At Inkling, I built various tools to help team members do their jobs more easily. Traverser was a tool that helped editors proof links in digital books. Users could quickly navigate between links using keyboard shortcuts. This turned days worth of work to hours.

Poptip Viewer

Poptip viewer is a tool that visualized every poptip (think interactive footnotes) in the book next to the term that it was associated with. This transformed a task that took an entire day to sometime that took less than an hour. This feature was so useful that it was eventually incorporated into Habitat, Inkling’s publishing software.

Good Eggs Redesign

I began this exploration after watching the Good Eggs video on Service Design. As one of the first touch points in the full user experience, the web experience sets the tone in terms of trust and confidence in the service. It plays an important part in shaping the users understanding this is not just another web store, it is a relationship with local farmers and food producers.

Stages of Nitrogen Loss in Food Production

Many times, I find myself thinking about what the numbers actually are when reading about environmental claims. I’ve decided to start making information graphics illustrating answers to these questions. This first graphic follows the trail of industrially produced nitrogen and the inefficiencies in the process.
