My Work

SAGE Publishing / CQ Press / Corwin Press

Web Designer, 2001-2015

I've worked with SAGE and their companies CQ Press and Corwin Press since 2001 with the team that brought their traditional library resources, textbooks, and publications into the digital era. I've designed dozens of online resources for libraries, including the award-winning CQ Researcher. Projects include wireframes, mockups, HTML, and CSS for landing pages, advanced search, browse, registration, and more.

Some highlights:

  • SAGE SpeechPlanner: a step-by-step application which helps undergraduate students write speeches. Screens include tips, examples, validation, and account profile.
  • CQ Press Online Journalism: an online portal that allows students to set up a blog, enroll in a class, activate online modules, navigate online exercises, and submit assignments to teachers.


Jerry Orvedahl, Manager of Online Content Analysis at SAGE Publications, says,

"Lynne is as reliable as the sunrise and creates designs as stunning. With minimal input from me, she invariably nails the look and feel of a concept on the first try. I've been using Lynne's services for many years, on dozens of projects, and couldn't be more pleased with the results."

Sarah Downing, Associate Director of Online Professional Development at Corwin Press, says,

"Lynne's work is wonderful. I've been extremely impressed with her ability to take my company's design sensabilities, translate them into other projects, and deliver designs that are fresh, engaging, and still maintain a consistent feel with our existing products. Her implementation of feedback is so good, that we find we need very few passes before approving designs."
