Tahoe Media Fellowship

back to work

An upgrade to attract national media

My role:

  • Design
  • CSS
  • Javascript
  • Cascade CMS

I was given the task of creating a destination site that would highlight an upcoming media fellowship at the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center. The organizers were hoping to attract reporters from some large media outlets and felt that the existing CMS template options wouldn't be up to the task. I had about a week to get the project completed and decided to use supplemental CSS and Javascript over the existing Cascade Server CMS framework. The upgrade must have been successful, because the fellowship spots filled up within a week and they went on to have a very successful conference.
