Origin story time! The word, Flagrant, itself means obvious, undisguised; exactly how we wanted to be able to show up to work.

“The Byzantine problem, but with garbage disposal consensus.”

What we did:

  • Told a colleague the story of a year-long product design/development effort for a forthcoming case study. 
  • Outlined an agenda for a product-ecosystem workshop. Began to collate unmet needs, frictions, usability errors, and pain points as well as potential capabilities we’ve imagined for a forthcoming product strategy workshop.
  • Created a slide deck and planned a workshop for how to brand and name said product ecosystem for a client.
  • Drafted and shared a pre-session survey. Drafted, prepared for, and led five usability tests. Identified and prioritized metrics for a summative (end-to-end) usability test.
  • Struggled with stimulus-dropdown allowing for both an “toggle all” button and individual dropdown toggling working together seamlessly.
  • Made it much harder for users to make invalid orders by validating the modifications as well as just the initial submit.
  • Wrestled with Turbo, ViewComponents and Tailwind creating responsive icon buttons that open responsive flyouts from different directions. 
  • Sent an offer letter to a visual designer.
  • Designed social posts for Config.
  • Design file handoff and transfer of ownership of a Figma project.
  • Updating Flagrant design portfolio.

What we’re struggling with:

  • Mosquitos.
  • Heat.
  • A wild animal (raccoon?) pooping on the porch.
  • There is something dead in my basement but I can’t find it.
  • whether to try to beat Tears of the Kingdom or just explore forever.
  • The humidity is causing the doors in my house to swell, which is making them VERY difficult to open. 
  • Eating my own spaghetti code.
  • Power and internet outages.
  • Figma settings and ownership hand-off. I have no idea how to help people when there is a yellow “!” even when they have a paid license.
  • Rapidly replenishing ceramics inventory and body soreness from working in the studio.
