    Project Summary

    My assignment was to make a new design for the web based user area based on the graphical profile from one of ChessIT's clients. The design had to be light in terms of changes, as the project had hard deadlines. I worked with the client and the developers to find a balance between the two that satisfied the requirements and respected the time constraints.

    I also worked with ChessIT to create new icons for their solution and create a design guide for future design work. Furthermore, I assisted with designing a signup form for another client. I also designed the UI for a second system for that same client. These designs I then also ended up coding as well, with focus on CSS and HTML structures.

    Deliverables in the project:

    • Design in Sketch and later in Figma
    • Client meetings to discuss the designs
    • A new UI for a signup form for another client
    • A new UI for a second system design
    • HTML/CSS for the signup form and the second system
    • Custom Icons
    • Design guideline

    Customer Value

    I took the existing design and enhanced it within the time constraints. The design was defined together with the client, that on many occasions expressed their appreciation of the new design and how it made the experience working with the system more enjoyable. I helped out with development of HTML and CSS on short notice, as well as UI design for a new customer that was much appreciated by ChessIT.

      It is not often you get to work in a project where the Agile way of working actually works, but this was one of those. It worked because both ChessIT and the client had the Agile mindset and more importantly had a collaborative and respectful attitude.

      Even when things did not go as planned there was no blame going around and no bad attitude. Just a sense of "how do we solve this in the best way" from both ChessIT and the client. As a designer I can say that the client was one of the most satisfying to work with because of their amazing attitude and guidance.

      Even if they did not really knew exactly what they wanted, they had a pretty good idea of roughly what they wanted. That made it easy for me to visualize. They also provided feedback in a constructive and respectful way, making the adjustments and iterations positive and enjoyable.

      ChessIT is a small company with a big heart. It is an amazing combination and the people working there make it even more so.
