The Ask


JEM Search is a national full-service contingency search firm licensed in Oregon that specializes in medical sales recruiting. It helps match candidates with employers and vice versa. Their previous website was built in 2010 by an agency in Bend Oregon and needed a major facelift. Along with a facelift of the site, their web and email hosting needed to be migrated to more modern and cost-efficient services. Finally, it also needed their website to be secured with https.

What I Made



The Why


JEM Search's previous website was designed like a lot of sites were in the early 2000s. They were designed to cram as much information on the first view of the home page as possible and weren't designed be scroll. With this new website design, I made the website's homepage extend down and include information about all the pages. Though a lot of features were stripped from the previous website, all the copy was left the same. 

I wanted to include a lot of the same concepts from his original site, but give them a modern improvement. I kept the low opacity grey world map and put in in the header. I also included the header menu from the previous site and added to the new design with some minor adjustments.

I kept the same colors from the original site, but added a couple more complementary colors and got rid of the orange. This new color scheme makes the site looks sleek and brand new, and it also matches well with the updated photos of John.
