Samples of mockups created for O2 home, a version of the AT&T Digital Life home security & automation software branded for distribution and use in the United Kingdom by O2. In this particular project, I was given a stack of mockups used to create the original AT&T-branded iteration of the project, and was then responsible for designing a rebranded version of the software using O2's own internal style guide.
For employment consideration, I will be happy to showcase the complete stack of mockups, but due to the volume of images created I've chosen to only showcase a handful of them here.
Mobile Retail Infographic
DISCLAIMER: I do not own the data used to create this infographic.
For this project, I was tasked with visualizing the ways that web usage on handheld devices differs with the way it's used on desktop devices, and from there, tell a story about what that means for mobile retail. I created this infographic, which now serves as a visual reference for the client's in-house User Experience team to guide the future of their mobile development efforts.
The Home Depot UX Illustrations
Let me just start by saying how much of a blast I had working on this one.
User experience works best when you're putting faces to the statistics on which you're basing the future of your designs and experiences. The works presented here are all part of a storyboarding toolkit I developed for Home Depot's User Experience team. Each of the characters is a vector model that can be posed manually and outfitted with a variety of props and one of 8 facial expressions, which the team can use to visualize countless user experience scenarios and develop the best solution accordingly.
AT&T Camera Widget Proposal
While not a formal design document, this mockup is a proof of concept for an improvement to the design of AT&T Digital Life's camera widget. A discussion with some of the developers (in addition to a handful of actual Digital Life subscribers) led us to the conclusion that the existing camera widget had plenty of room for improvement.
Originally, the large view of the camera widget lacked the activity log that many of the other devices in the service have. Additionally, the border bars that house the camera name and the time of the last footage taken were transparent overlays on the camera view, making it difficult to see the whole area of camera coverage at a glance. In my redesigned prototype, I corrected both of these issues by adding an activity log to the bottom of the camera view, while pushing the border bars above and below the camera's field of view. Meanwhile, the size of the widget stays consistent with other widgets on the Digital Life home page, allowing for ease of development
Windyheit Festival Brochure
Milly Melodia exists because I like to tell stories and create characters, but I'm also perfectly comfortable with it being a breeding ground for experimenting with fields of design I don't get many opportunities to play with otherwise. In my ripe old age, I don't have as many firsthand experiences with big multi-day music festivals anymore, but they were a big part of my youth and collegiate years. It didn't matter how meticulously I planned my schedule beforehand, I would always be reaching in my pocket every 15 minutes to look at the festival program to make sure I was on track. Since Milly's story takes place at a music festival, I thought it would be fun to take a crack at making one of these for myself.

Nest Thermostat Widget Mockups
For this project, I was given limited reference to the Nest Thermostat and its list of features as incorporated into AT&T Digital Life. From there, it was my responsibility to create rebranded mockups for the Nest Thermostat widget for our UK-based client O2, as well as for an internal 'White Label' generic brand.
For ease of reference for the development team, any mockups passed on to them would have a color key, as well as interaction notes pulled from the original wireframe documents. This successfully made the mockups self-explanatory, allowing the developers to complete their branding & design work without disruption.

Wifi Mesh Use Case Illustrations
In July of 2016, I was asked to illustrate some use cases for a presentation proposing the introduction of a wifi mesh service into AT&T Digital Life, which would allow the wifi network of a home to tailor itself on the fly to the location of users within the network and which devices needed the most signal strength.
