Gnar also led the visual design for the Discussion app to ensure broad engagement across this community, adding custom design off the Discourse default styling.
Conference Room Booking Application
This application also introduced a token economy to be used to book conference rooms at Workbar locations and Staples-Workbar co-locations. This Ruby on Rails and Angular application was embedded within the Workbar platform.
The Gnar Company designed and developed a responsive web application which offers an integrated platform for Workbar members to communicate with one another in real-time. This effort included the development of user stories to understand the business logic and the value proposition to Workbar members, as well as wireframes of user flows within the application to understand core features and help uncover edge cases. To this end, the Gnar team utilized Discourse, an open source forum discussion platform with a Rails back-end and Ember front-end, with a custom plug-in.
