About the Project Curated by local influencers, Discover My City pairs with the SOLID bicycle to guide you through 50 top places via haptic navigation. This allows the rider to keep their head up while cycling through the city.
My Role Implemented and refined the team’s visual design direction, while defining the app’s architecture, transitions and functionality. I also supported the app developer by coding all of the screen designs, transitions and button states in HTML and CSS.
About the Project Pulse is a smartphone that arrives personalized, and learns more about you over time to become even more helpful.
My Role I designed and animated a year in the life of the product, from first use through migration to a new device. Preceding the animation, I created storyboards and wireframes for the entire Out-of-Box Experience.
Compound Photonics 4K
About the Project Compound Photonics approached us for product and experience design around their 4K short-throw projection technology. This projector is meant for both entertainment and educational contexts. It has the functionality of a smart TV, along with a voice activated remote and pointer.
My Role After participating in early brainstorms, I returned to the project after the initial design process to create the digital interface and animated interaction flows.
Honeywell Flight Bag Pro
About the Project The previous flight planning app was suffering from what I would describe as, “bolt-on” syndrome. Features continued to be added without a clear navigational model or any sense of hierarchy. As a team, we quickly identified the key use cases, established a hierarchy of features and launched into an agile design and development cycle of two week sprints.
My Role As lead UI designer, I defined the navigation, site map and interaction model. This saved the design and development teams countless hours trying to communicate how each redesigned feature would look, act and function. I also created a UI components document and collection of key screen designs that became part of a larger style guide.
Key Challenges The nuances of flight planning are extremely complex. In order to understand what the essential features were, I had to rely on the input and expertise of pilots (who participated in numerous research sessions). This allowed us to keep the simple things simple and complex things possible.
About the Project This pod brewer lets you make your favorite coffee and espresso drinks at home with the convenience of single serve. The brewer is app amplified with features like remote brew, so your perfect cup will be waiting for you when you walk into the kitchen.
My Role I worked side-by-side with industrial designers to define the hardware UI for the brewer and frother. I also focused on the information architecture - what options would be on the machine vs. in the app (and their hierarchy). I also created wireframes and visual design directions for both the device and app UI.
