Web Design How-To Guides


Willa W. Jarnagin

Willa W. Jarnagin

Director of Web Design & Communications Services

As a web designer and front-end developer, I contribute to many aspects of Amherst’s web presence — from content strategy to code, from enhancing visual impact across the site to helping departments with their content. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for help!

I work closely with the Web Services team in IT, specializing in SASS/CSS and various aspects of interface design. Additionally, I design and build custom sites (see The Common and Emily Dickinson Museum), and work with vendors on all kinds of projects. With a background in graphic design, typography, and illustration, I can make original graphics for websites, social media, and more. Finally, but perhaps most importantly, I can help with the usability, accessibility, and search-engine optimization of various kinds of content.

Contact me for help with your department website, for special web projects, and for digital aspects of the Visual Identity Toolkit.
