While working for Indiana Interactive, I redesigned and redeveloped the state website for Indiana. I also contributed to a design system so that our 200+ state agency websites could make use of shared components with consistent styles, efficient and reusable code, and a more consistent user experience. We ended up getting 3rd place in the "Best of the Web & Digital Government Achievement Awards 2015" as awarded by the Center for Digital Government.

The website was submitted to the "Best of the Web & Digital Government Achievement Awards 2015" and won 3rd place for best State Government Website. The direction of the design was refined and ended up winning first prize in subsequent years, based on my design and my code.
