Avesis Website Redesign, Design & Development

(Website has changed slightly from original design).

Designed and developed a new look for the Avesis company website. Built with ASP.NET and C#, the goal was to completely revamp the old website from the ground up.

The system required user login, secure dashboard and profile pages, static and dynamic content, and a provider search.

I was able to integrate more modern technologies as well to help improve ease of development and technological relevance. Built on bootstrap, we created a new typography system, layouts, and some new identity guidelines.
