The Hamilton Project

In 2015, I worked with The Hamilton Project — a think tank at The Brookings Institute — to redesign their site. The new UI featured a fully responsive front-end, which was a pretty big win at the time. But the biggest win was a revamped information architecture that is structured around the way they produce research and ensures content is quick and easy to find. The build was completed with ExpressionEngine 2 (again, this was 2015), and involved a pretty tricky data migration. Additionally, I helped THP create several data-driven “interactives.” Built with D3.js and designed to easily be embedded by other economics and news sites, these infographics allow users to explore everything from average lifetime earnings by degree, to water usage across the United States, to gender-driven pay gaps by occupation.
