Design Sprint: GeoFix part 1
April 3, 2019
This is the first installment in the longer development of an app!
Design Sprint: App Icon
March 10, 2019
This weekend’s adventure was getting a Mac and learning to use Sketch! It was neat to find that my familiarity with GIMP and Moqups actually transfers pretty well to this new tool, although I will say that Sketch has an incredible user interface, with lots of accelerators that are easy to pick up as I go along.
Design Sprint: Stitch Tracker
January 5, 2019
Whenever I start a new knitting or crochet pattern, the first thing I do is print it out so that I can cross off rows as I complete them. I recently had the frustrating experience of deciding to make a second hat right after completing the first, only to realize that my pattern was all scratched out and difficult to read, let alone scratch out again for the second hat. Why not have an app for this?
Design Sprint: Skyway Guide
December 28, 2018
The Minneapolis skyway system boasts of being the longest continuous system in the world, at 11 miles of skyway spanning 80 city blocks (Thanks, MentalFloss.) Visitors always seem thrilled at the complexity of the system, but the regulars - downtown office workers and shoppers - can find not only an escape from the -3°F windchill but also shops, restaurants and coffee during the workday.
Design Sprint: Drone Flight Registry
March 23, 2017
In 2016 over 670,000 drones were registered with the federal government, and in early 2017 our household joined them. After paying a $5 registration fee and making three phone calls, our drone was ready for its maiden flight at a park.
Design Sprint: St. Paul Parking Permits
March 19, 2017
This exercise was a 1-hour sprint to practice the UI design process.
July 28, 2016
This is a suggested list of items to have available in case of emergency. This list was compiled from ready.gov, FEMA.gov, the NFPA, DHS and CDC sites and should serve as a starting point to customize for your needs.
Injury Documentation Protocol
April 13, 2016
The goal of this project was to create a visual guide for taking photographs of injuries. It was the case that there was little standardization of these images, which made it hard to determine severity, size and location. We set out to write a protocol instructing how to photograph injuries in context with size and color guides in order to create standard images that can be meaningfully used as reference of injuries.
Dakota Language App
December 16, 2015
DakotaVocab was an app developed to help students learning the Dakota language practice their vocabulary outside of class and build confidence reading and saying new words.
Improving Pedestrian Safety in Light Rail Transportation
May 30, 2015
In the summer of 2014 Metro Transit opened the Green Line, a light rail line that connects downtown St. Paul and downtown Minneapolis.
