"GATE was created by Founder Pamela Donnelly and a team of 26 highly experienced educators in the fields of college counseling, GPA support and test prep. Sister company Valley Prep Tutoring spent four years building and testing the curriculum."

Working for this big team all connected from different parts of the world was very exciting and challenging, we all managed ourselves to come up with a wonderful platform which I'm very proud of due the deep use of User Interaction principles and the beauty and simplicity of the execution.

Here, a brief explanation of the process:

 

Client / GATE College System

Role / User Experience Design, Interaction Design, Information Architecture & Visual Design

Duration / 8 months

Tools / Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, Invision.

Team / CEO-Founder, Project Manager, Content Strategist, Development team and me.

Deliverables / Wireframes, high-res mockups, interactive prototype, sitemap, style guide, production assets, brand guide.

 

The main challenge was to compel a lot of data and information into an easy and effective platform for high school students from all over the States.
