Current: The Metropolitan Transportation Commission Serving the Transportation Needs of 7 Million People in the Bay Area Every Year

Task: I was brought on board as senior copywriter and content strategist to develop a brand voice that positions MTC as the center of "all things transit" for the transportation needs of 9 Bay Area counties. Client also demanded a fresh, simple and user-friendly approach to all copy.

Challenge: MTC is a public agency, and state and federal regulations and nuances play a critical role in every project, initiative and program that it undertakes. These regulations and legal nuances must be incorporated into copy. Another construct demands that the copy must also speak to the needs of more than 7 million people who use Bay Area transit every year.

Accomplishments: I worked directly with subject-matter-experts to craft copy that would highlight MTC's important work, and how it affects the public's daily lives and their commutes. I gently pushed the MTC culture toward value-added copy under responsive design constraints (less = more). I absorbed material and reduced content from 1,000 pages to 300 to create structure and content that was accessible and meaningful. I contributed to successful copy presentation with design and engineering staff during Drupal development. I added strategic value to the team across many facets of the development cycle (design, IA, CMS, post launch maintenance, etc.).
