UI/UX design for RIT's hackathon 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.
A hackathon 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
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.

Thought At Work
Collapsed View Iterations
There needed to be an expanded and collapsed view to avoid getting trapped in a continuous scroll on the mobile view.
Expanded View Iterations
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.
