American Journal of Criminal Law
Role: Freelance designer and developer
I designed and developed a new website for the University of Texas School of Law’s American Journal of Criminal Law (AJCL). The goal of this project was to create a new website design that better showcased new content created by the AJCL as well as provided an easier way to post new content and better workflow controls. The website is built on WordPress, allowing the journal’s staff to manage content updates on their own. It is built based on the Thematic framework with custom functionality that I developed to meet the specific needs of the journal. For instance, there are custom widgets built into the design to showcase the most recent posts and journal issues based on the tags used to categorize content within the site. The website also incorporates jQuery as part of the login control.
