A geospatial human mapping tool, specifically made for the U.S.A Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to keep track of current military personnels of their job titles, deployment schedules, known whereabouts, and other personal confidential information.
Every now and then we receive a project that is not only a challenge but also a rewarding experience. This is one of those projects. Revered for its simplicity, and used by Generals and High Ranking Officers of the military of the USA. This is projected provided a great experience in balancing form with function.
This project is created as a planning tool for the military. The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) needed a way to quickly browse for a deployed personnel to see where someone was currently deployed, how much time was left in their deployment, who their superiors were, where they were stationed next, and the individual who succeeded them. All while being displayed on a real time rendered map.
I wanted to provide the user with an experience of an everyday modern app, one you would see on the iPhone or iPad. I planned and designed the user interface to be as intuitive as possible, while giving them the detailed information needed for their jobs, by providing dashboards, quick looks, and side bars. I personified the user, the possible mistakes, I even took into account color blindness factors in the the colors of the application.
I had the honor of leading the product from concept, requirements, to wireframes, storyboards, mockups, prototypes, and finally assisting in the final production.
Designed for AT&T and Verizon used to offer mapping solutions for managing cell towers for preventative maintainence, cellular asset management, diaster recovery, and reporting.
With the partnership with Velotera and Open SGI, came a project to build a massive tool to offer these cellular moguls the ability to track their current cellular cell towers and the large amounts of data behind each tower points. I was tasked to come up with version 2.0 of this project. I came up with a lot of intricate mockups to demonstrate all the newly revamped work flow and newly added functions.
Unfortunately, this project never made it past wireframes. It was well received however business complications lead to the halt of this project.
Hunting for Online Coupon and Discount codes made easy. We work to provide our users with the latest and up to date code and offer them a great and easy way to browse for the exact coupons they need and share their findings with their families and friends.
CouponSite.com is inspired by my passion in finding great deals. I am the tech bargains kinda guy. It drove me mad having to pay full price or retail. In the quest for savings, it dawned on me that there really wasn't a good way to find those great coupon checkout codes online. I would hunt and scour Google only to end up with a 50/50 chance of finding something that worked. I was then determined to offer the public something better for those who are like me.
I wanted to offer people a way to really hunt for what they needed. Sorting by time the code was posted, displaying deals that were ending TODAY, sorting by specific percentages, and of course when you're scrapping the bottom of the coupon codes barrels just enough to get free shipping code. We developed that to provide the user as much control to find whatever it is they needed. Thus, my two business partners and I had set off to create something we would use ourselves.
Spend more time having fun when you're out at the bars and less time being ignored by the bartender in that crowded bar. Order and pay with your mobile device and receive alerts when your order is ready is picked up. Drink Up!
DrinkUp App is a projected that I thought would be vastly useful. It was always irritating to go out for a night of fun only to spend 75% of the time 'trying' to get a drink. While spending another 20% waiting for the bathroom line. That didn't leave very much for the 'fun' time I was suppose to have.
The application from a User Experience perspective had to be simplistic. Three steps to order exactly what you wanted the bartender to make. Alert message sent to your device as soon as it's ready. Interesting research to take into consideration the more intoxicated the person is, the more chances of them making a mistake. Also needed to consider large buttons and dark colors to not blind the user in a dark setting.
Overall, this is a new project in its infancy. More to come!
This is my old portfolio site. I would say my design aesthetics have matured a bit since the build of the last site.
I tried keeping it up to date for as long as possible. However, It really did not demonstrate my current aesthetics and coding abilities. That's when I finally pushed myself to create the version that you are looking at today. A cleaner, polished, well coded version of my site. Portfolio sites are always a drag. By the time you finished one site, your skills would have advanced a little futher and you're no longer happy with the one you're looking at.
