JumboCode is a student-run Tufts University club that designs and builds custom technology for Boston-area non-profits, free of charge. Founded in 2015, the organization has two main goals: to support local communities in social and civic endeavors, and to empower young developers and designers with the technological skills needed to excel in their careers. Following two years of success and growth, I was brought in to help upgrade the organization’s website and overall identity to better reflect its mission and newfound prestige.
My team and I remade JumboCode into a recognizable, professional, and inviting organization — one that both attracted new students to the club and instilled trust in prospective clients. Over the course of a semester we built a robust identity for the club, and used this new framework to redesign and rebuild the existing JumboCode website.
In the following semesters, I became a project manager for another website redesign, before finally being elected Head of Design for the entire organization during my senior year. While my original designs for the JumboCode website were ultimately replaced with a framework that’s much easier to maintain, my work on the club’s branding as Head of Design is still in use today.
