I feel the need...the need for speed
I had about a month between the time the scholarship was announced, and its submission deadline. In that time I had to design and physically prototype a flight bag -- but I also needed to put together its supporting website, which I envisioned as multiple pages and a fair amount of content. This also all needed to happen in my spare time! So instead of spending cycles designing a UI from scratch, I went back to my old faithful: the US Web Design System. USWDS is flexible enough to let me get online quickly, without sacrificing too much in terms of aesthetics or usability. The entire site went up in about twenty hours over my winter break, and most of that time was spent considering the information architecture, taking pictures and writing.
