Web Developer for UNANIMA

It's great that our non-profit is hiring a web developer. Revamping their website is clearly a top priority. But it does raise a few questions in my mind as to what the distinction will be between our group's work, the web developer's vision and the web manager's vision. UNANIMA has been accepting proposals from potential developers who pitched how they imagine the new site to look and function. An internal staff member is in charge of redeveloping the front end of the site. It seems our job is to combine the two, and offer an overall communications strategy. It will be interesting, though, to see how we might potentially overlap/contribute/diverge from the web developer's plan. It could create confusion, or it could facilitate an even more effective web plan for our final project.

  1. I think that whatever you come up with should be information that the developer can make use of, to whatever degree it fits with his or her plans and ideas. It's not uncommon to have outside consultation on a project that's being managed and executed internally.
