In support of our local design community, we worked with agency partner Sevnthsin to develop a site for Minnesota Emerging Designers – an AIGA affiliate organization for designers making the leap from school to the wider world of professional design.
Minneapolis interactive agency Sevnthsin had done all of the graphic design for the site in great detail by the time we got involved. By we, we basically mean Gillian Reynolds, who poured herself into the task of implementing their Photoshop files and building the site's functionality in the Zend Framework.
Gillian said this quickly became a pet project to her – with a heightened level of personal ownership. During one long weekend stint of programming near the launch deadline, she worked right through The Nerdery’s Super Bowl party, leaving her desk just to catch the commercials.
Sevnthsin threw a launch party that was super fun -- people hanging out had a really positive reaction to the site, including board members. It looked and worked great.
