If you've been down on the three floor in the last few weeks you might have noticed some historical oil paintings hanging around. These ten paintings are part of the restored TC Historical Portraitures collection. For the last few weeks I have been gathering research, stories and documents about each painting with the help of the amazing Jennifer Govan and Pocketknowledge. We have uncovered a lot of interesting facts about each person depicted in their portrait and the artist who created the painting. Each teacher, dean, administrator and president have contributed to TC duri...
Greetings from DC!
Andrew, Lauren, and I are perched here on the 3rd floor of the impressive Walter E. Washington Convention Center where AERA, now in its 100th year, is in full swing!

I did several user testing for a website, mobile applications, tablet applications and my thesis project during this semester. My design process revolves around an idea, research and analysis, rapid prototyping, user testing, visualization, and iteration. From the prototyping step, user testing was involved in every step and I could evaluate and iterate for better solutions. I started with the paper prototype and tried interactive prototypes with different kinds of tools. I learned a lot about users' perspective and mistakes from their experience.
In the process of user testing, researching...
As a designer who's been an in-house designer for quite some time, I've always been interested in solving a particular kind of challenge: How can we, ourselves, utilize ‘new' things and new technologies without the need or expense of an agency solution?
