Apex Learning

After going through a formal interface design with Web Associates, Apex Learning asked for our help developing robust templates and guidelines for their content. After extensive internal investigation, we recommended the use of XHTML and CSS in their templates, hoping to simplify the publishing process for their content providers and ease the programmatic strain on their engineers.

I was the designer given the responsibility of coding the templates. I worked closely with the art director and the client to establish the content requirements of the templates and worked independently in implementing those requirements. Extensive browser testing, several iterations of content and content requirements, and some fun icon development produced an interface that wowed the client and made their lives quite a bit easier.

Note: Apex has demos of their content on their site that utilize the coding standards developed at Web Associates.
