i make things
Exploring Screen Size
Prototyping Interactions with Hardware and Software
Exploring Kinect and openFrameworks
City of Big Data Visualizations
Secret Shelf Sensor Bananza
Ideation, Distillation, Execution
I prefer the deep end, flailing around in unfamiliar data and eventually surfacing with new ideas to MAKE and test.
My creations start with sketching, sketching, sketching...
And eventually a story unfolds
And then actual screens and interactions need to be distilled
Sometimes they're simple, sometimes complex
We validate our creations by understanding our users' motivations, sometimes it requires inventiveness...
GoPro for Ethnography
I designed a GoPro mount for us to wear during our field sessions. 3D printed goodness.
Distilling video and transcripts to insights takes time, but the pay-offs are great.
Pitching the Intel Tablet Wall
The final Intel Wall
Sketching and wiring a Taxi App
Executing on those sketches
Sketches for a secret Shelf
The Storyboards and final product
from excel to idea
and finally an app
did i mention i like data?
Prototyping In 3D
We needed to visualize data in 3D for the City of Big Data project, so I prototyped these in Cinema4D
Visualizing Tweets and the CTA
Prototyping for ContreJour
Prototyping with Box2D
Click it and check it
WebGL plus HTML layer
An ambitious hardware and software prototype
I wanted to build an HTML5 video game with a real-world controler, so I made a virtual thumbwrestling game.
Hulk Hands plus Arduino hardware and embedded sensors, all mapped to traditional thumb-moves
A friendly battle
OpenIdeo is a fantastic forum for designers to give back
Sketches for a couple winning concepts
Amnesty winning concept
Design House matches designers with local manufacturers that have latent production capabilities.
Hardware plus Software
Peoples Garment Company
I design and print vintage sports apparel
All I wanted was a skinny wallet
It blew up into a business
that needed a folding machine
