My name is William Hawke Bassignani, and I am a web designer in Irvine California. Currently at Blizzard Entertainment.
FitRec is BU’s fitness center. BU Interactive Design redesigned their website and customized the WordPress-powered back-end to be highly editor-friendly.
My primary responsibility was the build. This involved both standard front-end development as well as customizing the WP-Admin with settings pages and meta boxes to streamline editing and prevent editor mistakes. Build
I also contributed design to many of the responsive layouts in the process of building the site, adjusting any desktop-only mockups to fit multiple viewports. Design, build
FitRec was built using Sass and mobile-first web development.
Bostonia is BU’s award-winning, print and online alumni magazine. We build everything responsively, including the feature stories, and publish three times a year.
First and foremost, Bostonia is a team effort: it truly takes a village.
My primary purpose is to maintain and improve the site’s front-end and CMS. I designed and built the current homepage design and internal page templates. The online magazine constantly evolves, however, so stay tuned.
I also build feature stories and interactive content for Bostonia. BU ID’s web designers translate the print magazine to the web, and the developers (myself included) make them real.
