As part of the Myplanet Fellowship program, I worked with a team of designers and developers on building this site, following principles of agile development and user-centered design. Initially paired with a furniture retailer in Toronto, we created the Alternativ site as a way to address a problem that potential customers are unaware of most furniture brands, beyond the big Swedish chain.
I acted as product manager, ensuring that our goals were met each week. In addition, I worked on content creation (copywriting and graphic design of image assets), developed surveys to conduct user research, and created the SQL database to store all of the furniture information.
