The Marketplace:

Designed + Sold Products [Fundraiser]

To enliven community spirit and generate revenue to lower HOA fees, I designed and sold Middlesex-themed apparel, umbrellas, and beach accessories. However, the team faced challenges from a limited digital presence and uncertain demand. This also resulted in the development of a website for people to view the products, reserve their purchases, and communicate with our group. The website was built in PHP with a MySQL database backend for inventory management. Responsible for communications, I connected both over a dedicated email and through Chatra, a live chat service.

Designed + coded from scratch in the Washington, D.C. area.
