Waylon Baumgardner

Hi, I'm Waylon. I'm a front-end web professional living in Southern California.

By day I design, develop, and manage digital projects for California Baptist University. By night I work as a freelancer helping people design and develop front-end products. I also teach courses on various information technology topics, including web development.

I'm passionate about the web and the technologies used to support it. I'm also keenly interested in technology, especially how we can use it to change the way we live for the better.

I've worked with some great companies doing design and development work:

Selected Work

Below you will find select examples of my work.

California Baptist University Website

As the Senior Web Services Manager at California Baptist University (CBU), I worked with a team of designers, developers, and marketers to redesign and implement a website that would make content easier to find for future students and improve page performance (particularly important for international recruitment).

The team started from scratch with an extensive discovery phase. In this phase, the team conducted multiple interviews of CBU constituents in an effort to understand how CBU's website was being used. From there, the team was able to identify patterns and discover challenges.

Using a mobile-first approach, the team designed and developed a website that responded to what we learned in the discovery phase.

Launched in September 2016, the new CBU website is the culmination of hard work, passion, and dedication.

Southern California Public Radio Website

Launched in January 2012, KPCC 89.3 Southern California Public Radio's website redesign was designed to be more engaging to current listeners and more attractive to new listeners.

Working in a freelance capacity alongside SCPR's UI/UX design team, I was tasked with developing front-end templates and patterns in support of the redesign, including the homepage.
