Sidewalk Runway - Website - Case Study​

Team: Amy Wang

2 Weeks - July 2015

 

Tasked with creating a website that explores a problem/area of opportunity for an existing brand and considering technical constraints.  Working with only one other person, we also had to be very time-conscious.
Created a website to explore the problem that many people face when shopping online for clothing/accessories: you never really know how things will look on your body.

Absynthetika

Absynthetika Designs Website Redesign
2 days - October 2015

 

Tasked with redesigning of a website that advertises custom and hand-made garments.  Since they did not want it to be a full e-commerce website, they asked that I give just enough information and visuals to show their range of work and give a more professional look to incite more trust with the customer. After looking through competitive/comparative sites, I created this website in a way that promotes a community feel and gives a face to the designer, as the items that are sold are at a higher price range and require a level of comfort in giving personal details.

Game Jams and Hackathons
 

I love taking part in these activities because I feel like I learn a lesson every time, and it really helps me learn how to best prioritize and communicate.  Plus I get to meet and work with new people, which is always a welcome activity!
