Each election cycle, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) hosts the Dirty Dozen on their Web site. According to the LCV Web site, “Every election year, LCV’s trademark Dirty Dozen program targets members of Congress — regardless of party affiliation — who consistently vote against the environment… where LCV has a serious chance to affect the outcome.” As a part of my role with LCV, I was entrusted with the most recent update to the page where the public can vote for the next member as well as the subsequent sharing page. I hope you can stop by and make your voice heard. It only takes two minutes to vote. Voting ends at midnight this Thursday, August 26th.
Additionally, for all of you who may live in Pennsylvania or know someone who does, I also updated a campaign page about Pat Toomey, a candidate for United States Senate. My role was coding the page for style and feel. I really enjoyed these small projects and it gave me a chance to reverse-engineer how the LCV Web site and other Web properties are constructed to learn how to use them for future assignments.
As a point of concern that I would like to address, I want to assure you that I will not continue to post every project that I am a part of at LCV. I am excited that I get to use my skills in graphic and Web design on the job again. It is something I really enjoy and I think it lets me express myself in amazing ways. There is something about making written text turn into a picture before someones eyes and I am not talking about telling a story.
There’s only a few days left, please go vote today.
