thm1050_web_mca

My Cambrian Aquarium is an educational website about the Cambrian period of Earth’s history. It is my master’s thesis project. The project includes an interactive timeline and virtual aquarium game. I designed the entire user experience, from conducting research to diagramming use case scenarios and information architecture, to user testing and analysis. Read more about my thesis project.

UX Design: Diverse Design

Diverse Design was a group project. It fulfilled a class assignment to design an online learning tool focused on usability. I designed the site wire frames and information architecture, as well as the layout of the second-level pages and account interface. I programmed site prototype using HTML, CSS and PHP (it is not a fully-functioning web site, but a high-fidelity prototype).
