Akamai Technologies is the world's largest cloud delivery network. Akamai's focus is to make sure people can use the internet in a fast, reliable and secure way.
As a UX design intern (Summer 2014), I developed design guidelines for their Akamai Developer website redesign. I produced and implemented high-fidelity visual designs focusing on readability for desktop, web and mobile devices. I worked in collaboration with engineers to ensure project requests could be met and presented to cross-functional teams in design reviews.
The project had an aggressive deadline of a couple months to be shipped. I collaborated closely with two engineers to launch the changes to the visuals providing high-fidelity mockups, specs, and assets on a consistent basis as elements were designed.
As a result of this experience, I learned how to communicate my design decisions effectively, as well as learning how to communicate with developers to get visual implemented smoothly. Working on the developer website also allowed me to better understand what services Akamai offered as a company.
The project is currently public on https://developer.akamai.com/
