MSU Libraries

Read a Post Mortem memo, brief, summarizing my work as a Project Manager, Researcher, and Visual Designer, on contract, for Michigan State University Libraries to propose a homepage redesign based on conducted research over 10 weeks. Elements of the redesign were implemented in the, later, deployed design refresh of the site.

Lessons learned

How to lead in a UX project, manage other team members and proceed in a professional manner that meets deadlines. A challenge we faced was interpretation of our communications to stakeholders by certain, other, stakeholders. We learned to be precise, neutral, and to write as professionally and concise as possible. Being able to convey design and strategy well and effectively is a critical tool and talent I am developing and glad I picked up on early.
