Node is a concept for a participatory urban planning platform, giving local residents a voice in shaping the communities they live in. Node leverages AR to allow community residents to discover local urban planning projects and contribute their feedback in an engaging, time-efficient way. As a platform that supports flexible and user-friendly forms of giving feedback, Node closes the communication gap between urban planners and community members and makes the public engagement process more equitable.
Brightlove is a mobile game for Android devices that encourages players to be kind and to take action, rather than be mere bystanders. A refreshing contrast to the violence that often permeates mobile games, Brightlove encourages positive actions and rewards kindness.
Design / Creative Direction
My first project on the Code.gov team focused on refactoring the front-end of Code.gov to integrate the U.S. Web Design System 2.0, ultimately improving site usability and accessibility. My second project involved a week-long sprint designing a separate outreach site that would live on a subdomain of Code.gov. The site would serve as a hub for information about open source, from how to document open source projects to cultivating collaborative coding communities.
