I'm a junior at Pathways Academy of Technology and Design and an intern at PELabs. I'm interested in working in the IT field and I currently do web design for PELabs.
As a company that's just starting up, PELabs needs a website to explain what we produce and what kind of internship this is. So all six interns on the Web Design team worked together to make a website for the company, explaining our mission and vision, and what the three departments do.
Dates worked on project: 6/26, 6/27, 6/28, 7/2, 7/3
The purpose of this project was to create a visually pleasing, effective website for PELabs, while also introducing the Web Design interns to WordPress. In order to create a good website, we couldn't just rely on the information given to us to make an effective web page. Design was also important, so that includes the addition of relevant pictures throughout the site. Not only does this make the site not look like bland text, but it also gives the user a visual understanding of what we do here at PELabs.
I worked with my fellow intern, Elliot, to create the Digital Media department's page on the website. I contacted all the department heads to get information about their departments so we could have accurate descriptions on our web pages. Elliot and I went to Digital Media to take pictures for the web page.
Sons of Thunder Website
The Sons of Thunder are a locally founded community organization addressing the successful skills of Hartford youth in basketball and in life. Michael Copeland, the Founder and Chair of SoT, requested to have a website built for the organization in order to provide a history of SoT, as well as spread awareness of their upcoming events.
Dates worked on project: 6/27, 6/28, 7/2, 7/3
On the front page of the website, we needed the most important upcoming event to be displayed so the user would see that first. To accomplish this, we used the large banner on the top of the front page for the most important events.
My role was to create an About Us page for the website, so I had to work with Mr. Copeland to satisfy what images and text he wanted on the web page to accurate describe the organization.
