Food Action Reserach Centre
The Food Action Research Centre (FoodARC) is a research centre at Mount Saint Vincent University committed to research and action to building food security in Nova Scotia and beyond.
I was hired in 2013 to redesign and reconstruct the main website and a private member area. I worked in collaboration with the Centres' Director, project coordinators, information architect, administrative and support staff to retool the information architecture, functionality, design and layout.
