Collateral Central Web App Demo
I was contracted by J.P Morgan to develop a PowerPoint-based web application demo presentation. The client wanted an interactive demo that would effectively simulate the user experience. The demo featured over 200 screens for which I needed to simulate various features - such as dropdown menus, hyperlinks, scrolling, etc., - when the user clicked on various elements and hot spots. This was achieved using advanced animation techniques such as non-linear navigation links, hyperlinks, triggers, etc., The project also required recreating most of the screenshots provided by the client in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign in order for the screens to display consistently at high resolution. This video is a brief sample of the very intricately detailed web application demo.

Valentine's Day Infographic Series
BUSINESS NEED: While working as a Senior Designer at ProPoint Graphics (now Modicum) in New York City, I was on a select team tasked with designing this series of infographics to showcase the firm’s capabilities.
CHALLENGE: The main challenge here was developing interesting content around the Valentine’s Day theme.
ACTIVITIES: Development of the infographics involved planning sessions to come up with interesting content ideas, internet research to support those content ideas, concepting sessions to strategize the layout and visualization of selected content, and collaborative design with a team of designers and a writer.
OUTCOME: The outcome was these two entertaining, informative, and very well received infographics that were used on the firm’s website for promotional purposes.
