Our Task


Website development and content creation. Prior to Gearbox’s launch I shifted their website from an unmaintainable CMS (content management system) with the assistance of the iHub UXLab to WordPress. During the month long contract I wrote multiple blogs and coordinated the production of a series of short videos along with structuring the website and creating content.
