Role Front-End Developer/UX Designer
In conjunction with Up&Up Agency, I worked as UI Designer and Front End Developer on creating a web app for prospective and freshmen students at the University of Kentucky. The goal of the interface and functionality was to provide an easy way for students to decide their major and what they would do for the rest of their life. Simple right?
As UI Designer, I worked with the Creative Director to design an interface and experience that looked and felt like a native app. Therefore, we took a mobile-first approach and designed something that was intuitive and easy-to-use across all devices. The UI is a three-step process that allows students to search based on interests, potential careers or keywords, receive a list of majors and minors based on that search and, ultimately, find all of the info for the major that they are curious about.
