Equal parts design researcher and interaction designer. In addition to designing visually-driven interfaces across multiple device types and contexts I’ve been fortunate to work on audio-based interfaces. The best part? Working with a wide variety of communities, from blind people to musicians to cardiac surgeons.
100 Years of the Canadiens
The purpose of this website was to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Canadiens hockey team. The site provides hundreds of player profiles, greatest moments, and in depth looks into seasons, arenas and even the evolution of the team's jersey & logo. While working at Bluesponge, I had the opportunity to collaborate with the design team on a consultation basis during the conception, design and testing phases of the project. At the beginning, collaborated with Catherine Lai to refine the content architecture behind the main concept lead by Marian Kolev (creative director) in collaboration with Guillaume Bilodeau and the Bluesponge team. Later on, I was supporting the enthusiastic and rigorous work of Thierry Gilles, lead interaction designer. Together, we had the opportunity to test low fidelity prototypes and activities with a group of Canadiens fans. The amazing artwork and interactive timeline that you see on the website is the result of the meticulous work of Richard E. Flanagan and Jean-Francois Clermont. This project received various awards including the 15th Annual Communicator Award, the Webby's 13th Annual Honoree, the Web Marketing Association’s annual Award for outstanding achievement in web development, and was also featured in the Communication Arts Magazine. The project management work was lead by Eve Bedard and Phillipe Andraos.
User research with Canadiens fans
Two of the pictures presented here come from the sessions that we ran with various Canadiens fans, in order to inform our design process. We invited them to build a collage from a bank of images, and asked them to explain the significance of the images and the arrangements they chose.
