Recent Projects

I've limited what I've included here to recent larger scale projects where I was integrally involved in the planning, design and development processes. In addition to these projects are a huge number other projects - customer research, usability testing, competitive analysis, corporate style guides, intranet and extranet development - which are not included here.

I'm currently in the process of updating my site and adding these project descriptions. In the meantime please visit my Archived Portfolio to view additional projects.

iPhone & Android Apps

Role: Wireframes, Task Flow, User Testing
Company: Mercatus Technologies
Client: Price Chopper

Project Description: Designed iPhone and Android native apps to enable shoppers to browse flyers for their preferred store location, save flyer items to a shopping list, manage and create multiple shopping list, browse and save recipes, add recipe ingredient to shopping lists.

Apps integrated new functionality as it became available – including online ordering and Zavers coupons.

iPad App

Role: Wireframes, Task Flow, User Testing
Company: Mercatus Technologies
Client: Price Chopper

Description: Phase 1 functionality was based on the functionality available in the iPhone app, but with iPad specific interaction for browsing products, coupons and recipes.

Phase 2 functionality (designed but not yet implemented) contains Meal Planning functionality, which is a tool for grouping and saving recipes as meals, which can then be scheduled.

Access To Care

Role: Information Architecture, Wireframes, Task Flow,
Company: Bensimon Byrne
Client: Ontario Ministry of Health
Website: Health Care Options Directory

Description: Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s Access to Care, part of the Health Care Options portal. The campaign was part of a larger effort to help reduce Emergency Room wait times across the province. The goal of the campaign was to raise awareness of alternative health care options, and to help Ontarians find those services in their area.

Access to Care included a public website (and responsive mobile site) as well as an integrated CMS. Doctors or clinic admins could ‘claim’ their clinic – if it existed in the portal – or add it. The CMS enabled call center employees to manage doctor and clinic data, including a process for verifying clinic claims, newly added clinics and reported data issues.

The campaign – which included extensive print, radio and television components – won a CASSIE Award in 2010.

Rethink Breast Cancer

Role: Information Architecture, Wireframes
Company: Project
Website: Rethink Breast Cancer

Description: Typical of a lot of projects at the agency – asked to revive and revise a website to meet changing needs. In this case with Rethink to act as a promotional tool for their events, a repository for those events, and as a fund raising tool.

Attune

Role: Information Architecture, Wireframes, Task Flow
Company: Frogware Inc

Description: Attune was a social directory that allowed users to contribute businesses, stories, events – anything that exist within a physical area. Users also could rate and discuss anything that’s been contributed. In addition users could associate business, events and stories to each other, creating relationships based on their intimate knowledge of their area.

The idea behind Attune was to collect as much data as possible about an area (neighbourhood), from as many sources as were available, and to aggregate the data into complex community profiles. Users could indicate preferences over time – either through their actions or via a control panel. The user’s preferences would then be used to determine what things Attune “suggest” – be that areas, or things within those areas. Eventually the idea evolved to where the core data within Attune was exclusively user contributed.

Attune was later rebranded as Neighbour Knowledge.
