*Hogarth Worldwide is one of the fastest growing companies in the UK. Acting as the production hub for fellow WPP agencies (JWT, Ogilvy, Grey) and its own clients (Nike, HSBC, Burberry, Dior, HTC etc) its rapid success has seen it grow from 12 – 2000 employees in just 5 years, with over 18 offices around the world.
Santander :: Student Mentoring Network
Whilst at Hogarth I was responsible for overseeing the UX and Development of a new Student Portal for Santander that allows students to team up with mentors and allows them to gain work experience. The platform I chose was BuddyPress and great care was taken to ensure that the User Journeys and User Experience was married exactly to the BuddyPress platform ensuring massive efficiencies within the build. The site has lots of functionality including video uploads, YouTube channels, twitter feeds, private and public messages, secure areas etc. I also had to meet the client on numerous occasions to discuss the projects ongoing developments.
