How Clearleft built Code for America

Bay Area non-profit organisation Code for America helps to make US government digital services beautiful, simple and easy to use. Its recent site overhaul, conducted in partnership with UK-based UX agency Clearleft, brought the same values to its own online presence. At Clearleft, Jon Aizlewood handled visual design, freelancer Anna Debenham took care of the frontend build, while Jeremy Keith oversaw work and wrote JavaScript. At CfA, UX evangelist Cyd Harrell handled IA, CTO Mike Migurski implemented changes, and senior marketing manager Dana Oshiro managed the project.
