Brown Creative Mind Website Project Info/

Project Management, Information Architecture, Interface Design, Front end Development, Back end Development

Custom Wordpress, HTML5 + CSS3, Responsive Design, Tablet + Mobile

This website archives the ongoings of the Creative Mind, being a window in the classroom, the studio, and the laboratory at Brown University. The Information Architecture strategy for this project helped solve two problems: how do you keep clear, discrete categories while still allowing for an open ended, unstructured view of the content. The grid of content and it's accompanying algorithm allow this multi-valent view into the University. The persistent use of the grid on each page keeps the viewer circulating through the site, while still able to hunt for specific information.

Agile development using 'Scrum' framework

The aim of this project was to conceptually frame, design, develop, and deliver an iOS software product that is flexible, data driven, and able to be retrofit to a number of customers. Upon arriving on the project, there was no user-based specifications for the product. I set up user interviews, conducted the interviews and built user stories from the analysis. User stories were directly mapped to functional requirements and user experience/user interface design.

Modern Pictograms Website Project Info/

Interface Design, Interaction Design, Development

Collaboration with John Caserta

This website markets the newly released Pro version of an icon font, called Modern Pictograms. We employed the use of contemporary web techniques in HTML5 and CSS3, and emphasized the content of the icons as artwork, rather then a technology. The icon set is meant to do the talking, with the help of nuanced interactions.

Beyond RISD Website Project Info/

Project Management, Information Architecture, Interface Design, Front end Development, Back end Development, Social Media Strategy

Custom Wordpress, HTML5 + CSS3, Responsive Design, Tablet + Mobile

This newly initiated annual lecture series hosts RISD alumni who have built unique careers that work outside the realm of their specific major at RISD. The site runs on a thorough content management system, designed for administrators who have very little technical experience. Future expansion of the site is accounted for through simple, intuitive steps to convert the site from '2013' to '2014', including a color scheme per year design system. The site also includes a temporally changing information architecture - for pre event, during event, and post event states, all automatically controlled.

RISD Grad Book Project Info/

Project Management, Editorial, Content Strategy, Design Consultation, Sales

The RISD Grad Book (RGB) publishes the work of graduate thesis students from every department in a single, bound collection. In 2011, the first RGB was published, and took 13 months to design and produce, and only about 60% of the intended recipients got their books. In 2012, as the new editorial team, we trimmed the production cycle down to 5 months, were able to deliver the books to 100% of the students, and offered pre-ordering, and sale of the book at graduation. We created a net profit of $12,000, which was put into a granting system for future graduate students.

The Design Office Project Info/

Interior Design, Furniture Design, Furniture Fabrication, Interior Retrofitting

The Design Office, located in Providence Rhode Island, is a space for independent designers. The office recently expanded from 4 members to space for 12 full time members. I worked with the architect to collaboratively designed the space, and the furnishings. I designed and fabricated 12 desks, bookshelves, and large production tables. I am a member in the office, part of the terrific community of designers, and continually contribute to event planning, interior design of the space, and in-office collaborative projects.
