Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - DataBook
Client: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Role: UX Design
The Gates Foundation funds an incredible amount of grants. These grants generate vast amounts of valuable data housed in a central repository and accessed via an internal website. A team had been working on the internal website for two years but it had severe usability issues and was not visually appealing. I was called in as a "design ambulance" by an advisor to the CEO to save the front end design and user experience. I architected a new design and then worked with a team of business analysts, program managers, writers and developers to implement the new design.
“Jana did an all-around superlative work on a project for the Gates Foundation.”
