Sureify was originally an educational tool that informs millennials on life insurance and how they should choose the best plan for them.
It has since rapidly transformed into an actual life insurance provider. It utilizes connected devices and health data, and provides a way for people to save on their insurance premiums through healthy living.
Currently, I am creating and designing all landing pages, marketing material, product design, and application design (mobile and web). You can view the Dribbble page here or go to Sureify.com
The application process for a life insurance policy is a lengthy process. We are working on fixing that, but in the meantime, we are concentrating on promoting the free devices the buyer gets once they do purchase their policy. Each policy comes with a free Fitbit wristband (dependent upon the policy chosen), and an Aria Scale.
Policy owners will be able to track their health through steps and weight (using Fitbit devices). If they achieve certain goals during each month, they will receive discounts on their initial premium rates.
This is just a modal displaying the steps tracker for the Fitbit wristband. It displays their history, current steps, and savings information.
The mobile app is a reflection of the web app, and allows the user to control their Fitbit devices. In terms of savings, policy information, and health tracking, it is the exact same on mobile and web.
After the MVP designs, I was able to gather some strong feedback from testing and interviews. This is a concept design for version 2.0, which will focus more strongly on savings and user activity.
I'm also creating a full visual branding scheme for Sureify. Above shows icons for what Sureify stands for: life/health, simplicity, saving money, and security.
With Sureify, you choose and purchase the life insurance plan that's right for you. After purchasing this plan, a package is sent to you containing everything you need to live a healthy life and save money. This includes a Fitbit wristband and Aria Scale, along with helpful instructions and tips.
This is just a prototype design, but I am working with the product manager and marketer to create a beautiful package that will promote life and savings. I am also working with Fitbit in regards to their own package designs.
Dwelo is a home automation system specifically designed for apartment and condo complexes. It is built for both the tenant and the property manager.
This product allows property managers to more effectively manage their buildings and gives the tenant a tool to control their home from anywhere.
I designed the mobile app that allows tenants to control and monitor their home.
Dwelo already had a conceptual dashboard designed for the property manager. I took their branding and the elements of this dashboard to create the mobile application. The mobile application is built specifically for the tenants to control and monitor their home.
This very low-fidelity wireframe and developed design was my initial approach - a single screen remote control for the apartment. The client and I decided against this approach, as they wanted a slightly more engaging experience for mobile. We both agreed the mobile app would be used far more than the dashboard.
With the second approach, I tried to vary the UI elements from the dashboard. I quickly realized this would not work, as each function is treated too equally and is hard to navigate the page.
During the conceptual phase, I took it upon myself to explore some interactions as well. This is a low-fidelity animation experiment for opening up one of the three primary controllers of the apartment.
Refined Animation Experiment
After applying the branding and styles to my wireframes, I applied them to my animation experiment. This animation is depicting what would happen if the user tapped on the Locks function -- pushing away all other elements and introducing each lock available to the home.
Finished Home Screen
After exploring a few more conceptual layouts, I landed upon this design. I broke up the information into 3 sections: the "hello" and system mode section, the controllers, and the settings.
The 2 most important functions of this app are the individual controls, and the system mode. Which is why I made the controllers to easy to access in the middle of the screen, and the system mode is a large toggle directly above these controls, which overrides anything done within the individual controllers.
These are three of the main screens in the app -- (rear) lights control screen, (middle) geofence settings, (front) home screen.
The home screen here is slightly different from the home screen of the previous design. The system mode section of this screen has been improved upon in the previous screen as we realized it was not apparent enough that it was not only a status indicator, but a toggle for user to choose a mode themselves.
Select WiFi Animation
During initial designing of the product, I was helping Dwelo decide on the best approach to connecting the app to the system itself (this was key, as changing the system's mode is dependent upon making this connection when the tenant leaves or arrives home).
We first decided to use WiFi (seen in this screen), but then learned you cannot scan for WiFi networks with iOS apps. We then changed to using Geofensing (seen in the next screen) as a substitute until this problem could be better resolved.
