About the project

The existing site was moved from Ruby to Gatsby/Sanity with a redesign from the client’s side (delivered in Figma). Sanity was selected to enable to clients to maintain and add content themselves without requiring someone technical to make code updates.

Challenges primarily involved building from a design that was not quite development-ready. I took the "block types" that had been identified by the client and reconfigured them in Figma so that looked more like a modular system for both Sanity and Gatsby. In doing so, I gave a LOT of thought to how, beyond this project, design can better feed into the development process for both the data structure and code sides. I have plans to mock up a dummy project in Figma to outline the difference between a design that's ready for development vs. not, and how to bridge the gap.
