The Gap In The Market


KBC, one of Belgium's biggest banking institutions wanted to help do its bit to rejuvenate the struggling economy. We created a crowd-sourced platform to help them do this.

The idea that was pitched was to create a robust platform for gathering crowd-sourced information as to the state of the local economy, so KBC could identify which business proposals had the highest chance of succeeding in the troubled economic climate.

I helped conceive and optimize the site's information architecture, prototyped the application to help sell the client on the idea, and I coded the site's front-end.
