Communicode was a start-up project that used machine learning to connect developers and designers with non-profit organizations in need of a digital update. Designers and developers would be matched with non-profit organizations based on their interests and skills, or they could browse projects posted by non-profits.
A large part of my role at Communicode outside of designing and prototyping screens involved creating and maintaining a style guide to be presented to key stakeholders. This was essential to hold a diverse group together in the earliest stages of our product.
My work on Communicode was one of my first public experiences with web development and UI/UX. Although I'd worked on smaller freelance and personal projects, it was my first time working with something involving a large team (20-30 people) and stakeholders. I learned how to communicate across teams, create a product based on user needs, and design with two very different user bases in mind (tech-savvy people and specifically not tech-savvy people).
