Looking ahead, I’m excited to be diving further into my capstone topic over the course of co-op, as well as continue form-making into the beginning of spring semester. I explored a variety of organization methods for my UX portion, to which I believe I am now focusing on a timeline-like…

This week I am beginning to finalize my plans for next semester, attached with my Gantt chart above. I will be primarily focusing on two main components: a branded identity and campaign alongside a digital resource that will act as a guide for the targeted users for the campaign, that…
