Shipping product against odds

My first interactive product consisted of I designing the user interface to a touch-screen kiosk for Switzerland’s World Watch & Clock Fair in Basel. In order for the team and I to deliver on the opening of this renowned international event, the last leg of the project required us to work 72 consecutive hours.

I never imagined I would have to work that hard, but we believed we had no choice but to succeed. To this day, I recall what that protracted focus felt like. It taught me the commitment it takes to ship product. It also gave me confidence to take on challenging projects later.
