Autism Speaks: AS Central


AS Central is a intranet dedicated to the internal operations of Autism Speaks. The buzz word around the office was Web 2.0 and I wanted to deliver and open up Autism Speaks normally obtuse view on web marketing and design strategies. Thus I designed something completely different using bold colors and clean interface to make the page really pop and focus driven. Some technical enhancements include the use of lightwindow for site previews and tutorials. Along with PDF tutorials I used Camtasia Studio 5 & 6 to make video demonstrations of each.

Originally I had some great ideas that were ultimately thrown out the window due to “brand violation” in which I show a couple here on the site which includes a puzzle piece missing in a globe.

This site also uses light window in the Sites section to view external sites owned, created or maintained by the organization.
