A responsive site built around hand-picked news and entertainment served to all
Starbucks customers accessing the free, in-store Wi-Fi.

Lead Front-end Developer
This version of the site is no longer online.
The intent of this site was to enhance the customer’s in-store
experience by providing exclusive content curated from a number of partners, including the Wall Street
Journal, New York Times, Zagat, and Apple.
Originally the site was designed and developed with separate “desktop” and “mobile” sites
on a custom, hard-to-update content management system.
Following the success of the responsive re-design of
starbucks.com, the original version of this site was
rebuilt from the ground up using a responsive, mobile-first approach. In addition, it was moved
into the same enterprise
CMS that runs the main Starbucks global suite of sites.
I was responsible for the front-end development, collaborated with information architects on the functionality,
and designed some of the site in the browser.
