K1000 Go Mobile App

The Dell K1000 Management Appliance is a workhorse IT server which allows admins to manage their entire fleet of devices from a web UI. K1000 Go is the pocket interface to this powerful appliance.

 

K3000 Mobile Device Management

The Dell K3000 Mobile Device Management Appliance was a clean-sheet design for a server-appliance to manage mobile devices. I was the lead designer for this project.

 

Superdisk

Superdisk was software for using excess storage capacity from many devices on a network, combining them to form decentralized, cloud-like storage.

 

Photo Kiosk

Kodak needed a new experience for their out-dated Picture Maker Kiosk to maintain the perception of quality.

 

Walk-up Email

Before touch-screens were prevalent, email was typically a keyboard and mouse activity. I lead the cross-functional team that recreated email for Xerox touch-screen multifunction machines.

 

Extending Design Strategy

The same design had to be scaled to fit anything from the largest full-screen displays to the smallest quarter-panel devices. This had to be done while maintaining the a usable touch-target size and readable font size across all devices.

 

Greeting Card Kiosk

Kodak wanted to test-market a kiosk that would do one thing only – make greeting cards.

 

Supplies Monitor

I went beyond the original scope of the project and proposed an end-to-end system that not only notifies the user when supplies are low, but also directs the purchase to the original vendor.

Strategy

I understand the business and users and develop designs to support them

Collaboration

I work closely with stakeholders to find solutions that not only work but can be implemented

Design Thinking

The design process allows me to creatively solve problems and create innovation

Visual Design

I use design principles to communicate, motivate and manage complexity

Research

I gather insight from benchmarking, experimentation and iterative user testing

Technical

html, css, javascript & php, photoshop, illustrator, invision, balsamiq, axure, etc.
