Context

From 2013 to 2017, I was the primary Interaction Designer/UX Specialist on Capevo XForm, later KMD XForm, a standard platform toolset for creating and operating advanced government-grade web form solutions.

Challenge

How could we offer clients responsive form solution tools with a short time-to-market? The previous version of the KMD XForm editor wasn't built for the age of responsive web design, where form layout automatically adapts to various screen sizes from smartphones to big desktop displays. To meet market and client demands, that is – in essence to ensure company relevance going forward – it was imperative to quickly develop a tool for creating responsive forms.

Process

In the course of a few months, I wireframed and prototyped designs for a completely new advanced code editor. During the entire process including implementation I worked closely with one of our a talented full-stack developers, with both of us contributing valuable ideas.

Outcome

A powerful in-browser code editor with a visual live preview helping our consultants quickly and easily deliver responsive form solutions to clients.
