UX Capstone Project

During the final year of the Bachelor of Science in Information program, students are placed into teams and paired with real-life clients. My group had the honor of working with the Art Institute of Chicago to redesign their Ryerson & Burnham archival website.

The Ryerson & Burnham archives hold architectural photos, blueprints, sketches, and more related materials. The goal of this project was to update and modernize the archival site so that users can conduct research effectively.

I loved this project because I learned a lot about my strengths as a designer and had the opportunity to help lead our team to success. This is not only my favorite project but also my proudest accomplishment because our team won runner-up out of all 18 School of Information capstone projects. I am incredibly proud of what our team accomplished and look forward to building a career doing what I love.
