mPower Me — The Full UX Process

ELEVATOR PITCH: Ever wonder why Prius drivers are the most annoying drivers on the road? It’s because once there’s a live feed of the miles per gallon, the game of getting the best MPG outweighs speedy driving. I can confirm this because I own one. Now imagine a live feed of energy use at home? […]

The Prius Effect

This week I spent some time emailing back and forth with Andrew Milmoe at GE Digital. He gave me options of things to use for my UX project. The project I found that might be most useful was a system that turns data streams from all over the world into a singular measurement system to […]

E Commerce: Adventures in Toyland

This project was as much an adventure in information architecture as it was in learning Axure! Fortunately both proved to be worth while endeavors.   After reading the brief for Little Einstein Toy store, the first order of business was figuring out how to categorize and search the inventory.

Design Verses Usability

A few quick thoughts on UX design mid our eCommerce project. I realized that designing from the perspective of the user experience was great until suddenly we needed one more button than I found visually pleasing.
