I worked with Wondersauce on the front-end team for a redesign of GQ.com.

How?

I created prototypes during the design phase, using vanilla HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The final implementation used React and Flux, and I worked with the team to build and implement the new components.

Takeaways

I learned a lot about design systems when working on this project, and how it’s important for component styles to be modular. All of the components needed to function well and look good when used anywhere on the page, not just in specific slots within templates. When I worked on this project in 2015, there weren’t as many styling options for React as there are now, so we name-spaced the component classes, which was a challenge for a project of this size.
