  • Bob the Psychiatrist
    Interactive Installation
  • Goal
    Help destigmatize mental health by providing a conversational opportunity in a casual setting.
  • About
    Participants enter the installation as a new doctor. Tasked with checking on each patient, ‘the doctor’ must navigate the patients’ mixed signals and his/her own confusion to complete the assignment.
  • Design
    Digital patients react statically to the participant’s actions within the installation. However, unseen online users alter the patients randomly to further confuse and frustrate the participant.
  • Simply Beautiful
    Interior Designs
    Website Redesign Concept
  • Goal
    Produce a simple, yet interesting, design concept.
  • Design
    The light color palette and infinite scrolling simplify the design. Textures and large images add visual interest. Image sliders break cumbersome sections into manageable amounts of information.
