I designed the user experience and user interface for a new website for the Safety Management Suite, a website consolidating and extending the company’s safety program and compliance tools. I helped to make complex data views and search tools easier to understand and use.
I designed the user experience and user interface for a new website for parents seeking resources for their birth through 5 children in the state of Utah. I also designed the provider portal in which service providers will maintain their listings and manage family referrals.
We began with a thorough research phase, conducting deliberative sessions with parents throughout the state, which gave us a high degree of confidence in our design. I delivered mockups demonstrating design solutions for every aspect of the applications—discovery, services, services sub-search, articles, and the Provider Portal with the best referral management system you'll find.
The goal of the project (which will proceed if a federal grant is awarded) is to bring Utah's system of early childhood services, which are currently siloed, into alignment to provide parents with greater knowledge and choice of state and community based services, and to help overcome the many obstacles they face in acquiring those services.
As part of this talented team of developers, I worked on several projects, performing above and beyond expectations. I helped found and lead a user group for all of STG’s designers to support and grow each others’ talent. Projects include:
Designed the user experience and user interface for a platform for internal web applications involving data entry, data analysis and processing, and data reporting. Created a living design style guide and pattern library to serve many developers in this ongoing endeavor.
I was in charge of redesign and new functionality for the drivers' toolbox mobile app; in charge of revamping the user experience and interface for hundreds of in-house web-based applications as part of a custom Java development team; as time allows, doing the same for the Drupal-based portals and public websites.
I ran the marketing art department in the world headquarters for the world's premier architecture, engineering, and construction management firm. With responsibility over the design of proposals, presentations, collateral materials, stationery, and web sites, I rolled out and managed brands, I put in place many standards, and I implemented automated systems for greatly-increased quality and cost control. I used HTML, CSS, JScript, and VBScript in various web site projects, intranet projects, and Outlook custom form applications.
Designed and built web sites and an array of print design materials for many in the film, music, and service industries.
Participated in a complete makeover of the corporate identities of Southern California's loved free ad paper in 8 editions, Recycler Classifieds and its sister publication PhotoBuys, a vehicle ad magazine. Responsible for a wide variety of graphic design tasks for both publications. Had an apprenticeship under Luis Quirarte, professor of typography and recognized expert in iconography.
