  • While full-time User Interface Designer at Tangora Software (vendor of web content management solutions)
  • 2011

My contribution included

  • Design exploration and concepts
  • Static and click-through mockups
  • Icon design and other graphics
  • Assistance on detailed design
  • Quality assurance

Solution benefits

  • More clear interaction flow / path to completion (Choose Internal page etc., then choose link target and finally click Insert link button)
  • More direct navigation: Segmented control rather than dropdown (Compare Before and After screenshots)
  • Better external consistency (e.g. the semitransparent blue marker background known from Windows Explorer)
