MATERIALS & PROCESSES
This body of work represents three years of industrial design development. I believe in crafting products and experiences that have a particular presence which
affects their users in a positive manner, ultimately leading to a meaningful and coveted solution.
this iPhone case acts as an exosuit that allows the user to expand their devices capabilities and extending the iPhones useful life and purpose.

the average life of a us cell phone is with only 11% of which are recycled.
By adding functionality and improving capability, through customization life can be increased.

fIndIng CHaraCter Ideation & detailing focused on creating a form that confirmed the inspiration and functionality of a protective case that allows external attachments.
Its aBOut tHe jOurneyA series of mockups explored ergonomics and form, besides scale. Mockups validated sketch concepts and made them physical.
INITIAL CONCEPT MEChANISM ExPLORATION
+ Modular sliding rail mechanism
DEvIATION REFINEMENT FINAL CONCEPT
+ Rigid, ergonomic, visually engaging and functional
Modules receive power and data through a central rail and are interchangeable in any combination for a maximum of 3 at a time, whatever the purpose. The case taps into the Apple Lightning bus system to interact and provide power to modules.

Ideas ranged from mild to wild, exploring form and interaction. promising concepts are then developed into foam mockups to visualize volume and detail. Once the final candidate is chosen, it is detailed to the Nth degree.
desirable formergo (handle)-
To provide drive to a jar with the motor in-line, requires a belt to drive a radical electromagnetic coupling to allow for a jar that slides into the base rather than sit on.
A (electro)magnetic coupling or clutch is employed to eradicate a physical link between jar and base, allowing for a flat jar bottom and flat base surface for easy sliding action with no rocking or clicking. This innovative linkage defines the interaction.

human interaction occurs on a horizontal plane. A Sliding jar eliminates the stress of lifting, reduces physical height for versatile placement and simplifies operation. Touch based controls emphasize this interaction. The jar is magnetically engaged and stabilized to the base and covered by the overhang, not requiring a hand to steady.

The red curvaceous surface is textured in order to offer a pleasant tactile feedback. This is in contrast to the gloss white surfaces, with sharp edge detail. This contrast is
unified by the form language. This theme of two objects connecting is an analogue for human interaction.

this digital uI/ux project involves creating an online training module for a seattle based caregiver volunteer service to improve their new recruits
knowledge of what volunteering entails in a more efficient and fun manner.

Island volunteer Caregivers (IvC) serves as a link between the people in the community who need help and those who are able to help. their volunteers provide transportation, caregiver support and assistance to seniors and others. essentially, they help fill in the gaps so that people can live as independently as possible.
this online training module will guide them in what they can do as a volunteer.

The concept model visually represented all the possible pathways users could use in the system. From initial contact to e-mail confirmations, the detail offered by the model provided a strategy as to how to organize and develop the content.
wireframes are created to work out the logic and structure of interaction and navigation. furthermore, any repetitive or unintuitive interacts are observed and sorted. wireframes are created in axure to view interactions in real-time.
A majority of content is in animated video form. As a result, consistent iconography is developed to convey information along with a narrated track, kindly recorded by a former MSNBC radio host. This engages the user and facilitates active learning and maintains enthusiasm.
Content is finalized in narrated video form for complex content and interactive icon matching for simple content. the content consists of the key points taken from the organizations handbook on procedures and discussion with the clients.
delIveryThis sequence flow shows various elements of the training module. Visibility and Usability are the key driving forces in the visual design. Rollover states and hierarchy maintain a users location awareness.
