I created a simple custom WordPress theme for my family’s Christmas tree farm.

Center for Mindfulness Meditation app

3 months – 2016

Background: The Center for Mindfulness (CFM) wanted to create a simple meditation app that users could use for short, “mindfulness”, meditation breaks. The ultimate goal was to track the user’s stress level before and after meditation, allowing CFM to gain insight into the effectiveness of short meditations on stress.

Role:  There were 4 people total on our team; 2 developers, 1 product, and myself, which served as the designer on the project.

Project:  There were several iterations of the design; I wanted to create a simple design that users could easily select the time they wanted to meditate, and allow them to meditate right away. Since we had specified time intervals for the meditation, a simple grid was used showing the :30 second, 1:00 minute, 2:00 minute and custom duration times. After selecting the time, a stress level dialog would appear, and after the user selects their stress level, the meditation time appears and starts automatically.

For the design of the timer itself, a simple mask on the background image was selected to keep a minimalist design. As time progresses, the mask moves across the screen.

Research was done for the app icon, and a lot of the images associated with meditation involve flowers, so I created an abstract flower icon to be used with the app.

Eating Well

6 months – 2016

Background:  The Center for Applied Nutrition wanted to develop a mobile app to be used in their department with obese patients. The idea was that each category had a specific threshold for recommended dose; for example, fruit might have a recommendation of 4 servings per day. As users updated their intake throughout the day, each category would change color (green, orange, red) to easily ascertain one’s progress.

Role:  There were 4 people total on our team; 2 developers, 1 product, and myself, which served as the designer on the project.

Project:  Up until now, a paper form is used to track dietary intake of patients, and the client wanted an easier way to track food intake, as well as allow their patients to be able to see their progress throughout the day, based on the thresholds set for each category.

The design I came up with allows users to see every food category that’s being tracked, and allows them to see their progress, as indicated by the progress bars below each category. Another important design consideration was being able to keep things simple and minimize the number of screens needed to view and update food intake. This was accomplished by being able to simply click on a category, increasing or decreasing a serving, and then saving. Some icons were used from Dribbble, and some were created from scratch to match the categories.
