Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) is a project at the University of Mary Washington. The DoOO project allows UMW students, faculty, and staff to register their own domain name and associate it with a hosted web space, free of charge while at UMW. With their Domain and corresponding web space, users will have the opportunity and flexibility to design and create a meaningful and vibrant digital presence. In late 2019, I redesigned the site as a continuation to my M.S. User-Centered Capstone project. Essentially, I brought the prototypes to life! The site is not only the log-in portal for users, but also includes help guides, educational resources, and examples of student sites.

Below are some screenshots of a few different pages I designed for the DoOO site in late 2019. To learn more about the site’s design journey, you can look over the final presentation of my M.S. User-Centered Capstone project.

*Note: The website’s appearance may have changed since I departed UMW.
