In 2001 I volunteered to develop and release the functional, effective, bilingual website of the Russian Orthodox Church, located in Baltimore, MD. The bilingual website features translations and versions of article in both English and Russian. I took over the management of the overall web development process, including site planning, information architecture, design, construction, marketing, and maintenance. In addition, I modified CGI electronic forms and all the necessary scripting and created as well as optimized the web graphics and animated web banner. I now continue to manage the content updates.
While establishing the page design for this non-profit organization, I considered its overall purpose, the nature of its content, and, most importantly, the expectations of the site's visitors.
