user experience & visual design
Digital Democracy has been one of the coolest projects I've ever worked on. This robust tool, created by the Institute for Advanced Technology and Public Policy at Cal Poly, is making the democratic process more available and transparent to citizens. The backend of this software is powerful and the capabilities are unlike anything else out there. Their UI design, however, fell flat, so much so that it hindered the user's experience and appeared to lack credibility. I worked with this client to help solve some major UX problems facing the site and providing web brand guidelines for their developers. I worked on various, complex projects using creative problem solving under tight deadlines. The results of these efforts have provided a perfect example of the impact that technology can have when paired with clean visual design and an intuitive user experience.
