This work order app was designed to show an employee the sequences of steps necessary to produce the required products after a work order number has been scanned. This version of the app would run on a tablet and coincide with a manager desktop app that provided the ability to edit the sequence steps and leave notes for the employee tasked with fulfilling the order. The core of the app is essentially two checklists, one of the various sequences of steps, and another of the steps themselves within the sequence. The steps section is where the employee would see notes left by a manager as well as post their own, open PDF documents with instructions, and see if a step has been already completed by another employee.
During the design process this app went through several iterations before going into development. Below are the final and first versions of the design. One of the biggest changes throughout this process was working out who could add notes, and how they would be viewed or added.
(1/6) Scan Work Order Number
(2/6) Enter Work Station
(3/6) Squence Steps
(4/6) Enter a New Note
(5/6) Added Note by Employee
(6/6) Open PDF Instructions
(1/7) Scan Work Order Number
(2/7) Sequence Steps
(3/7) Open PDF Instructions
(4/7) Step Notes Modal
(5/7) Edit Existing Step Note
(6/7) Add New Step Note
(7/7) Step Notes Updated
This app was designed for a lumber company as part of a larger project. The requirements were for a manager to be able to review up-to-date inventories and production across several mills on a mobile device. These wireframes depict the app being launched from within the Valence Portal, a larger suite of business tools. The wireframes demonstrate how the app user can navigate between the different sections using the bottom nav bar, and than swipe right or left to see summaries of the various locations.
I created this mockup of a potential UX portfolio design to become more skilled with Sketch. This personal project was an unequivocal success for me. I reached a proficient skill level with Sketch, and explored ideas for an eye catching UX portfolio site.

The social media manager app was designed to run within an existing business management web browser based portal. The app would provide an easy way for a company to review and coordinate their social media pressence. Similar stand alone tools may be more robust, but this management app would run within a larger portal, along side many other essential business management apps, adding a degree of convenience while being less complex.
This is the Social Media Manager App landing screen. In the main left panel all the company's social media are listed in the grid with some key info such as date-time and platform. The right hand column is in an empty state because no posts have been selected yet.
Once one or more posts have been selected from the main table. The details of the post can be seen in the right panel. These posts could then be edited directly in the panel making use of the various dev tools.
The types of posts populating the main table can be filtered by social media platform using a drop down in the top app bar.
Here is the table filtered to show only Facebook posts, with none selected.
This is a small sample of some of the web design work I have done.,
