Monster Character Design

Characters in digital media can be used as guides throughout the learning process, while facilitating a feeling of friendship and fun - critical in keeping children engaged. I designed these monsters to be part of an educational game application that helps improve literacy in young learners. 

EGRA Mobile Application

EGRA Mobile Application

The Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) is a toolkit designed to measure literacy levels of primary school children in developing countries. EGRA helps educators identify areas within reading instruction that need to be improved. Improving literacy in early grade students is important because students need to first learn to read so that they can read to learn.  Existing applications that facilitate EGRA are out-dated and not easy to use. In fact, it takes quite a long time to plan an EGRA study, configure the application, collect data, and disseminate meaningful results. My goal of the project was to design an easier and more intuitive mobile application that would allow teachers to conduct EGRA with less effort, in a shorter amount of time.

ITU 150 Mobile Application

ITU 150 Mobile Application

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies. May 17, 2015 marked ITU's 150th anniversary since the signing of the first International Telegraph Convention and the creation of the International Telegraph Union.  As part of their communications strategy, they ran an anniversary campaign to commemorate and celebrate 150 years of innovation. My job was to design an engaging mobile application that showed anniversary-related events and its details, while keeping users informed of the history and work of ITU.
