Fragrance recommendations based on the real-life experience

Design experiment/research. Candidates learned their chances to be invited for an interview, hiring managers found new employees and learned from each other, while I've got a cool data set to analyze and make a useful tool.

Part One. Research: experiment setup, process and outcomes

Manhattan Grid CSS framework

I've built this website from scratch while experimenting with CSS Grid layouts and Custom Properties (variables).

The framework supports Dark theme, mobile devices, and I paid attention to accessibility and loading speed. It was also a challenge to build semantic HTML.

CSS Grids is a powerful technology that makes previous grid-based frameworks kind of obsolete. Grids are available for 93.75% of all users (as of June 18, 2020), and it feels like it is safe to use them nowadays.

I still use the word 'framework' because of pre-built blocks that I combined and modified to build this website quicker. (Blocks, grid, I live on Manhattan — hence the name.)

Semantic web, accessibility, DRY, modern technology — I see them essential in the design process, that's why I was curious to build this thing.
