CREAFOTO: Digital album creator
Overview 
GBG is a reference photo printing solutions company in the market, 
with 20 years of experience. Creafoto emerges as an ambitious 
idea of being a platform that offers options for creating online photography 
products, in desktop or mobile.
Problem statement 
Due to the low demand for photo development and album sales, 
emerges an opportunity that so far did not exist in Uruguay. 
The goal is to create a platform in where users can create their own photography 
designs taking advantage of digital photography.

Users and audience
The current GBG audience is the professional photographer, with Creafoto it is intended 
to reach the amateur, the user who takes pictures with his mobile phone.

Roles and responsabilities
My role in the project is UIUX Design. The rest of the team is made up of two developers an intern graphic designer of GBG and the owner of the company.

Scope and constraints
The team initially had only one developer, who due to personal problems left the project. 
Two colleagues of mine joined the project immediately, and the budget had to be increased and a large part of the backend had to be redone.
In the middle the scope changed, but instead of panic, we take that opportnity to build something better.

Technology
Wordrpress, WooCommerce
