Website redesign: Rochester International Association

Looks like I am approved to get started on redesigning the Rochester International Association website. It’s been about 4 years since it’s last redesign. This is how the website looked like before 2004.

RIA website before 2004

I have some interesting ideas for it:

  • Instead of the blog as the front page, redesign front page to simplify navigation and accessibility.
  • Split up into 6 themes according to what are the most requested information: World Festival, Your Country, About RIA, Blog, Events Calendar, Memberships.
  • Shiny new logo
  • About RIA – Allow people to easily find photos, and other promotional materials. Without exposing personal information, add a directory of current board members and a way for people to contact them.
  • Your Country – Enable people to easily find resources and news based on a specific country.
  • Memberships – Add ability to renew or join membership online. Add a way to accept credit card donations online via PayPal or Google Checkout.
  • Link to Facebook group page for RIA
