SourceForge is one of the most popular websites for finding free and open source projects, as well as business software. The following projects were completed for SourceForge.net:

I. CONSUMER REVIEW WIDGET REDESIGN

I. CONSUMER REVIEW WIDGET REDESIGN

The goal of this project was to redesign the consumer review widget to be displayed on the software billboard pages.

Competitive Analysis: I completed a competitive analysis to compare our current review widget with competitive software listing sites as well as other widely-known websites with popular review widgets including Yelp and Amazon'.

Mobile Adaptability: The current design was not mobile adaptive, and the redesign must be a mobile responsive design.
