Bermuda Heart Foundation

The Bermuda Heart Foundation is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to supporting heart health and reducing heart-related illnesses in Bermuda. My colleagues and I traveled to Bermuda for seven days to work with the Bermuda Heart Foundation. Within the team, I held the position as the lead user experience and user interface designer as well as an assistant to the web developer. Having this role I conducted multiple usability tests, sketched layouts for the website’s redesign, created working prototypes for the client to view and engage with, and coded the foundational structure of the website.

Tools Used: Adobe XD,, WordPress

Sketches: The client essentially wanted to house three websites within one since the Bermuda Heart Foundation is an umbrella organization to many others. This appeared to be challenging for me due to the fact that the previous version of the site included an extreme amount of content. This led to my first task which included sketching a site map for the new structure of the website. (Site Map, About​, CORE, JUMP2BFIT, Home, Health)

Prototyped Webpages

The above images display the individual webpages that I designed within Adobe XD. This is what was presented to the client before moving forward with the coding process. I incorporated different colored navigation that corresponds to the major programs housed by the foundation, CORE, and Jump2BFit. These colors would be consistent throughout the webpage so that users would know the difference between the organization/programs and the page each relates to. The client also specified that the website needed to “eye-catching” upon entering. The web developer and I also decided that a continuous video showcasing each program’s attributes would be a good way to interest the audience.
