Wall Street Journal Custom Studios
The Wall Street Journal Custom Studios needed to generate customizable microsites content editors could design.
We built a sophisticated CMS tool for Editors to design and build microsites. The platform deployed into their existing platform, but provided more customizable features.
The tool was built from the ground up in React, GraphQL and MongoDB. We defined a series of modules which could be styled as well placed as desired on pages. Pages could be grouped together to make a multi page experience. At the microsite level users could define the grid, fonts, and other theming used throughout.
Project released: 2017My responsibilities included client relationship, resourcing, technology leadership, documentation, defining the techonlogy framework, frontend/backend development, client handoff and site architecture.
