East Wake High freshman Jeremy Booker spent Groundhog Day shadowing Wake County Public Schools System Webmaster Paul Cory, one of nearly 2000 Wake County students who spent the day following and learning from members of the local work force. Part of his day included a meeting with DesignHammer Managing partner David Minton. Cory thought it would provide for a more well rounded understanding of the industry if Booker was able to meet a web developer from the private sector.
In conjunction with the dedication of its new modern facility, the North Carolina Hillel Foundation sought an updated look for its web presence. DesignHammer took the existing content and wrapped it in a stylish look designed to appeal to students and community members alike. Features of the redesign include and up-to-date visual "look and feel," text-based headlines and navigation for quick display and easy updating and a stylish month-by-month calendar of events linked to detailed descriptions.
