PROJECTS

Stage AR

S

When presenting ideas or telling stories, applications like Google Slides or Powerpoint have become essential. However, with these platforms comes a level of abstraction in communication. With mixed reality, we now have the power to close the abstraction gap. Using the ease of slide deck platforms as a guide and utilizing the voice command of the Hololens, we designed StageAR to enable others to create empathy easily.

Aquaforum

.

In the future, water access could become more restricted in order to avoid a water crisis. For this project I imagined a world 10-15 years in the future that would have to grapple with these restrictions. This speculative design project involves a platform that utilizes the AI system that restricts water in order to allow transactions to happen without physically moving the water.

mira

Sometimes, we don't even know how we feel. mira is something that might help people become more aware of the patterns in their actions and emotions. Using AI technology, mira tracks your emotions and pieces together patterns based on your digital footprint and the location tracking on your phone.

SPC Re-Design

My previous company needed a website face-lift. The marketing team realized that there were two kinds of clients coming to the site: those that already had affiliate programs and those that didn't. It was up to us to present SPC as the go-to place for affiliate knowledge no matter the potential client's level of experience.
