The idea for this project came from an experience I had a few months ago where I was verbally assaulted in a park while walking my dog in the early morning. I was followed by a man who shouted obscenities, hate speech, and threats at me – and no bystanders stopped, intervened, or checked to see if I was okay. This got me thinking about the Bystander Effect and what bystanders can do to support others as reported incidents like this appear to be on the rise. Here are just a few strategies:
I had a challenging time locating classic clipart in a file format that could be pulled apart, so I decided to use a vector icon from Flaticon instead. The original icon is featured on the first slide and the few design elements contained in the project are pulled from it. A few textures and patterns were added as accents.

The objective of this challenge – Bring This Medical Training Course Back To Life– is to resuscitate an actual project that needs a little doctoring. Given an existing PowerPoint slide deck and some basic project requirements, my task was to give this training a little medical makeover.
The objective of this challenge – Gate Screens in Online Courses – is to design a two-slide interaction that includes a content screen and a gate screen.
Inspired by my experiences with Zen Buddhism while living and travelling in East Asia, I decided to construct an interaction based on a collection of Zen teachings referred to as The Gateless Gate – but more accurately translated as The Gateless Barrier.
This project is a playful take on one of the more well-known Kōans from this collection: entitled Joshu’s Dog. Like many Zen puzzles, the answer is not always obvious, but deeper investigation of the question can reveal greater truths.
The objective of this challenge – Show Us Your Best Folder Tabs Interactions – is to design a 5-tab interaction as a way to chunk content into meaningful sections—or tabs—so learners can remain focused in the moment without jumping out to new slides.
I chose to build a simple interaction containing drug information for a medication called Escitalopram. The background image is by yanayla courtesy of FreePik.
I decided to construct a simple radio-button interaction to show the comparison. The introduction screen used a free stock video clip by Obstakl on Clipcanvas as the slide background. I carried this background pattern throughout the rest of the project.
