I Need You - Antionique
Role: Lead Designer
Situation:I was approached by the Management Team for Recording Artist Antoinique to assist with the release of her new single "I Need You" from her latest album "Church In The Park". They needed something fast because the single was due for release within two days of the ask
Task: To quickly create a single cover that would appeal to Antoinique’s Christian music fans. Antoinique is a former Neo-Soul artist and is rebranding as a Christian Gospel Singer
Action: my role as Lead Designer on this project, I was trusted with choosing between three images, given by the Management Team, to use for this cover. One was of the artist sitting outdoors on concrete stairs, in a park, looking away from the camera and not smiling. Another image was of the artist squatting, smiling and looking directly into the camera. I chose the image of the artist standing, appearing joyful, smiling, and looking down humbly. The reason I chose this image was because I felt that the artist appearing shy, yet joyful, would resonate with Gospel Music listeners. I added more light to her face and body to give her a clean glowing appearance. I kept the font and placement of the titling simple. Nothing to flashy or over indulgent.
Result: The Artist Management Team and the artist, herself, loved it and has contacted me to change the titling, on this image, each time a new single is set for release from this album.
Role: UX Designer
Situation: I was given a requirement that asked me to create, without research nor user data, a basic, first impression, Lo-Fi wireframe of a Patient Tracker for Tablet and Desktop only. This application would be used by medical staff to track steps, calories burned, and hours of sleep for multiple patients.
Task: With 2 days to complete, I drew upon my past experience in the medical field and had a discussion with a RN friend who is currently working in the field, to bounce my ideas off of.
Action: I sketched out an initial design with pencil and paper. Without knowing age or computer literacy, I wanted to keep the interface simple and easy to use. Once I felt good about the direction of the sketch, I moved the design to Balsamiq.cloud, a web-based user interface design tool. This would be the best way to share my ideas and thoughts with this particular client.
Result: The result was a user interface that not only addressed all aspects of the initial ask, but went a couple of steps beyond.
I created a dashboard that presented a sortable list all of the patients being tracked by the user, their name, stats, and at a glance visual confirmation of whether or not they were close to completing or had completed their daily goals.
Tablet UI Walkthrough
- The Header - Located at the very top of the screen, consists of a fictional logo, company name and symbol, notifications indicator, and hamburger menu.
- The notification could be self-set user reminders and/or notification of stat information, sent from patients.
- Welcome Message - Located at the top of the page, welcomes the user by name and doubles as confirmation as to which user is currently logged in.
- Current Date - with left arrow navigation to view previous dates. Using the left arrow to scroll back to a past data, will give, at a glance, stats for all patients, in the manner sorted.
- Informational/Notification - Located on the right side of the page, this text area can be used for, up-to-bat user reminders or user notes.
- Sort Feature - This feature allows the user to sort patients by first or last name, highest or lowest amount of steps, most or least calories Burned, or most or least hours slept.
- Search Feature - This feature allows the user to search for a patient via any searchable profile data. Last name, First name, address, date of birth, SSN, phone number, patient ID if applicable
- Patient Cards - These cards not only give an at a glance breakdown of all the patient stats for the day, but also links the user to a drill down of more in-depth individual patient information.
- Each card shows a patient photo, first and last name, category icons and progress area with star rating system.
- Clicking the photo, patient name or progress indicators, drills further down into the patients individual file. The option to view by day, week, month, or year can be accessed here.
- Card data can be edited by clicking the patient photo. In edit mode the user can edit any patient information as well as edit the patient photo itself. The stat information can be edited by clicking on any of the stat categories. The option to delete the patient file would be found here as well.
Persistant Bottom Navigation
- Home Button - Grayed out and inactive when on the home screen to avoid clicking and unintentionally reseting sorted data. otherwise it would navigate back to the home page.
- Add New Patient - Allowing user to add new patient via modal a modal form, from anywhere in the application.
- Log Out Button - Although there is a Log Out link available in the dropdown menu, I felt it was very important to add a "Quick Exit" Log Out button in the persistent menu, located at the bottom of the tablet view. This will give the user a quick way to exit the application should the risk of exposing sensitive patient data become present. The user can exit the application with one click from anywhere in the application.
