As the Senior Designer at Dashwire — a subsidiary of HTC — I was able to help roll-out Reflect for the French mobile carrier Orange in 2011. Reflect was an aggregator of all the content on your mobile device and allowed you to interact with your content and contacts via a web interface. It had been a part of Orange’s customer service initiatives, the intent was to onboard the customer quickly and easily. I was brought in on a short contract to conduct user research, identify and prioritize UX, Visual, & Interactive Design challenges. Once identified and prioritized — and after a heuristic evaluation of their current UI/UX — there begins the work of ideating, sketching, wireframes, visual design, rapid prototyping & interaction design models, and development.
