Pocket Assist

It’s no secret that for most people, convenience is everything. We want the ability to get any product, from anywhere in the world, as quickly and conveniently as possible. Thanks to the rise of online retailers this luxury is our reality, most of the time. Every once in awhile, as much as we try to plan around it, we have to venture to a traditional retail store to purchase an item. 

Pocket Assist is a SASS platform that transforms the shopping experience for both the retailer and the consumer. As a consumer, simply download the app, select from one of our partner stores, search for the product you need and the app will direct you via a map-based navigation system to the exact shelf your product is on.

Department of the Interior

Over the course of two weeks I was challenged to review the current website and branding of the US Department of the Interior, analyze the user experience and the UI elements, address their strengths and weaknesses and develop a solution that makes the site more modern and efficient by updating their Style Guide. The Department of the Interior manages and conserves our nation's natural resources and cultural heritage and serves as a major gateway of information for millions of visitors each year. It is vital that the user experience efficiently serves everyone from visitors planning to visit one of our national parks to employees signing in to manage work accounts.

Austin Pets Alive

Austin Pets Alive, APA, is a nonprofit animal shelter based in Austin, TX that runs solely on monetary donations and volunteer hours. The mission of APA is to promote and provide the resources, education and programs to eliminate the killing of companion animals. The heart of this organization is, by and large, the volunteers. From administrative support to foster the animals, volunteers are what keep the APA running. Due to the critical nature of APA volunteers, it is vital that the on-boarding process be as seamless and easy to understand as possible. Retention of volunteers starts with an efficient orientation process. Over the course of two weeks, myself and a team of designers reviewed the current volunteer registration and on-boarding to find ways to streamline the process, minimize user frustrations, and increase volunteer retention resulting in a newly redesigned volunteer registration process.
