Minnow is the next generation smart water meter, a simple kit that installs in your home and tells you how much water you're using, as you're using it.
Developed during the Business of Design course at CCA, my team and I wanted to fundamentally change people's relationship with water. Minnow's easy to install sensors and in-line meter provide exact water for your household. Not only does Minnow provide real-time water usage, it will also send leak alerts, monitor water quality, and allow you to compare your household water use with others in your region.

UrbanSitter is an online resource where parents go to find and book babysitters recommended by people they know.
As a UX / Visual Design contractor, I collaborated with the Director of User Experience and the Engineering team through several release cycles of the product focusing on the four of the most visible, user-intense portions of the site: new parent & sitter signup, the onboarding process (first-time sitter search and getting parents to book their first sitter), the parent & sitter dashboards, and the sitter payment process.
I also worked with the Marketing team on a custom design the UrbanFamily editorial site on the Squarespace platform, and designed and developed a series of responsive email templates for the Marketing team to use.

As a leader in the steaming entertainment business, Roku was looking for a dramatic visual update to their online presence. Working closely with Roku's internal marketing and development teams, I designed a fresh, airy layout to use as a template-style guideline for their website.
Roku wanted their email communications to visually match the new website, so I also designed and developed a modular-style, mobile-friendly email that could be used as a template for any future communication.

The Department of Medical Education at UCSF wanted a set of templates for their education portal that would satisfy the needs of each program within the department.
Requirements included 3 separate designs in which programs could select the template based on the type of content their homepage required (inspire visitors, educate visitors, or inform visitors) and select a color scheme (blue, green or gold). Each program was given the ability to incorporate an events calendar, blog, and two design options for a member / faculty directory.

Within the field of typography, letterforms typically embody either static or kinetic forms. However there is another category of typography that escapes the purely static or purely kinetic. This is temporal typography.
Unlike static typography, these forms are not bound by one iteration within a singular viewing experience. Similar to kinetic type, temporal typography carries the stamp of time but is not relegated movement or time-based media.
Temporal letterforms have the ability to manifest themselves in both static and kinetic ways, as well as physical and digital ways, and therefore cannot be evaluated by the same functional factors of traditional typography: legibility and readability. Viewership and perception are elevated, and formal and experiential conditions are re-prioritized as the forms transition from one state to the next.
As a means of mapping the territory of temporal typography and setting parameters for my explorations, I have identified and defined three independent qualities of temporal type: transitory, navigable, and medial. My studies examine these characteristics as distinct from one another allowing me to explore the boundaries and define intrinsic qualities of temporal typography.
