Apple Online Store 2016 iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Launch


Apple 2016 Product Launch

The latest Apple Online Store product launch began for our QA team in mid-August. We would consistently receive new web pages and web page updates that needed to be checked in 41 countries across hundreds of active pages on the website. I was on the team that focused on Quality Assurance for the Apple Online Store for iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 6s/6s Plus updates, and iPhone SE AppleCare updates. This was across multiple segments in Education, Small Business, Corporate Business, and Consumer in multiple languages.

I was also involved in checking the Apple Store App, and the new pages created by our Web Dev and Digital Content management teams. This was focused around iPhone as well. From purchase ability, to menus, to images, to copy, to design, I helped to manually QA each step of the way into cart on the Apple Store App. This included clicking through hundreds of pages in all of the countries we are supporting, and looking in great detail at each piece in order to ensure a perfect customer experience. I did this for the iPhone and iPad versions of the app.

Apple Store App 4.0 Update


Apple Store App 4.0I am on a small Quality Assurance team that evaluated version 4.0 of the Apple Store App in July 2016. During this project, we were each assigned different sections of the application to manually click through and ensure an excellent user experience. This included following merchandising plans and other documentation as a reference.

I was able to assist with multiple accessories pages, Apple TV and Apple Watch pages, and check banners and design. I examined the pages in our 41 active app geolocations in a staging environment. I was also able to implement a checklist for our QA team that enabled everyone to perform their various segments successfully and on time.

It was a software QA project that I enjoyed, and I was able to contribute to our team’s organization and efficiency in a real logistic way. I learned not only how the Apple Store App is built, and functions in depth, but was able to implement the high standards I have been taught at Apple, to a greater degree.

Sue Sheriff Jazz Website Update


Sue Sheriff JazzSue Sheriff has been a client of mine for several years, and her website had previously met her needs. She came to me in March 2016 and asked that we redo the website, as she was releasing a brand new jazz album. She wanted it to reflect the new album, the reviews she had received already, and the future events she had already booked.

Together we worked to add pages to showcase live videos of her songs, reviews of her new album, and more of her recent music. We began to add blog posts for her events, and news. We redid her entire site and added much of the content surrounding her new album.

For this project, I wanted to let Sue take the lead. Her music is her passion, and she loves to sing. I wanted this website to represent her, and the feel of her music. She chose her favorite colors, which also match her business card and the colors of her debut jazz album, and I matched them to the site. I was able to implement a clean design that points to the content, so that Sue and her wonderful jazz can be at the center focus.

Garden House Sober Living Website


Garden House Sober Living

Mobile Garden HouseGarden House Sober Living was a very special project. This is a sober house in Portland, Maine that reaches out to men in need and provides a safe space for them to grow as human beings. This is a place that can offer support for those in recovery, and it was a wonderful place to build a website for.

The design we decided one was one that was calm, and serene. It was key that we chose colors that appealed to someone and an image that could represent the peace that Garden House offers. Because Garden House does not have a brand image yet, we looked through some of my nature photography and chose an image that gave an aura of growth.

It was also important to create an accessible site, so I chose a responsive design for the site and for the intake form. This way any man with a mobile device can get on the website at the suggestion of a mentor or friend and apply.

There were many things that were important about this project, and I was able to successfully collaborate with multiple people at Garden House. We created a great online space to represent their physical place.
