Helios Interactive: A Freeman Company
Designer - Digital Graphics (December 2017 - Present)
Junior Interactive Designer (June 2017 - December 2017)
Two of my proudest achievements during my time at Helios thus far have been holding the role of Lead Designer for a large-scale mobile application for the Atlanta Hawks that was the first of its kind for our studio, and being Lead Designer on an internally-developed tool called Content Portal to deploy at conferences, trade shows, and other large-scale events. In my day to day, I desing interfaces for mobile products, large-scale touchscreens, and augmented reality experiences. For larger projects, I facilitate user testing sessions, beginning with paper prototypes and developing into high-fidelity prototypes. Throughout all of my projects, I collaborate closely with our development and QA teams to see projects through from start to finish.
Design Intern (May 2016 - May 2017)
My primary goal and accomplishment at BlackBox was designing and assisting developers in implementing the UX and UI of two mobile products that synced with one of our two wearable devices, which measured injuries sustained by the brain during impact. In addition, I revamped our brand guidelines to create large-scale trade show material, print-outs and pitch decks, and collaborated with the development team and industrial design team to establish a cohesive cross-platform experience.
Freelance Designer (August 2016 - December 2016)
At Explor-A-World, I assisted in assembling a curriculum workbook for Explor-A-World students learning a new language. This opportunity strengthened my print-based skills such as layout and icon design. This was also my first freelance experience, which allowed me to practice scoping work and establishing project deadlines.
Design Intern (June 2015 - August 2015)
My time at T-Mark was my first experience in a professional design setting and a great learning experience. I assisted senior designers in creating UI components for client projects, and took on marketing material tasks.My time at T-Mark was my first experience in a professional design setting and a great learning experience.
