Rittenhouse - R2 Library Website
TL;DR Project Summary:
The Business Ask:
"Update our (database-looking) reference website."
What I Did:
- Recruited a UX Researcher and Front End Developer to work as a team with my hiring client, Technotects (the backend people)
- Managed the Project through Basecamp and Project Meetings
- UI Design
3 Things I Learned:
I ventured into "Agency Mode" for the first time on this project, recruiting subcontractors to help meet my client's needs. I discovered very quickly that I should have also hired a Project Manager, because that, my friends, is a full time job.
This UI Design is seven years old. I'm quite proud of it still, because the visuals that I used 7 years ago are widely adopted today (larger text, easier reading, obvius controls). People protested them at the time. But it's kept the company current.
Working with a highly skilled Front End Developer is a rare and beautiful thing. If you need someone, I know an exceptional Front End Developer you can hire. Honestly, I didn't even need to do Design QA. And that NEVER happens.
