Visual Design, Interaction Design, UX Research

Objective

Extend NPR One reach to top automotive smartphone projection telematics/entertainment systems.

Design Research

I studied automotive HCI research, platform development guidelines, and Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (via nhtsa.gov) to help NPR create an organizational opinion on simple-HMI design.

UX Strategy & Vision

I created app structure diagrams, wireframes and prototypes to visualize the design principles. I balanced user goals with business goals to drive decision making.

Visual Design

Using a simplified design framework and flattened app structure, I created simple designs with an emphasis on driver safety and simplicity of use.

Planning & Scope Definition

My research helped prioritize and negotiate features for launch and beyond.
