User Research

Your users are the heart of your product. Through user stories and validation, let's make sure they're getting the necessary value that will build a lasting relationship.

User Experience

Through flows, wireframes, and prototypes (and of course testing all ideas and iterating accordingly); I'll help you develop an experience your customers will love.

Visual Design Systems

Yes, it's possible to hire someone that does both UX and visual design (we're called unicorns). I focus on designing comprehensive and versatile systems using atomic design principles.

What is a modern day Smithsonian?

Brand Positioning / Print Design

The Asian Pacific American Center is the newest addition to the Smithsonian Institution. I was asked to create a promotional booklet that established the branding for the museum and functioned as a tool for their funding phase. APAC is looking to establish themselves as a modern and tech-forward museum, and wanted the branding to reflect that position.

How can parents get involved with literacy?

Website / Web Application / Mobile / Ecommerce / UX

POP Reading is a science-based approach to fostering children’s literacy for parents to use alongside teachers. I developed a clean and eye-catching brand that would clearly communicate their message and appeal to young parents. The website I created features an interactive quiz that helps parents assess their child’s reading level.

When does mobile-first make sense?

Website / Mobile / UX

Roambi is at the forefront of mobile data visualization, providing business intelligence to users on the go. The problem was that their actual product provided a much better mobile experience than their marketing site. I designed a mobile MVP that demonstrates Roambi’s dedication to user experience, and in turn, generates greater leads for mobile users.

Logo Design / Brand Identity / Style Guide

Titan Medical is a thought leader in the robotics assisted surgery field with a revolutionary new product. They were looking for branding that emphasized their powerful and cutting-edge technology. I created a multi-tiered logo system that can be used across a variety of iterations and products.
