Scardy Squirrel : MEIC’s 2012 Best Mobile App Winner

Category: Mobile, Tablet
Client: Corus Entertainment

A team of 3 including myself competed against 8 other teams for Best Mobile App, at Mobile Experience Innovation Centre’s 2012 Mobile App Camp. Over a 3-day period, the goal was to create a prototype of a mobile app for a selected client. The team and I fell in love with “Scardy Squirrel,” an adorable character from a world recognized children’s book series. The client wanted a highly interactive book reading experience.

Result: Using UX theory and Agile, we won 1st place! “Best All-Around App” and “Best App based on Corus Entertainment Properties”. We designed a tablet version, full of games and interactivity for their upcoming holiday book.

Salsa Dancing Studio Template

Category: Web, Fun

Keep Dancing Studio is a template designed and developed by myself (Jean Le). While browsing through a number of dance studio websites, I saw opportunity for innovative design and improved usability both for the user and the administrator. Currently, many sites ask users to sign up using the traditional e-mail or phone number, which can be cumbersome and can result to lost business.

Solution: For design, I wanted to accentuate the romance and sexiness of dancing, through the use of simple but powerful deep colours, beautiful photos, and smooth mouse-over animations. Obviously, this template is assuming a brand of maturity and sensual connection. As for improving efficiency, I created a database to record registered students for the class. Searching for available classes was also simple as well, using a search filter.

Languages Used: HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, jQuery, XML, MySQL, jQuery
Software Used: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator
