Learn about what I do

User Experience

Through research, user stories, 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

Yes, it is possible to hire someone that does UX and visual design. I'll turn your site or app wireframes into gleaming high fidelity designs that your developers (or mine) will be delighted to build.

Brand Identity

Your brand is the heart of your business or product. Whether it's a brand new company or it's just time for a shift, I'll help you develop an identity that will last well into the future.

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.

Website / Web Application / Mobile / E-commerce / UX

LAMOU sells tables which can be customized with any image you want. I created an e-commerce website that features a table builder app. Our focus on a streamlined user experience allows customers to easily create, purchase and share their designs.

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.

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.
