codeRIT Hackathon

June 2020-Present

UI/UX design for RIT's hackathon club.

The Club

CodeRIT is Rochester Institute of Technology's premier hackathon club. It is a community of students who like to make things. They empower all RIT students, especially newcomers, with the tools and knowledge necessary to become successful makers.

The Hackathon

BrickHack 7

A hackathons is a venue for self-expression and creativity through technology. People with technical backgrounds come together, form teams around a problem or idea, and collaboratively code a unique solution from scratch — these generally take shape in the form of websites, mobile apps, and robots.

Schedule Component Design

As a designer I worked closely with the design and engineering team to strategize the BrickHack 7 website. The schedule element is an important section for visitors to get information clearly and quickly.

Time Card Iterations

'In-progress' Iterations

We needed to figure out how it looks when two events overlap

Guidelines for Engineering

I had to provide as clear of information as possible to the engineers so designs would be built accurately and the process would move along quicker

Mobile Schedule Observation

After one meeting with engineering, we realized we needed a mobile view to make this design responsive. I took a look at how other conferences designed the mobile schedule view.

Collapsed View Iterations

There needed to be an expanded and collapsed view to avoid getting trapped in a continuous scroll on the mobile view.

FINAL

After more meetings and iterations we came to the final design. It is currently being coded by the engineers and will soon be viewable on the site.

The design team and I are still working closely with engineering to build the full BrickHack 7 website and completely redesign the CodeRIT club website.
