This week we’re celebrating, on top of everything else, winning work with our client’s customer with their approval.

What we did:

  • Drafted a presentation for the company
  • Fixed some decade-old code that was never re-thought when the front-end it supports went from being a web form to a GraphQL API
  • UI Card design for contact list information and email compose wizard polishing as we are getting closer to the finish line
  • Submitted a talk to ConFig 2023
  • Travel Logistics Platform

    • Sprint planning! Feel the fresh air!
    • Got data export we needed to bootstrap a project database
    • Added ability to update imported data
    • Identified what felt like unnecessary design complexity (from a UX standpoint), and decided to reframe the problem a bit.
    • Chatted with the client about planning the next big phase of our project
    • Got through some mini rebase hell merging a ton of work that happened last cycle
  • Supplier Directory Project

    • Finished interviewing stakeholders, agreed on codes for shared analysis 🤓and planned our next round of user interviews. 
    • Welcomed a new researcher to our project team! 
    • Planned for holding a problem statement workshop, and planned backwards from it.
