Collaborating with front-end developer to design and build personal portfolio website.
Duration: 3 Weeks group project
Team: Kate Sniegocka (UX/UI), Janusz Mazur (Front-end Developer)
My Role: UX Design, UI Design, Visual and Brand Design
The project goal was to build a new portfolio website to showcase my skills in User Experience Design. I have decided to collaborate with a front-end developer to build a custom responsive website instead of using one of the pre-built templates like Squarespace or Wix, which was a great opportunity to learn more about product development.
My role was to provide the content, which included projects imagery and prototypes’ videos, and write stories about the process and outcomes. I also designed visual style for the website to reflect my personal brand and keep it consistent with other personal channels. I used Sketch and InVision to create wireframes and prototype.
It was a valuable experience working with a developer on production up to the final delivery. While using agile development methodology, we learned how to collaborate in a cross disciplined team. I learned more about the programming terminology, the process and how to create a responsive digital product. Also, how my design decisions are impacting the development process and how to solve some of the issues that occur during the production.
