Michigan State University hosted the annual Big 10 Development Conference in 2017. The conference brings together the top fundraisers from each Big 10 University to share their knowledge and insights. As the lead developer on the project I was tasked with developing the out the website.

Working with Advancement Marketing and Communication's lead designer, we were able to get a design that was colorful and fun while maintaining simplicity and functionality. The home page features a edge-to-edge, awe-inspiring image of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum with clouds floating by in the background.

The site was developed to meet the needs of the modern conference attendee who would be checking for updates to the schedule on their mobile device. Optimizing images and using vector graphics where we could, the site has an ultra-fast loading time of 1.2 seconds.
