Performance Monitoring and Impact Analysis Tool for USAID

Between July 2011 and January 2012 I was contracted by USAID to help their mission in Iraq develop a Performance Monitoring and Impact Analysis tool. As is increasingly often the case, they were faced with the option to license an expensive proprietary system or to follow waves of others and to give open source a try. I helped the mission design and develop the IMS Prototype captured in the attached screenshots using Drupal 7 and several Google APIs.

Election Results with Maps and Charts on Drupal CMS

While on contract with the UN, I created the results site for Wolesi Jirga and Provincial Council elections in Afghanistan.

That was before I delved into Drupal in any depth. Having after-the-fact realized how powerful Drupal was, having been in possession of the public election data, and wanting to prove a concept — I decided to redo things how I would do them now.

NGO/Project/Field Office Website

In 2009 I created this Drupal site to demonstrate the types of fully sustainable content management systems that I develop by blending the latest innovations in information technologies with effective use of Web2.0 design sensibilities (again, this was 2009 so 2.0 was all the buzz.)

The fully functional online version can be found at http://tatweer.gohernandez.com.

For a quick introduction to this project, view the video below:

One of my favs

I've recently added one of my favorite projects to my project spotlight. This is a sustainable, Drupal-based elections support website that integrates with Google Maps and the Google Chart APIs. See site here.

I have spotlighted some of my work from the past decade below. 

Please note that confidentially agreements govern much of my output and as such, I cannot post it here. However, from time to time I will anonymize and post demostrative versions of my work herein.

Please contact me if you would like to see more of the fruits of my labor.

[Update 2012/07/20: Polling Center Mapping with Drupal and Google Maps added.]

Drupal with Google Maps

I created this site to demonstrate the power of going open source.

This is a Drupal implementation that integrates with Google Maps using a freely available module. The rest of the site is a demonstration of several modern best-practices in web design.

Note: This site was completed in 2010 using Drupal 6. 

You can see the solution here.

Corporate Identity Redesign

For just shy of 2 years, I was the IT Officer for the Stop TB Partnership hosted by the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. Prior to my arrival, the Partnership had engaged an agency to redesign the Stop TB Logo.

The Stop TB Partnership management was not pleased with the first set of comps we received after my arrival so I created a set of my own comps which eventually evolved into the final logo which is still currently in use. This final logo was chosen over the comps sent over by the award-winning agency that was contracted to do our redesign.

This logo, in full and in emblem form, is widely recognized in areas of high TB incidence and the Stop TB Partnership has been widely lauded for the quality of its advocacy, communications, and branding.

I have many years of exposure to printing and publishing through family businesses and summer work as a student.

New Corporate Identity

I developed this corporate identity for Mission Ready Systems, a technical and creative outlet of mine.

The images herein are jpegs of the proof ready hi-res PDFs I deliver to printers. I have many years of exposure to printing and publishing through family businesses and summer work as a student.

Afghan Election Results

I developed this results progress visualization and delivery solution for the Joint Electoral Management Body (JEMB) while on contract with the UN Office for Project Services (UNOPS) during 2005.
