“I feel like some sort of seasonal gourd…” - overheard this week at Flagrant.

What we did:

  • Got the nod from a client to help with their branding across six different properties/applications
  • Connected with a high school intern about potential summer work opportunities.
  • Brainstorming and proposing new proposals.
  • Ate food and celebrated Memorial Day with neighbors
  • Fought with Tailwind. Learned a lot about borders and its impact on tables (especially when you try and use multiple tables to look like one table)
  • Began incorporating the feedback we received from a user group from our trip to DC to the email wizard UI
  • Created a spreadsheet representing a pricing algorithm so we can compare an old way of working with our new one
  • Started to refine high resolution mockups of an information architecture application and incorporate their brand palette
  • Figured out breakpoints for a bus bar indicator using a recursive algorithm
  • Spun up some self-hosted services and explored what is available in that realm
  • Getting ready for Blue Ridge Ruby!
