  • Started thinking about how to best frame our next epicycle of work.
  • Prevent the user from completing inspections on ‘archived’ inspection forms within MyMomentum.
  • Improvements to the MyMomentum Training ‘show’ page that greatly reduce the pages load time. 
  • Designed a logomark for an existing client brand.
  • Reduced page load time for a critical page in our app by over a third.
