Yellow Folder

Skills: HTML, Bootstrap, jQuery

Yellow Folder is like an intelligent file cabinet that helps K-12 school systems go paperless. They provide document scanning services and easy to use online tools to help organizations keep the information they need, and securely destroy what they don’t. Yellow Folder is access to every important document at your fingertips.

This project was slightly outside my skill set, and smaller in scope than usual. That’s not to say Yellow Folder is a small company (they aren’t), they just had a very specific problem and asked if I could help. It’s good to shift gears and work on projects outside your comfort zone, and I jumped at the opportunity. That’s how you grow.

Yellow Folder was readying a new website for launch and wanted an interactive calculator to help web visitors quickly estimate costs. Filling out and submitting forms is kind of 20th century, so I whipped up a Javascript/jQuery calculator for them. This responsive calculator uses a hook to the Google Maps API, calculates mileage, validates all selections, and helps guide users through required fields. The app-like experience gives visitors instant feedback and lets them view different cost scenarios, so they can make an informed decision.
