springforward – Project Design & Development
reWORKit developed this site for Iona Frost and springforward, her start-up consultancy providing support and professional advice for small businesses and other organizations. Iona had a feel for the look she wanted to convey, thus springforwardproject.com was created through collaboration on the design specifications and the content organization.
Whether you have some design ideas in mind or are looking for it to be created for you, reWORKit will tailor your site to meet your needs.
Great Lakes Commons Map – Project Development
This crowdmapping website was developed for Paul Baines as he embarked on a tour of the Great Lakes. He wanted a central hub to report on his discoveries surrounding our most precious common resource, water. Beyond his own observations, however, Paul encourages use of this map for everyone to reflect upon and share their own relationship with water.
reWORKit managed and developed the online aspects of the project utilizing Ushahidi mapping technology.

OctopusBooks.ca – Site Coordinator
This wonderful, socially active bookstore in Ottawa hired me for 3 years to coordinate book sales on the site, as well as to update daily news and coordinate an Ottawa activist events calendar. Here I learned to manage web content and plan out the structure of a website.
It is vital that your content be clear and easy to find. You want a logical place for every new item you put up on your site. It is during my time at Octopus books that I first developed the skills needed for easy site navigation.
