Mettacite

Mettacite was one of my first website redesigns. As a client whose product is focused on the future (i.e. data analysis) I felt their website should reflect their business with a sleek, modern color palette and features such as video landing page. A week after the launch of the new site, my client was contacted by AllState and IBM for contracts and has seen a 30% rise in business.

Sophisticated Movement

 I know what it means to give each project the personalized attention it deserves. I always strive to deliver state-of-the-art designs that bring my clients’ vision to life. This project is a great example of how I kept my clients’ interests in mind by creating unique visual elements and interactive features. Combined with SEO and the content library I integrated with the site, my client has seen a 24% increase in bookings of new clients and 76% rise in engagement.

Mozilla Foundation

One of the first things I did as part of the Mozilla Leadership Program was push for the creation of a website for our Fellows and Awards work. This involved creating a database on our leaders and working with a global UX and production team to develop test and launch these initiatives.

Netflix

Pitched social media and PSA campaigns for Netflix that were implemented by the company 10 days later and notably used for their annual April Fools Day joke.

What's Her Story

For SheHacksChi Hackathon, my team had 8 hours to develop a game/app/website that would encourage girls to learn STEM subjects. Basing our concept on a recent study that found girls our most interested in learning coding when it involves storytelling, my group created a madlibs style game that allows a user to create their own adventure while also translating a user's actions into pseudocode. Through the game, user's learn the fundamentals of programming and even can manipulate their story through the code.

HIVE CHICAGO BUZZ 2017

Inspired by the London event, Mozfest, Hive Chicago Buzz is a 3 day internet festival that celebrates connected learning. My responsibilities for this event included all digital communications (i.e. website, schedule app, social media marketing, and Eventbrite management), researching and working with the vendors, graphic design of signage Staged in the beautfiul Bridgeport Art Center, we had over 150 attendees and dozens of speakers, making it our most successful event in the 5 years since the event began.

 

MOZFEST

MozFest is a diverse, highly interactive event with something for everyone. The festival kicks off Friday evening with a science fair, where attendees can stroll around and check out presentations on inspiring ideas and projects, many of which were developed at previous MozFests. Saturday and Sunday are filled with participant-led sessions that generally run between 30 to 90 minutes. You’ll find interactive spaces where participants can learn something new or engage in some hands-on making or experimentation; small group breakout discussions where bright minds debate the most pressing issues facing the Internet today; and ongoing, informative displays where attendees can explore ideas at their own speed.
