A New York-based research and analysis firm specializing in Russian legal and financial matters.
The Deutscher Verein New York was founded over a century ago and its members are among New York’s German business, medical, and legal elite. To remain up-to-date with technology, the club approached me to update both the look and the functionality of its existing website. The new features include a members only area with a members directory, a messaging system and an online dues payment system, with many useful automated features to manage membership. Additionally, we added an online events registration module, that we customized to meet the specific needs of a members organization.
For this project I was in charge of transferring an existing site and design from an outdated CMS to WordPress, to allow for better SEO, a user-friendly backend, and a responsive layout. We used the transfer as an opportunity to reorganize and update the site’s content and tweak the design subtly to give the site a bit more of a cleaner look. We also added an online shop and an event calendar.
