Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Design an Educational App

If you have an idea for an educational app I can guide you on the design process from discovering user needs through research, generating design requirements, creating low-fidelity mockups, usability testing with users, and creating high-fidelity mockups that can be handed off to engineers for development.

Develop your Portfolio

For most art / design schools, admissions are competitive and a strong portfolio can be a key requirement. I have maintained a design portfolio for more than 10 years, and have gone through many iterations and discovered the key components they need to have to be: 1. Relevant and specific to your career objectives 2. Simple and easy to navigate through 3. Thorough, showing your entire design / thought process I can help you not only design and curate your portfolio but suggest the kinds of personal projects that will round it out and give you a competitive edge.
