Case study:
"Trace" fragrance identifier

A from-scratch project. View it in Figma to see how I turned a prompt into viable onboarding copy.

Case study:
Handshake app rewrite

The final project for UX Writing Fundamentals involves an app called "Handshake". It's a pay app designed to help contractors and business owners interact.

In the original assignment we were asked not to change the design too much. Treat it like someone's work! Leave notes for a design review.

Now that the course is over I'm giving the app another overhaul. I'm currently working toward:

Reduced cognitive load

Adding missing functions

Improved accessibility
