The Task

For one of our major projects in our graduate web design course, graduate students from the web design class and the user interface class from the computer science department were paired up to develop concepts for and academic-based social media platform.

The Solution

The Roundrock computer science students and I chose to take the concept of a folded map and apply it to the website’s interface. The sidebar was designed to fold up and out of the way as a user was interacting with the site.

Working with a group outside of the design community was an enjoyable, and eye opening experience. The interdisciplinary group work would reveal many ideas that would later be applied to my thesis work.
