Fantastic opportunity to work and live in Shanghai, China. I spent my time working with client teams on research, presentation preparation and an intern based project which focused on the role of foreign education for Chinese nationals and it's impact on domestic company performance.
I coordinated the product development phase of the SkillPages 2.0 project. This project involved bringing together 2 years of testing, learning and community requests in to a completely redesigned UI and UX.
Both Tony O'Donohoe and Reiner Wendland's hard work and innovative design style were crucial in achieving this goal.
The "What is SkillPages?" Video
Today was the debut of our new "What is SkillPages?" video. The video is the product of www.epipheostudios.com. On the SkillPages side, @[2568636a-27b5-11df-b1a2-00155d010212|imd|Iain Mac Donald] and I worked closely with them throughout the process.
Epipheo are highly experienced in delivering professional productions in a short space of time and this video is no exception. Their tried and tested methodology proved once again that a thoughtful and explorative "discovery phase" combined with structure and progress targets will result in a product everyone is happy with.
