|Drupal Landing Page||
A very simple landing page for my ALA Poster Drupal Infographic, no longer on a live site, but the poster and info lives here. The lower title linked off to the project when it was live.
|Ideal Portfolio Mockup||
As a project for a small portfolio class, we were instructed to section out, define, and present our work with an eye on developing a site to showcase our "brand." We researched current portfolio sites and used Cynthia Baron's Designing the Digital Portfolio as our text. The end result was a set of click-through wireframes that showed the different states and areas of the proposed site. While my current site does not resemble this mockup, it informed how I would eventually slice and dice my work for presentation and showed me that content organization is the foundation of any good site.

|Anatomy of Typography||
In my Interactive Information Design class, we had to design a tool for teaching someone about a topic. My partner and I chose typography since we are both very interested and knowledgable on the subject. Using Flash and xml we built a typography timeline along with 4 other sections meant to inform the user about all aspects of typography.

|Poster-American Library Association||
An infographic based on survey data from library respondents to a 2011 survey on staffing models for library Drupal installations. The information was also used in a report to advise Northeastern University Library on what would be needed in order to sustain an in-house Drupal environment.

|UI: iPhone Alarm Clock||
For a school assignment in a usability class, we were instructed to build a new alarm clock for the iPhone that needed very specific functionality. for instance we needed to add the ability for a user to choose to wake up to streaming radio. More details below.
|Web Redesign Project-NU Libraries||
In 2010 I was one of four people assigned to a task force implemented to start a complete redesign of Northeastern University Libraries website. We wrote and sent out an RFP, organized incoming bids, chose iFactory as our vendor, researched CMS options, and managed the entire process alongside the vendor for over a year. The new site went live in January of 2012. Our research into making a CMS recommendation of Drupal 7 (and my design of the research for an infographic) ended up being included in the ALA 2012 Annual Conference's Poster Session.
|Web Design||Photoshop, Drupal, HTML/CSS|
|Online Food Delivery Interface||
In a usability class, we were instructed to create an online food ordering and delivery system that had a few functional specifications. The end product was a series of wireframes representing each stage of the process. I combined a friendly aesthetic with an intuitive user workflow--keeping the displays simple, while incorporating all required functionality.

|Thesis Project: UI for slide selection, editing, and export||
My final project was to create an online environment for professors and researchers to search, select, edit, and export images for instructional purposes (with an eye to include other digital objects later). I conducted user surveys for the product currently in use, recorded a user interview as she stepped through her process. The end result was a design based on both user feedback and best UI practices.

The site for Anderson Comedy, a Boston-based comedy group run and produced by stand-up comedian Rob Crean, needed to be easy-to-use for the owner. He relies on his organization's Facebook page and Twitter to promote his events and needed a site that was just as intuitive to use. I used an out of the box theme, which I customized, and I created custom content types and views according to his needs.
