UX Case Studies

Workfront (formerly AtTask)


Managing projects within a team – including requests, assignments, time, availability, documents, and more.


Workfront is a SaaS work management tool that is used by companies like Cisco, Redbull, AMC, and ESPN. I worked as a UX designer, embedded into Agile teams, focused on various areas of the tool.

I designed an Android widget for logging time into the tool. I created mockups and user tested them, while working with the remote Android team in Armenia.

I worked with project managers to create requirements, wireframes, and protypes. We conducted user testing both remotely and in-person. We also travelled to interview our customers and understand the context in which our software was being used and uncover new problems we could solve.

I led design on two large projects: one to optimize report delivery and another to integrate an if-this-then-that workflow builder. These projects required communication with teams across the company and iterative protyping and user testing.

Chief Manufacturing


Helping professionals find and order tv & projector mounts for complex AV installations.


I’ve planned & designed multiple versions of Chief’s website as well as their parent company Milestone (which the site was eventually merged into).

As the lead designer at Chief, I worked with many departments including IT, sales, customer service, engineering, product and the executive team to plan changes to the website.

I also met with customers to do user-testing and worked with outside firms to conduct customer experience research & design thinking exercises.

Managing and reporting on workplace surveys to gain insights that can help improve corporate environments.


Our team at Emergent built a front-end survey and back-end tool for creating new surveys & analyzing the data.

I designed and tested form controls to ensure ease of use and speed for users taking time out of their workday to answer a survey.

Highcharts JS library was integrated and customized to help visualize data. Advanced filtering options were designed to take a deeper-dive.

My Dog’s Name


After adopting a new puppy I noticed the name sites weren’t helpful in finding a suitable name. Most were long, dull A-Z lists.


I designed & developed a tool to search for names by styles like elegant or tough & themes like sports or movies.

Clearly this was a common problem, as the site has reached up to 1 million views per month. The traffic has given me a chance to do some user testing & monetize the site.

As the site grew, I also designed a tool to compare dog breeds by selected traits.

Finding an easy way to track personal goals. Existing tools aren’t great for tracking goals & are often centered on projects or tasks.


I designed & developed GoalChamp to track goals on a timeline. Goals include the ability to set a primary task to encourage focusing on the next step. I also added tracking features such as a date countdown and a progress meter.

GoalChamp was something I wanted to build for a long time. To scratch that itch I taught myself how to develop a login system and run database queries.

Projecta Screen Selector


Determining the ideal projector screen for rooms with varying conditions.


The Projecta Screen Selector walks the user through a set of projector and room selections to determine the ideal projector screen based on room size & brightness, and projector distance and model.

There was an existing tool that was outdated and built in Flash. I worked with product experts to outline how the new tool should function and gathered the data requirements.

I created multiple iterations of wireframes before deciding on final functionality with the client. The final tool returns a list of suggested screens and allows filtering and comparing.

Burger Artist


Burger Artist is a fun side-project to create a recipe website focused on gourmet burgers.


I designed Burger Artist to be as helpful and mouthwatering as possible. The site focuses on teaching people how to make the best burgers possible & coming up with some creative recipes to share.

I did all the design, coding, writing, and photography for the site. Food photography was new to me, so it was a fun challenge to learn the techniques to taking photos that looked good enough to eat. I took all the photos with a simple Nikon pocket camera & tripod.

To promote the site, I created Pinterest & Instagram accounts and even designed a t-shirt. It’s been a fun hobby site and I’ve gotten some great feedback from users.
