eHow Spark : : eHow DIY community

ART DIRECTON /  UX+UI DESIGN

The eHow Spark project had two main goals: (1) to get more traffic from social sources (expanding from just google referrals) (2) to build a community that would leverage the existing high volume of eHow traffic and give visitors a reason to stay and share—a platform to provide their own expertise /  inspirations / solutions with like-minded users.

I was the creative lead throughout the entire Spark lifecycle, working intimately with product, editorial and engineering leads. I was instrumental in strategizing competitive positioning (vs. similar services like Houzz, Snapguide, etc.), brand architecture, community incentives, and mobile strategy.  I played a key role in keeping the team aligned, motivated and productive.

One of the notable successes resulted in sustained 2-3x social referral traffic to the site.

GolfLink : : Game Tracker & GPS

ART DIRECTON  / UX+UI DESIGN

Designed, architected, and collaborated with product and engineering leads to build the first Golflink.com native iOS app.

Yardage maps was based on mapped gps locations and oriented the map so that the tee was always at the bottom of the screen while the pin was always at the top. Enabled players to plan and strategize their game before hitting the course.

Worked on prototype app which would track gps locations of where the ball landed so user’s could replay and strategize their game, get club recommendations, and improve.

I don’t even play golf, but it was a super fun project with a great team.

Karmapoints : : Volunteer your time. Get Karmapoints. Redeem for cool stuff.

ART DIRECTON  / UX+UI DESIGN

The challenge for non-profit organizations of finding volunteers (actual bodies) week after week, is incredibly difficult. Most volunteers would only remain active for 1 event, then disappear. The idea was to create a rewards program (like frequent flyer miles) for recruiting, retaining and motivating volunteers to help solve the problem of volunteer retention while also giving non-profits the opportunity to give back to the volunteers who give so much.

Worked with a passionate team of volunteers to create and launch the KarmaPoints.org platform.
