MAKING A WEBSITE
This is a great place to add a tagline.
I worked closely with my web developer to decide on the layout of how copy would be placed and how we wanted responsive interfaces to behave with an end user. I created a template with filler text and sent it off to the web developer.
Because this web app would include transactions, I wanted to make the website as clean and trustworthy as possible, including just enough white space to make HabitU look just as established as any other tech company. I based the website design on the logo itself, making sure to include white space, mirror the color schemes, incorporate the curves and personality of the logo, and create a universal feeling to HabitU's brand.
Launch is in early 2018.

The goal for the first week was to decide on a product to develop, so we started out by looking at what kind of products Quirky manufactures, then brainstorming every problem regarding any hosting event.
We took two days to list off every problem we could think of- one day to brainstorm together and another to think individually and propose some solutions. We made sure to cover all definitions of the word "party" whether it is an all night rager, an elegant dinner, or a child's birthday.
A day later, we reconvened and discussed solutions we liked the best as well as which problems were repeated the most among the four of us, just in case we missed something and had to go back a step. These problems ranged from dishes piling up to making sure the host has a way to greet everyone.
My group ended up having six solutions we all liked, so in order to decide which solution to choose, we voted on the solutions. The idea with the most votes was my solution, Extension Tape.
My thoughts behind what Extension Tape should be is a flat extension cord with an adhesive backing that can be reused. Thus the cord can be run under rugs and tables without the worry of tripping. In addition, users could adhere the tape to the walls, making portable ceiling lighting easy to power.
