The Ramakrishna-Vivekananda Center of New York is a branch of the Ramakrishna Order in India. They came to me because they wanted to give their website, first launched in the early 90’s, a complete overhaul. I coded the redesign in pure HTML/CSS/JS and worked to the following goals:
1: Update the website aesthetic to be more minimalist and accessible.
2: Redesign the site navigation and layout to be more intuitive and usable at any screen size.
3. Refresh the ecommerce section of the site to be more mobile-friendly.
4: Develop metadata more in line with search engine optimization best practices.
Since launching, the website's user base has increased by 60%, and page views have increased by 30%!
Take a look here:
"I enlisted Sel’s help because our website was out of date and needed a total overhaul. Sel worked to understand our goals and very quickly produced diagrams so we could agree on a vision for the update. They were friendly, timely, attentive, and unafraid to learn about our full suite of functions and services. Not only did they produce a more modern, user-friendly site, Sel also showed me how to use Google Analytics so I could better understand my users. In short, Sel was a pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job. I highly recommend them.” — Keith Martinez, Member of Ramakrishna-Vivekananda Center of NY
