The InfoTects, my UX Design team, collaborated to redesign the University Writing Program (UWP) website in order to improve the overall user experience. By utilizing user experience design methodologies, we designed an improved website in order to elicit a positive user experience which benefits students, faculty, and administration.

With our final product, we fixed a lot of problems with information organization. The look, feel, and organization was not consistent with other UC Davis web experiences. Our group decided that a uniform experience is important because users would be able to access information more quickly if they have an existing schema of the website’s functionality. After visiting websites such as and, our group adjusted the website's aesthetic, and modified signifiers and color schemes to be more consistent with other UC Davis sites.
