Max Snitser
UX/UI Designer
My role was to design the mobile application. Columbia Law School already had a Web interface for managing students, teachers, classes and a lot more online features but they didn’t have a mobile application for those. My goal was to create the design for their needs, taking into account web interface. Columbia Law School web interface was old, so the main point in this project was to re-think a lot of interface solutions, place them on mobile screen and provide a simple interaction between users and system.
