Nick Penney


Lead UX Developer

October 2015 — 2018

Weft is a platform for custom woven textiles

As the lead UX developer for Weft, I analyzed our user research and created user flows, wireframes, and high-fidelity mockups for the fabric design portion of the site. I also contributed to the UX/UI design of the home page, shop, and supporting documentation, alongside another graphic designer.

Based on those mockups, I developed the front end for the site using React.js and LESS, on top of Node.js. The back end and CMS for the site are written in Python with Django as a DBMS, and the renderer is WebGL-based, with a C++ back end.
