The project lead at the Schroeder Institute, a part of the Truth Initiative, needed a way for researchers to easily recruit study participants. Our previous working relationship and her confidence in my work helped her choose Rad Campaign’s proposal. I was assigned as solo developer and project manager on this Drupal project.
When the Planned Parenthood Action Fund decided to oppose Ken Cuccinelli’s 2013 bid to become governor of Virginia they came to Rad Campaign with a timeline of three weeks to launch a site. I was assigned the project and worked with Allyson Kapin during an accelerated assessment process to determine client’s needs and requirements.

Clean Water Action’s website reflected the stewardship it had been given: the site had grown organically with little organization and what organization existed reflected the thinking of the organization’s long time staff. It wasn’t serving the organization’s supporters and ultimately it wasn’t serving Clean Water. Changing that was my first task.
While the redesigned Information Architecture and improved UX helped to turn Clean Water’s website into an asset for both supporters and the organization managing it in that format was not sustainable. To implement the organization’s newly created communications strategy Clean Water needed a content management system.
Clean Water’s President wanted a blog where he could express more unvarnished opinions that didn’t necessarily reflect the organization’s official stance. His desire to stay with WordPress meant creating a custom theme to express the organization’s new visual brand.
