SKILLED MANAGERS

Skilled Managers is an online training course created by the University of Westminster, Sheffield University, and ACAS. The project is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council as part of UK Research and Innovation. The training course's objective is to help managers improve their team management skills.

I was originally hired as a freelance designer to work on the UI of their online course, which was built through ANewSpring.

Later on, I ended up rebranding the course where I created a new logo and colour palette which was based on the colours of their old logo. I was also tasked with redoing their website to fit with the new branding and creating social media posts and infographics for the course. The design for the website is very simple as it has to comply with the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)'s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, with the University aiming for an AA rating. It also has to be easily navigated by the target audience which include the older demographic. The design went through numerous changes to ensure the website works well with keyboard navigation and screen-reader.

The website is currently live at skilledmanagers.org
