Weft is a platform for custom woven textiles

As the lead UX developer for Weft, I helped create a web-based platform to easily design, visualize, and manufacture woven fabrics.

Based on user research and mockups I generated, I developed a responsive, mobile-first front end for the platform with React and three.js. I programmed the back end CMS and order processing infrastructure in Python, using Django as a DBMS. I contributed to the UX/UI design of the home page, e-commerce site, and supporting documentation, alongside another graphic designer.

I designed and developed a Shopify plugin to embed white-labeled Weft product customization into third-party e-commerce sites.
