Where it all began ...


With design shifting towards web, as a print/graphic designer I was often tasked with designing for web. I was very fortunate that my company enrolled me in a part-time web course at Shillington college geared towards graphic designers, which gave me better understanding of how the two work together. As a result, I was able to redesign a total of four company websites, including motoguzzi.com.au, the first website I coded from scratch myself.

Having a background in design, I can often draw upon my knowledge of user experience, design fundamentals and concept development to help plan out my web applications, so that they are not only functional but also user friendly.

Wireframe


Wireframes are meant to be simple, to let you focus on the informational hierarchy, the content arrangement and user experience, before adding all the aesthetics.

I wanted to build a drag and drop wireframing application for non-designers who aren't familiar with wireframing. And wanted to encourage the use of a 12-column-grid design system that will help stylise the layout and rows for the spacing on the page.

WasteNot


Food Waste is a huge problem, so we wanted to build a web application that made it easy for people to share any surplus food, instead of throwing it away.

We thought that it was a great way to create public awareness about food waste, and also connect with your local community to do your bit to help the environment!

doctor

Dental Portal


Very often patients would like to be more informed when selecting a doctor for a particular procedure. So they could find a doctor who is best suited to their current needs.


I wanted to develop a web application that allowed doctors to easily update their information so that patients can find out more about what they do best.
