UI/UX Design in NYC
Focus: Web Design, Application Development
Bodega magazine is a new online literary journal. I was brought on board to design, develop, and maintain the entire website. Bodega started entirely from scratch. To begin, I compared different development platforms to find a solution that matched the type of content to be published, the required back end support, and the team's budget. I found that a custom content management system using Ruby on Rails was the best option.
To figure out the aesthetics of the front end design, I created a series of interactive wireframes to communicate the concept to the editors and test with users. Once the look and feel was confirmed, I developed and launched the official site. The first issue is scheduled to go live on September 4th.
Focus: Prototyping, Market Research, Product Design, Application Development
Bamboo is a flashcard study system for foreign language education. This product began by examining how instructors managed their classrooms. After finding significant need gaps in current solutions, I created a web app that allows teachers to analyze student performance data at both the classroom and individual levels.
I designed and implemented both the user interface and backend logic for the application, and worked with teachers both in the United States and abroad to test the application in their classrooms. The application is currently in private beta testing.
Focus: Information Architecture, UI Design
I was hired to help redesign the user interface and information architecture for one of Eventide's premium products. I worked closely with both the engineering and marketing teams to ensure that the designs were in line with both company and consumer needs.
To facilitate communication, I produced wireframes, mockups, diagrams, and product specification documents. The product is currently in production and has not yet been released.
