Portfolio

Kaboom

KaBOOM!

KaBOOM! is a national non-profit that empowers communities to build playgrounds. KaBOOM! had an extensive web presence already in place when they contacted us. They came to Viget needing better online collaboration tools that would integrate seamlessly with their existing site. We created the Project Planner application, which allows KaBOOM! members to start or join a project, view recent activity, keep a team journal, post photos and files, and have discussions with other team members. Project team leaders also have “mile markers” that outline incremental goals to keep the build process on track. We also built the Plan a Play Day application, which provides KaBOOM! members with an online toolkit for planning a Play Day and lets others find and join Play Days. When developing both applications, we focused on making it easy for users to connect, share, and give feedback.

Spoonflower

Spoonflower

This NC-based start-up came to us in 2008 with their idea — to print custom designs on fabric — but needed an interactive site to accommodate their unique company’s purpose. We built a custom application in Ruby on Rails to manage users’ image uploads and made user experience recommendations, as well.

Since they went public in October 2008, they have helped more than 50,000 users make 100,000 designs and place nearly 3,000 orders of their own custom fabric.

But, beyond the application itself, we were proud to provide transition services to help Spoonflower’s internal team manage the site. We led peer programming efforts over several weeks to train Spoonflower’s technical staff on the way the site was built so they could continue to extend its roots for future generations.

Odeo

Odeo

When Odeo first launched in 2005, initially a podcast aggregation service, it quickly grew to support hundreds of thousands of users. When a new investment team purchased the site in 2007, they needed a team that could rework the user experience, redesign the interface, and rebuild the Ruby on Rails code base. The new site, launched out of beta in July of 2008, now includes video content, a custom search tool, and improvements to both the interface and technology infrastructure.
