Bluebeam's website redesign was a massive ground-up rebuild and replatforming. As the lead developer, I established coding best practices for the team, setup a proper workflow and deploy process, and leveraged Grav CMS to simplify the platform and increase speed, security, and scalability. The Bluebeam website is localized for 13 different languages using Smartling's GDN service.
Bluebeam's website had previously been filled with mixed design patterns and was incredibly hard to manage. I knew we needed to establish consistency and build things the right way, so I worked with a designer to create the company's first design system. From that, I built out a custom front-end framework that's been used on a variety of Bluebeam's online properties. The workshop area is built with Jekyll, and the storefront is built on zeroheight.
Leading the front-end development of the Media Temple website redesign was one of the most rewarding projects I've ever worked on. Working closely with our internal creative team as well as the talented designers of Character in San Fransisco, I developed a mobile-first front-end framework and started the company's first internal living style guide and design system.
Though it was among the better looking admin dashboards in the web hosting space, a redesign of (mt)'s Account Center was long overdue. Used by over 150,000 customers, it was one of the most daunting projects I've ever been a part of. It required extensive research and planning, modernizing code on 450+ pages, and countless iterations.
