Additional Australian Antarctic Division websites

During my employment at the Australian Antarctic Division I have been responsible for the refresh or redesign of a number of sites housed in the Squiz Matrix content management system. Some of these sites have now been redesigned again and moved into ProcessWire, as you will see on the respective pages for those projects.


Australian Antarctic Division website refresh

When I commenced at the Australian Antarctic Division in 2010 the site had just been redesigned for its migration into Squiz Matrix.

In 2011 I performed a few tweaks to refresh the design.

I refreshed the design again and made it fully responsive in 2015.

The site was redesigned and migrated into ProcessWire in 2020.

Technologies used

HTML4/HTML5, CSS, Squiz Matrix, Photoshop, BrowserStack and UltraEdit.


Australian Antarctic Division Intranet redesign

In 2011 the existing Intranet, which was housed on an ageing system, completely crashed so the web team had to implement a new one in Squiz Matrix within days.

I came up with the new visual design and coded the necessary templates while colleagues concentrated on repopulating the content. In 2015 the design was retained but it was made responsive.

This design was kept until the Intranet was migrated into ProcessWire in 2020.

Australian Marine Mammal Centre redesign

In 2012 I was asked to redesign the Australian Marine Mammal Centre website.

I incorporated the existing whale and wave devices into the new design, which they wanted to somewhat match the main Antarctic Division website at the time.

In 2014 the home page layout was revised (at their request) to further match the Antarctic Division's home page layout. At this time some new buttons were also required so I created the icons for those using Photoshop. This included tracing a photo of a whale to produce a similar graphic to the existing whale.

This design from 2012/2014 is still in place, but may be redesigned in the near future if it is to be moved into ProcessWire.

Home of the Blizzard website refresh

In 2012 I migrated the Home of the Blizzard website from its old system into Squiz Matrix and gave the design a refresh at the same time. I didn't have access to the original banner image so I reconstructed it to be wider using Photoshop.

Heard Island website refresh

Once I had migrated and refreshed the Home of the Blizzard website, I sought permission to refresh the design of the Heard Island website to match (they had similiar designs to start with). I didn't have access to the original banner image so I reconstructed it to be wider using Photoshop.
