Design & Teams

Digital collaboration is essential yet difficult. My thoughts on whats currently effective and what options design teams have.

Help Systems

Exploration of patterns for delivering help and user education.

Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is a quick way of bringing an idea into the physical world. I'll talk about my process of designing and cutting a simple iPhone stand.

Physical Computational Prototyping

This post covers my introduction to Arduino and physical computing. I did five simple builds to learn the basics of Arduino and where to find development resources.

Model Prototyping

I created three model prototypes for shower control systems. The goal was to create a control a physical and digital control system in the style of the OXO brand.

Behavioral Prototyping

A group project designed to prototype a in car gesture control system in a short period of time with limited resources. The following study and documentation was done in collaboration with Yitao Wang and Rickie Xie.

Video Prototyping

One Bus Away is a transportation app that provides up-to-date information about bus times. This post covers the process of making a short product video that demonstrates some of its functionality.

Paper Prototyping

My process creating a paper prototype for a haptic feedback based message service. The prototype pairs a wearable device (Apple watch) with a mobile application. This post includes notes about the design process as well as a short video demonstrating the prototype.
