For the Future Markets Consultation, a program of events closing off the ‘Good Markets’ research project, we developed and maintained a website documenting the consultation process, including an essay contest and a series of online events. The site is running on a sub-domain of the Moral Markets web portal, and has its own header, footer, menu and color scheme. It thus looks like a separate site, yet content can easily be placed on both websites.
I developed the Moral Markets platform as one of the valorisation activities of a research project on the same topic, and I am still responsible for site maintenance and content management. The site makes extensive use of ‘curated content’, so links to hand-picked articles and information elsewhere on the web. However, I also create original content, such as ‘book interviews’ with researchers in the project.
I became responsible for the site of the DDfV Institute after it had been designed and built by another agency. I added crucial functionalities (such as an event calendar and filterable member page), re-designed various pages (such as the home page) and developed new content (such as a page introducing design for values). I was responsible for site maintenance and content management for two years, while I also worked as project manager for the institute.
As the first assistant director of the then newly established Dutch Research School of Philosophy, getting the organization a website was one of my responsibilities. We needed it fast to start distributing course information, so I quickly put a temporary WordPress site in place, and then hired an external web designer / developer to improve the looks of the site and take care of more complex functionalities, such as the online member database. I’ve remained responsible for managing its content until I left the organisation.
