A Mother’s Heart: Personal Re-Branding

Tiffanny Goodman is a playwright and author previously based in Saginaw, Michigan that relocated to Atlanta a few years ago. She wanted to restart her creative career and begin a platform for her public advocacy efforts to give a voice to parents who lost children to crime. She has an existing website but we needed to remove elements that she didn’t need, especially unnecessary widgets that watered down her branding - known as “feature creeps.” We began with low fidelity prototyping, and now the website is refocused on her writing and community service.


Women Who Code Hackathon 2017: BindexT UI Prototype Design

BindexT is a venture founded by entrepreneur Monica Hooks to develop a data analysis tool to discover social media influencers through the topics where they lead the conversation rather than who they are on the surface. The project was pitched to the Hackathon event to primarily find developers who would be interested in scraping data from Twitter API for sentiment analysis with designers to create a prototype of the physical product. My individual role was designing the UI with visual assets based on Monica’s vision of BindexT as an easy to use, non-corporate tool. After the weekend-long event (October 13-15, 2017), our team won 2nd place!
