Google Design Sprint Kit
We handled all front-end development of the new site design. Our engineers were given a Sketch file. There was a phased approach that we followed. The redesign of the site was expected to go live during the Design Sprint Kit conference.
The Design Sprint Kit team at Google wanted to update their website. Material Design introduced new guidelines and standards. There was also a desire to make the site look and feel more modern. Other teams at Google with similar websites had successfully received an overhaul.
Kai’s team was fully capable of handling the design, but they seeked out a partner that could help them with the development. We were hired to build their new page layouts with the latest version of Angular.
The conference page itself was released with the new site layout before the full site was retrofitted. The previous engineering team used Grow.io to manage the pages. Due to technical requirements, we adopted a blended approach of being able to build Angular pages in parallel to Grow.io.
Google’s team also wanted to have a section that allowed for community members to submit their methods and recipes. Impekable built a custom form that accepted submissions. Methods and recipes are saved into a private Google Sheet, and attachments are stored in Google Drive.
The Design Sprint Kit site went live on the first day of the conference. Positive feedback was received from attendees at the conference. Impekable is now supporting Google through site improvements and preparing for next year’s sprint.
