The ArtWeCan.com Web site was born out of an inspiration by contemporary urban artist, Phetus, to create art pieces inspired by Barack Obama’s campaign for President of the United States, with the intent to auction the pieces and donate the proceeds to the campaign.
Working directly with the artist to define the requirements, the site was put on fast track, rapid-prototype and was created within days. I developed the wire frames laying out the site’s user interface, worked with our graphics team on the site’s theme and implemented the site’s content strategy. Because of the rapid development required, the associated PDF does not contain descriptive notes. Using an agile process, I managed development through email, IM and Basecamp.
