The Kentucky Board of Nursing redesign was implemented to restructure and overhaul the site architecture, as well as give it a fresh design. This site required ongoing client feedback to ensure content consolidation and an iterative process to remove outdated content. I was the design lead and architecture expert on this project.
KBN had several primary goals: improving user experience, increasing accessibility, and enhancing content organization. Input was collected from various stakeholders, and other state board websites were researched and analyzed to identify best practices, design trends, and functionalities that could be incorporated into the new website. A thorough content audit was conducted to assess the existing content's relevance and quality. A determination was then made on what needed to be updated, revised, or removed, ensuring that all essential information was retained.
Designing the Site
A new information architecture was developed for the website where the main categories and subcategories were defined, and organized into a logical and user-friendly structure. The color schemes, typography, imagery, and icons were carefully chosen to reflect KBN's mission to create an excellent user experience. The design showcases user-friendly navigation, clear call-to-action buttons, and intuitive user interfaces. The site was built using mobile first design principals, and was tested to meet current accessibility standards.
I also provided SharePoint training for the staff at the Kentucky Board of Nursing.
This build was a combination of a custom SharePoint master page, page layouts, XSLT, and CSS.