As an alternative to using WiFi networks, setting a geofence around the tenant's apartment was the next best solution. So I created a basic settings screen that would appear on initial login of the app, or could be updated via the Settings page.
Apple Watch Designs
In addition to the mobile app, I designed some basic screens for the Apple Watch. The tenant is able to quickly change the settings or simply view the status of their home. They can also receive updates about other people living in their home as they come and go, or change the system mode.
Monstercast is a combination of Twitch and Instagram. It provides a broadcasting and viewing platform for extreme sports enthusiasts with action cams. A broadcaster can connect their camera to their device and stream to their profile and followers. Viewers can actively search for streams, popular broadcasters, and follow their favorite athletes.
This is a side project that I am working on with my colleagues and a few others. SafeDeliver is a crowd-sourcing platform for package delivery and logistics. It enables homeowners who stay at home or work from home to accept and hold packages for their neighbors until they get home. It solves the problem or stolen packages, packages being damaged by weather, and gives people peace of mind knowing their package is in good hands until they receive it.
I am currently designing landing pages, marketing materials, and the entire web/mobile platform. Stay tuned for more!
This is the initial logo concept... I am still working on alternatives, but for now this is what we will be using to get things going.
Host Profile Module
A work-in-progress of a profile module displaying basic information about a potential Host.
The initial concept for the Host-facing dashboard. Users have access to their own stats, can manage their customers, and track the packages of their customers.
Mobile App - Login
The app will be an extension of the dashboard, mainly for notification and messaging purposes. Hosts can quickly let their neighbors know when they have received their package or they are bringing the package to their house.
Apple Watch Notification
The Apple Watch extension will allow users to be quickly notified of package deliveries and new messages from other users.
Mobile App Wireframes
A taste of my thought process for planning out the customer-facing mobile app.
I designed a platform for a medical research study at Stanford University. It gives administrators and participants the tools they need to communicate, monitor their progress, and follow the next steps of the study.
I built this platform with the idea that it will expand to numerous studies across Stanford's vast medical network. Currently, I am working with Stanford to create a modular approach so the dashboard will fit any of their research needs.
Pocketly is originally a successful local coupon finder that pulls user-posted coupon information from DealsPlus.
It has been redesigned to a much simpler version of that app, retaining the three core principles: coupons, based on your location, that you can save for later or use immediately. Each page and the overall app has been designed while following these three key components to keep the experience as easy and simple as possible. The main idea being a user wants to access coupons on the go, or quickly when they are about to purchase their items in store.
If you scroll down through the images, you can get an idea of my thought process for the UI design, along with a bit of the UX intermixed (something that I find to prove much more successful rather than keeping the UX and UI design processes separate).
With the recent shutdown of The PirateBay, I decided to do a simple redesign of their previous website. Their website was already fairly simple and straight-forward, but it could have used a beautiful skinning to enhance the user experience.
I also created a mini iPhone app to accompany the website.
I designed a series of web app dashboards that consolidate hundreds of Google spreadsheets and display the data in an organized manner. These were designed using Bootstrap and Sketch.
Vendus Product Labs
Vendus is a product design and development firm that I work for. We help non-technical companies grow their ideas into tangible products on the web and mobile.
This is the branding of our company. Jason Frits created the branding and style guides, and I implemented them into my web designs.
Abode is a home security system that is in early development stages. I am currently managing the design of their consumer-facing website, and assisting in the design of the customer web app and dashboard, and the native iOS app.
This is an on-going side project that I am creating with a developer friend of mine. It is a team management app specifically for the ice hockey leagues at the local ice hockey rinks (largest hockey rink facility west of the Mississippi). We are working alongside the original Hockeyvite website creator and Logitech Ice.
We are still in the early planning stages, but I will be updating this with mockups, wireframes and displaying my planning process.
I enjoy taking photos mainly when I'm on the go. I do have a DSLR that I use occasionally, but it's so bulky that I prefer to just use my iPhone or GoPro.
Most of my photography is posted to Instagram (and usually with poorly done filters), but I still like to think some of them are fairly good photos!
