CEM Benchmarking Inc. is an insurance benchmarking firm based in Toronto, ON. I was employed on my first co-op term I was charged with the task of re-designing their front-end customer page as well as a C# .NET forum-like application called the Peer Network. The Peer Network hooked into a new SQL Server 2005 database and all the .NET code was written from scratch in a 3-tier object oriented architecture. Working with another designer in-house, there were many design iterations before we found a feel that would exemplify the quality of insurance fund benchmarking that CEM offers. The site is both modern and functional and the Peer Network is highly valued by CEM customers. Blue as a colour scheme was used heavily throughout the site as it had to mesh well with the existing logos colours (which were dictated to remain unchanged from a previous design). The entire project took 3 months to complete.

Peer Network: Due to privacy concerns I am obviously unable to access the interior of the Peer Network but here is the login and register page on the public site.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my handiwork from my first co-op term!
