Work Samples

Applications, websites, & design systems

We love what we do, we do great work, and we have a track record of happy clients to show for it.

Adobe Fonts

This was such a fun project to work on with @TypeTasting, @OddBird & my @AdobeFonts colleagues.

Typographic Superpower Game

– A meditation on typography

A meditation on typography, Adobe Fonts’ Game allows players to choose the fonts that they feel apply best to different scenarios. Players’ input helps Adobe Fonts continue to improve on their new browse-by-tags feature. We worked closely with Adobe to create animated & interactive illustrations using GreenSock, NuxtJS, and CSS

Shopify

We take submissions from our team, and Miriam was a highly desired expert we wanted to learn from! I really appreciated the different topics you presented as options to best talk to our internal audience.

Shopify UX Summer Series

– Asynchronous CSS training with Q&A

Shopify is a popular e-commerce platform for building & hosting online stores and retail systems. We provided Shopify UX with custom CSS training videos based on the needs & interests of their team, with a follow-up Q&A.

Aunalytics

The Workflow Builder project met and exceeded expectations. The project was finished in budget and on time, and we were super excited to get the outcome we did.

Workflow Builder

– Tools for data analytics

Aunalytics provides a full suite of data-analytics and management tools. The “workflow builder” is an embedded Vue application allowing data scientists to visually create and navigate through data flows of various kinds. The interface is an integration between standard HTML and an interactive SVG canvas, built with D3.

Some of our developers are junior, and we appreciated the opportunity to work with senior developers at OddBird. We all learned from that experience.

Expression Builder

– Tools for data analytics

Aunalytics provides a full suite of data-analytics and management tools, including the Aunsight Dataflow service. The “expression builder” is an embedded Vue application allowing users to create and update the dataflows using a visual UI that describes data transformation without having to write code. Advanced users can also edit flows…

Mozilla

Are you following @MiriSuzanne yet? She’s amazing. I’m so lucky to get to work with her on this video series & more.

Mozilla Developer Channel

– Videos, articles, & tools for web professionals

We worked with Mozilla Developer Relations to research & address developer needs around open web standards, CSS features, accessibility, Firefox, and developer tools. Over the course of six months, we released 30 videos to nearly twenty thousand subscribers.

I consider Mozilla’s MozTrap to be one of the best open source test case management systems out there.

MozTrap

– Distributed quality assurance tools

Mozilla’s next-generation test case management system, MozTrap manages extensive test suites for all of Mozilla’s software products (including Firefox, Thunderbird, Firefox OS, and others), and allows community testers from around the world to run tests on their system and report results back to Mozilla, which MozTrap aggregates into reports for…

CFOshare

OddBird is very pleasant to work with and responsive. I’m not an expert in web development, so I really appreciated that.

CFOshare Website

– WordPress CMS & responsive design

OddBird helped CFOshare transition their marketing site to WordPress CMS – implementing the brand, migrating content, optimizing responsive images, and training CFOshare staff in continued maintenance.

Salesforce.org

Working with OddBird was the best outsourcing experience I’ve ever had. It didn’t feel like outsourcing at all.

MetaDeploy

– Salesforce product installer

MetaDeploy helps nonprofit Salesforce admins and developers configure, install, and test packaged products – providing a graphic web interface for tasks and flows previously handled in the command-line. Admins can select from available products like the Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) or Education Data Architecture (EDA), to install on one of…

Second Measure

OddBird was quick to learn and pick up new technologies. They delivered high quality code, and delivered on time.

Second Measure

– React design system & component library

Second Measure provides a daily view into company performance & consumer behavior data. We were hired to help organize the code and design systems into a reusable and fully documented React component library and integrated design system.

Tegy

OddBird is high-caliber and nimble. Innovative at heart. Together, we fundamentally transformed the Chicago public school system.

TimeDesigner

– Whole-School Design Thinking & Scheduling

Tegy TimeDesigner helps school teams easily create multiple scheduling scenarios from various perspectives, and plan ahead for future iterations. Currently the software is only available to schools in Tegy training programs.

Lab06

Other developers build exactly what you say, or they don’t understand, and develop the wrong thing. OddBird always thinks about the project goals. I defer to the team expertise now, which makes a better result.

MedCurbside

– Knowledge-sharing for clinical physicians

MedCurbside was started by practicing physicians who want a more modern way to connect with good literature and the clinical knowledge in the healthcare community. The site helps clinicians exchange questions and answers with other clinicians – connecting visitors with evidence, facilitating quick progression from question to answer, curating the…

Carleton College

The first meeting I had with Miriam helped me decide. She was excited about the project but also realistic about potential issues with the codebase.

Emmy’s Workshop

– Individualized algebra tutor

Emmy’s Workshop is part of a research project to improve computer-based educational systems. Learners can work through an entire problem before receiving feedback. Mathematical algorithms analyze how the problem was solved, and estimate how well the learner understands a variety of mathematical skills. Students and faculty built the application using…

SRAM/Quarq

A mobile-friendly design that will let users see the live tracking and performance data, even on the go, making it easy to connect up with others while out on a ride.

Mobile view of a bike ride path, along with ride metrics
We worked closely with the Quarq team and active users – iterating on the design and functionality to give athletes, friends, family, coaches, and colleagues easy access to location and statistics in real time.

Just like the Quarq power meters changed the playing field for power measurement, this new technology is going to change the way people watch races.

Quarq Race Intelligence

– Real-time race analytics

Quarq Race Intelligence captures and interprets race performance and state-of-play information, and delivers that data in real time to spectators, commentators, race officials, third-party analysis software and visualization tools. Integrating with Quarq’s telemetry and reporting hardware, the app shows racers’ positions, direction, speed, heart-rate, and a number of other statistics…

ORCAS

OddBird really changed my thinking about how successful remote development can be. We were able to hire them as a complete team, ready to start adding value immediately, working as closely as an internal team.

CoachHub

– Responsive platform for integrated health coaching

A custom application we designed and developed with the ORCAS team – integrating their suite of self-management tools.
