During my time at Nordstrom I built interactive widgets for the retail site as a main staple but I also got the opportunity to work with the creative department, putting my WordPress theming skills to work. I themed their single blog at the time, The Thread, with the Thesis SEO theme and helped them launch four new blogs with using that same theme.
Another large part of my job was building high fidelity prototypes for the UX team. The prototypes were then used during usability testing with actual customers. I learned a lot from the experience of watching the customers react to things like infinite scrolling and parallax scrolling.
