I had the opportunity to design one of the most popular features in the Limeade product: Team Challenges.
The team activity tracker is a practical application of gamification which drives engagement within the product. The enhanced tracker includes the ability to find and create teams, talk with other participants, and view team and global leaderboards – all in a mobile optimized form.
The native app project at Limeade aimed to simplify and optimize the user experience of the product on mobile devices. The web product complex and has a lot of functionality, but not all of that is useful for every day activity tracking.
We started by conducting interviews with users to learn the pain points of mobile web, as well as the most important daily actions for users. I built out designs, interactive prototypes, conducted more user testing, and worked with our awesome development team to ship the apps.
I was responsible for the art direction, design, asset creation, animation, style guide, and oversight of user testing.
Open Door was a part of the 2010 Microsoft Design Expo. The Topic was: Service Meets Social. The goal of OpenDoor was to create sustainable local communities through a borrowing and lending service. Our interdisciplinary team did research on existing services and relevant concepts to develop a well rounded service that appreciated the needs of the community, as well as individuals who would use the service. We went through an intense iterative process to insure the quality of the final product.
The Case of the Three Little Pigs is a project which explores the creation of a new gestural based language for the Xbox Kinect. Our team used the story of The Three Little Pigs to highlight interactions and phrases that were possible with the language we developed. We developed the classic story into a narrative detective game and produced a video prototype of how the interactions would work. You can view some of our process here.
Hidden Secrets was part of an information design exchange on the topic of water. The program was between the University of Washington and South East University in Nanjing, China. Exhibitions were held in China and the US to display posters made by students.
