Recent Launch: Mr. B's Gentlemen's Boutique for ALDO

Back in September, I had the pleasure working with Alex Nemroff (Interactive Designer) and Daniel Wright (Front-end Developer) at Dynamo on Mr. B's Gentlemen's Boutique, a new product line for ALDO Shoes. A tribute to Aldo Bensadoun, this project is dear to everybody's hearts at ALDO and I think we have made them proud. I was responsible for the setup and customizations to Refinery CMS, including the development of an extension to manage the catalog.

I always have a great timing working on projects Alex leads. He always gets us involved in all aspects of the project and the end result really does feel like a team effort. My favourite times throughout the project is sitting down together at the end of an iteration, reviewing what we have done, and what we can do to improve it in the next iteration. And it doesn't hurt to have a power house like Daniel on the front-end. He really knows his stuff.

Below is a video of the post-mortem at Dynamo, where Alex and myself talk about lessons learned throughout project. Unfortunately, we didn't capture the screen when recording this session (whoops, working on that), but I think you will find the discussion insightful. Please checkout the screenshots below, better yet, visit the site and checkout some beautiful shoes.
