Content Watch wanted their web admin portal to be responsive, giving to the user the appropriate display of the portal to the appropriate device and screen dimension. The main requirement of this application responsiveness was that the HTML remain constant between form factors and platforms with the CSS modifying the appearance of it between form factors and platforms. This meant that design had to be very aware of changing floats, displays, margins, and other CSS attributes.
The Manage Users area demonstrates how a basic design can be easily manipulated and modified with very little difference other than a change in sizes.
The Individual User Management page gives a better picture of the amount of reorganization of elements that would have to be accomplished with CSS. Being aware of that requirement helped to guide the design changes between form factors and platforms.
Getting my start as a creative professional after college in design for print, I have participated in projects that range from Catalogs, Magazines, Ads, Product Packaging, Posters, to Products themselves among other things. I have served in the creative direction role at photo shoots, voiceover sessions, etc. I have performed numerous press checks. Print samples are to come online, but are currently available for view in person.
While print is not my current creative focus, it is my first love. The textures of paper and the smell of fresh ink, along with the late night press checks are all part of my creative experience and will always hold a special place in my heart.
