UW Funding

Given a type of data (crime, education, nutrition, etc.) we were asked to explore a specific set of this data that told a clear story. I chose to represent the recent changes made in funding at our school — specifically the removal of state funding and the significant increase in tuition resulting from that change. Functional prototypes were encouraged.

Student Spotlight

The goal of this project was to explore new types of interactions as well as develop along traditional standards regarding hierarchy and information architecture. The web site was to be a resource for students at a university. Things like class registration, account and tuition information, and schedules were required in the form of individual widgets, but we were encouraged to invent a few of our own.

Common Ground

This project explores the issue of personal connection to local community. Our team set out to create an application that would provide opportunities for individuals to get involved with their personally-defined “ground.” In addition, we wanted to encourage individuals to continually engage and build relationships with others in their “common ground.”

Smart Table

This experimental smart table records and displays how much beer everyone is drinking, as well as deciding who has to spring for the next pitcher.
