Ting Zhou / Co-design CareRN for Newly Graduated Nurses to Deal with Burnout
The slogan of this app is “take a moment to take care of yourself”. It is a “safety-house” for newly graduated nurses. In this “safety-house”, users are able to utilize fragmented time between work to seek support, do mental exercise, connect with others, and talk to themselves. The designing process of this app was under the principle of human-centered design and design thinking. To ensure that the app was designed based on the need of target users, app designers co-designed the app with experienced nurses, nursing professors, and newly graduated nurses. Multiple rounds of testing were done by bringing prototypes to target users. Based on testing results, refinements were made by designers.

Tamara McLean / "Home" Augmented Reality Mural Project
Intentionally abstract the vertical lines of the painted mural represent trees and corresponding shadows. “Home” is subtly implied through the neighborhood silhouettes of houses on the horizon. Together these elements symbolize the many tree filled neighborhoods throughout Green Bay. The Adobe Aero augmented reality scene represents woodland critters that move in the foreground. The cast of characters include animated an origami deer, fox, owl, squirrel and hummingbird. An ambient sound loop added to the experience.
