The Dispatch App is an internal tool developed in order to improve operational efficiency at Zipjet’s hubs, where customers’ laundry is sorted before being transported to a cleaning facility or delivered back to the customer by a driver. The goal is to save time and reduce manual errors during the dispatching process.
Laundry and dry cleaning is a necessary, mundane chore. With Zipjet’s service, however, users can regain invaluable free time by outsourcing their laundry chores to the experts- all through their mobile devices. One of my key roles at Zipjet is to bring energy and excitement to the laundry world in a way that sets Zipjet apart from other laundry and dry cleaning services and encourages people to use the service.
Here is a sample of different illustrations and graphics developed for various online and print media, which serve this purpose.
Zipjet users can access the service through both web and mobile applications. My focus has been primarily on improving the usability of the web app in order to increase conversions and improve customer satisfaction, by better illustrating the finer points of the service.
As a devoted Strava user, I'm a big fan of the way that the Strava app visualizes workout data for athletes. One key feature that I feel might be valuable is a music integration with an app such as Spotfiy- many athletes rely on music to power through their workouts, and as a social platform for athletes, Strava could offer an even richer experience for users if they could share their music info with friends.
Many pet adoption websites are disorganized and hide the most important content - information about pets that are up for adoption! Paws is a take on an online database that would pull from all of these website separately and allow visitors to connect with shelters directly via an easy to navigate system where they can quickly filter through key information about dogs that are available to adopt.

Really focusing on spacing text properly in my designs so that it's more readable. This social share screen is part of a larger project I'm working on, presented as part of a Daily UI challenge.
I‘ve been working through Daily UI challenges recently in order to improve my visual design skills as well as introduce some variety into my work.
The Accu-Pal is an effort to streamline diabetes and eliminate the bulk many diabetics have to carry when they go out. It was user tested with the help of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and received a positive evaluation from the Roche Diagnostics Diabetes Care division of North America.
MOD is an endeavor to create a truly modular prosthesis that provides a high quality socket fit and allows the limb to "grow" with the wearer. MOD also explores a way to marry the quality of traditionally designed prostheses with rapid prototyping technology to create expressive, customizable frames that highlight the beauty of connection.
MOD was awarded DAAPcare's Director's Choice Award at the University of Cincinnati for having a meaningful impact on the lives of others. It was later showcased at multiple events, including Chicagoans for Cincy's Bearcats Exposition.
This ongoing project was developed for a cellist who plays with her feet, who needed a custom stand for her instrument which allows her to transport it independently and set the instrument up to play herself. The project was completed through the nonprofit organization May We Help in Cincinnati, Ohio. The stand is still used regularly and a duplicate has made for another cellist with a similar physical limitation.
The Medical Design Trend Review 2016 was a project completed during my internship at the multinational consultancy WILDDESIGN in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. I was responsible for arranging interviews with professionals in different sectors of the medical industry and conducting background research on popular trends in medical device design and aesthetics, as well as co-writing the report.
The report has been featured in the January 2016 edition of German magazine Medizin und Technik.
OMM is a biomimicry exercise inspired by the optical abilities of the scarab beetle. In this design I explore the way these features can be applied to a flashilight, which also "sees" in the dark. One of my primary goals for the project was to not only imitate nature through biomimicry, but also create a design that could realistically hold all standard flashlight components.
Selene is an exploration of form and an exercise in organic surface modeling, inspired by the work of jeweller Third Eye Assembly.
Checkbox is a medication reminder system that helps patients to adhere to their prescriptions and take their medicine on time. I was responsible for the initial app layout/navigation and developing a straightforward method for users to navigate through the app.
Boomerang is a budget app concept for the adventurous traveler. The app offers the ability to search for a randomized itinerary for a set number of days, selecting the cheapest destinations for the user to fly to (in the future, the concept will be expanded to include other forms of transportation and possibly accomodation). The result is a "surprise" itinerary to a variety of different cities the user may have not considered visiting.
