About BORN

BORN is the world’s largest digital trade fair for design-led lifestyle products. It exists to give you the platform and audience to launch your products and tell the world your brand story. The site connects people who make beautiful products with those who love them. For it’s audience, beauty comes in many different forms across many categories, but no matter the style, it’s about perfection and innovation where design meets functionality. Never form over function or function over form – Born team wants to showcase your products and stories to the world.

The client was looking for an agile team with expertise in React.js to develop and maintain their marketplace.

The project included working on Born’s two business units: the BORN Awards website, and BORN.com. For the website, it was necessary to gather candidates, nominees, and winners so we developed a feature that allows the uploading of text, video, and pictures, as well as geolocation to allow custom content for users in different countries. For the platform, we implemented password-protection and created a dashboard where brands can easily upload text, images, and videos to showcase their products.
