What I do
I design and build mobile, responsive and desktop applications.
Specializing in designing user-centric experiences, simplified navigation concepts and componetized layouts, my preffered methodology is to rapidly prototype for mobile, desktop or responsive applications, enabling the team to gather enough testing data to prove out the hypothesis and reiterate where neccesary, all the while perfecting the design and content to achieve greater margins of success.
In the past I have worked as a consultant with firms in the educational, financial and pharmaceutical industries such as Cengage Learning, Fidelity Management & Resource Company, State Street Global Advisors, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and ADQSR. Outside of large firms, I have also worked with startup ventures like Rapid7, MallNetworks, Wis.dm and Gobi.com.
Cengage Learning: Student Portal
MyCengage was a front-end implemetation project based on an existing design to allow for students to easily purchase the appropriate material for their courses along with supplemental product bundles that were not easily available in the Cengage's system. The html and css were implemented in components to allow for easy implementation and reusability.
The prototype and its associated code can be viewed at https://github.com/jayfallon/mycengage.
Cengage Learning: Component Examples & Documentation
Cengage Magma was the name chosen for Cengage's internal implementation of the Bootstrap CSS framework that enables designers and developers to use and implement both the organization's visual langage and standard code components across multiple projects without the need to reinvent or improvise upon the established standards. This website was created in an effort to provide product and development teams with style and code examples beyond those found in a customized Bootstrap implementation.
The application and its associated code can be viewed at https://github.com/jayfallon/magma-website.
Cengage Learning: Framework Documentation
Magma is Cengage's implementation of the Bootstrap CSS framework, which was chosen due to it's short learning curve, large user base and ease of integration into both existing and new applications. Magma was created in an effort to standardize Cengage's approach to component design while facilitating development, implementation and testing.
The application and its associated code can be viewed at https://github.com/jayfallon/magma-framework.
Cengage Learning: 4LTR Press Online Learning
4LTR Press Online is a Cengage product for students who are looking for a high-value, low-cost solution. While utilizing Cengage's core licensed content, it is an entirely separate solution managed and developed outside of the company's traditional workflow. My responsibilities included extensive development to the existing codebase along with providing design solutions and implementation for multiple components for the platform.
