test the design of the card component prototype, I developed 3 different interactions when the user hover overs the cards using HTML5 and CSS3. The team ultimately agreed that the colored border was too much because of resizing issues, and decided to go with the direction of the image scaling.
