Paper Trails

Co-created with my brother Jake, Paper Trails is an online app which allows you to create memorable art prints from your Strava/GPX data of your most treasured adventures and achievements.

I built the front and back ends myself while both of us worked on the UX together. The whole experience of setting up and launching a new business on the side has been incredibly rewarding.

On the technical side of things, the front-end consists of React, Redux, Sagas, Storybook, Mapbox, Jest for TDD and React Snap for pre-rendered static pages. The back-end is a custom-built REST API written in PHP using Laravel (Lumen). Payments are handled by both Stripe and PayPal and orders are fulfilled by Pwinty's API.

We have plenty more features and themes in store, so keep in touch by following along on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
