Thesis Statement

Ons Wireless Speaker

Smart speakers featuring an artificial intelligence is becoming popular in the American home. Devices such as Google Home and Amazon Echo is reportedly selling more than ever. According to a report from Catalyst, the smart speaker market grew a record of 187 percent in the second quarter of 2018. By triggering the device using voices, people can easily interact with the speaker to control their smart home devices from TV, thermostat, to music and others. These intelligent speakers shared simple designs language across the board, they all feature cylindrical shapes, small, and tedious. Due to its small form factor, the limitations of these speakers lie in the sound quality, limited functions, and unpleasant form. With this in mind, I intend to create a luxury smart speaker for the home that features a smart artificial intelligence, powerful sounds driver, and above all, an exceptional aesthetics piece.

University of Nebraska Lincoln
Graphic Designer

UI/UX designer for web and mobile applications across the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus. Projects included Love Library’s “Big Red Ruckus.” Launched in September 2018, the goal of this was to educate first-year students on the many library resources across campus. The UX based on a “gaming” concept. Students were challenged to complete 5 activities for a chance to win prizes while learning about resources. Another project, due to launch in the fall of 2019, is an app-based course schedule system that students could use to explore classes, find classrooms and manage the schedule. This will tie into their MyRed account to allow for managing of class requirements, prerequisites, and registration. In addition, I design traditional printed materials including infographics and posters.
