USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN
Opening doors and creating new beginnings for small-college students
This project was completed as part of my remote internship with The Commons in Milwaukee, WI.
There are approximately 5300 colleges in the United States that offer a bachelor's degree or higher. Over 4000 of those colleges have less than 5000 students. Most of these small colleges are not very well known. They have fewer employer visits since most companies only visit big schools. This lack of opportunities causes students to feel disadvantaged as they enter the job market.
Janus Collegiate offers an interactive platform for students in small colleges who are frustrated with not getting as much attention in the industry due to the fact that they come from a small college. Janus combines all the features seen scattered throughout competitors' platforms while also catering exclusively to small colleges.
This project lasted 6 weeks.
My primary roles were graphic design and information architecture.
