RECENT PROJECTS

SHANGRI-LA

User Experience and Project Management Skills: Management, Motion Design, Video Production

RISE

Tools: Photoshop, Illustrator, After Ef fects, Axure

CONTEXT

Managed a 5 person team for 4 weeks, to prototype an experience design project for Shangri-La. Our analysis made evident that Shangri-La was lagging behind in the technology sector. Thus, we proposed an application that can enhance room customizations for their customers and increase the rate of return for the hotel.

RESULT

Developed a digital prototype with a heavy focus on UX/UI. E ectively communicated decisions made, through concept models, wireframes, and videos.

MEC FIT

User Experience and Project Management Skills: Interaction & Motion Design, Video Production

ASSISTANT

Tools: Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, Axure

CONTEXT

Managed a team of 6 members for 5 weeks to prototy- pe an experience design project for MEC. A sector wide problem exists for online shoppers, which was resulting in high profit loss for MEC. Thus, we develo- ped a FIT assistant; an application that records accurate measurements and recommends the perfect size.

RESULT

Since our service is an extension of the current MEC application, we made several improvements to the existing interface. Great details in the UX/UI are clearly communicated through our mockups, wirefra- mes, presentation and video.

SEATTLE

Spacial Design and Project Management Skills: Management, Graphic Design, Postproduction

SPACE

Tools used: Sketchup, llustrator, Photoshop, Blender

CONTEXT

Managed a team of 12 members for a 36 hour challen- ge to design a space near the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle. Our concept of stiching communities through the building and our consideration of urbanism, helped us place first in the challenge.

RESULT

After winning the challenge, the team was divided. I continued managing a team of 6 people for an additional three weeks. During which we refined our concept and iterated the form of the building.
