I worked as a digital user experience design intern for Blue State Digital in the spring of 2012. I learned lots of things from my mentor Anne Hjortshoj (whose name I can now spell flawlessly) such as:
- creating wireframes using MS Visio for internal communication
- best practices for designing web applications
- information architecture
- talking to developers in their natural habitat
- how to sit through really long teleconference meetings
The work I did during this time period is still covered by an NDA. But feel free to drop me an email if you’d like to talk about my experience at BSD!
