We recently helped ITV News launch apps for iOS and Android, a project that involved some pretty creative methods for getting maximum results in a short space of time. We went from wireframes to launch in nine weeks of build time, using a full-time team of one designer (me) and one developer (Raffi Jacobs), with support at various stages in design and development, project management, research and testing.
Back in April, when ITV News first suggested the idea of making a news app, we asked Why? We had doubts that an app was the best way to invest in News. But after a quick round of investigating options and potential returns, and then 9 weeks of rapid design and development, we delivered two apps, not one.

At MxM NYC our team has redesigned, recoded, and restructured our client’s global e-commerce website twice within the past year.

And they loved it, even though it was terrible. The whole episode was, by all accounts, insane.
