Freelance Web Designer

[ Work I did here : Xerox / MetroCity Millenium ]

Title: Freelance Web Designer
Date: January 1998 - November 1998
Location: Various @ Istanbul - TURKEY


Xerox Turkey had just created a new service called "Xerox Contact" which aimed at a one-hour response time to all kinds of client support requests arriving from a variety of sources and in a variety of formats and also integrated lead management into the package. Xerox wanted to launch this service on its web site but the site was badly designed and clunky. I was hired on a contract basis to completely re-design and develop the web site and help integrate Xerox Contact's web and e-mail aspect into the general workflow. For the hosting, I chose a reliable UNIX based hosting company whose IT Manager I knew personally and was able to provide Xerox with not only a design solution but a viable IT solution as well. I used various meshing PERL scripts for data collection/distribution and consulted with Xerox's IT people on format conversions and compatibility with legacy software.

ACHIEVEMENT: A month after I completed the project, PC Magazine Turkey ran a series of clandestine tests on the web services of various companies and graded them using three criteria: response time, site usability and quality of design. The Xerox Turkey site came in second from among 20+ companies. Also, I was ideal for the client as a one-stop solution as I was able to execute the technical aspect in parallel with the creative.


Early in the year of 1998, I did the website and the CD-ROM of Metrocity Millenium.

I also completely re-designed the Johnnie Walker Turkey corporate web-site.
