The Takeaway

In nearly ten weeks I took the full journey of working with a client from start to finish. I learned how to listen to the challenges proposed and turned them into a complete product with a collective vision. Understanding clients may be difficult at times, and the process of wireframing in its entirety may be overwhelming, but the end result will always be satisfying.
