During my tenure at NVWA, I held a pivotal role in building interactive quizzes for both students and marketing purposes, integrating them into our website. On a weekly basis, I received sets of questions and answers from the content team, where I curated the content, sourced appropriate images for cover pages and questions, and crafted the quizzes. The final step was grabbing the JaveScript code and embedding the each quiz into a dedicated web page, ensuring a seamless user experience.
As we continued to enhance our website and grow as an organisation, it became evident that users desired a centralised hub to access and select quizzes based on their preferred topics. I proposed and contributed to the development of a user-friendly page that provided users with an array of quizzes to choose from, catering to their specific interests and learning objectives.
In addition, I often work with the Operations team to troubleshoot / solve UX issues, create wireframes and more. Early on in my employment I had the opportunity to contribute to the 2021 web design wireframes and mockups. While I didn’t have the final say on the user experience part, I made sure to infuse some design magic, ensuring that everything looked visually appealing and functional.
Link to Outlier’s website. I oversaw the art direction for the website design initially, while a contractor used WordPress theme chosen by Outlier’s founder to start building the site. I soon took over the development to speed things up. I estimate that I did about 85% of the building (in WordPress using the theme features plus some additional HTML / CSS) and 95% of the design.
In addition to overseeing and doing most of the development for Outlier’s newly rebranded website, I built several pages within the site based on contemporary Outlier marketing material documents that I designed.
I worked with the team for copy and content, then I created the layout and graphic assets for these white-papers. Once the design was approved, I created pages in WordPress to match the white-paper, so the content would be easy to read and interactive.
