Entrepreneurial project: Food Roulette App
This is an entrepreneurial project for an app that presents a smartly tailored set of meal choices to help indecisive orderers. It makes these suggestions based on their pre-established food preferences and feedback aggregation from similar users. The app will present the meal, instead of the restaurant, as the primary information point. There is an entertainment- minded, novel meal suggestion interface that plays on gambling themes. This is an entrepreneurial project that spans from early concept through business strategy, UX Design, and early-stage user interface design.
Entepreneurial project: Athena Book Reader
Athena Book reader is a book reading device projecting for a future with updated color e–ink technology. Through needs identified through ethnographic–style research, the product concept morphed into a book reading app specializing in textbook reading and class note taking. The design explores optimal features for this specialized studying app and incorporates layouts for reading and annotating different types of reading materials, e.g. differences between comic book, math, and biology textbook formatting.
UX Research, UX Design, Brand Identity
Artwoof is a website that helps organize art shows in non-traditional venues. The UX Design explores, in much the way a dating site would, how to best match together artists, curators, and property managers to find the best fit. This enables them to more efficiently curate and have art shows. It is a primarily not for profit site with the aim of community-building. It's is a pet project of mine that I hope to be able to continue to develop.
UX Design, UI Design, Illustration
Prior to beginning my UX career, I have a long history of freelance. There was always a little extra time during the Summers when I was going to school and later, teaching, to take on these side jobs. Some of these include (more recently) UX Design, (previously) Web Design, Graphic Design, Illustration, Textile Design, Photoshop, Painting, and Patent Drawing. Although my primary focus is UX Design, this background gives me deeper insight into design and allows me to be able to lend a hand with production work when needed.
