Quest of the English Club

The Junior High School English Club adopted a gamified learning approach, weaving English education into a narrative where students are transported to a Magic Academy in an alternate world known as “Esperia” where English fuels magical powers.

The Mekong Journey

For the AIGA DC SHINE Mentorship, I embarked on "The Mekong Journey," a project aimed at capturing and preserving the generational stories and cultural heritage of Lao-American immigrants. Guided by the question, "How might we effectively capture and preserve the generational stories and cultural heritage of Lao-American immigrants to foster understanding and connectivity within and beyond the community?" I conducted interviews and surveys to uncover personal experiences and cultural practices. Key questions focused on participants' origins, knowledge of their ancestors' lives in Laos and initial U.S. experiences, and their engagement in Lao cultural practices.

Through this research, I recognized a generational disconnect and the need to create a platform connecting social media to an archive, preserving these invaluable stories.

The design process involved developing wayfinding tools, creating prototypes, and wireframing potential products. The project evolved into a visualization endeavor documenting and sharing the journey of Lao-American immigrants. Using affinity mapping to identify common themes and opportunities, I developed a comprehensive product design. Reflecting on this journey, I leveraged design thinking to explore and preserve cultural identity, gaining insights into the art of possibility through qualitative research. The final deliverable was a detailed documentation and visualization of the research journey, showcasing personal stories and increasing community awareness. This project not only preserved valuable cultural stories but also enhanced my UX/UI design and research methodology skills, providing a meaningful and impactful experience.

Cyberpunk Vices & Virtues

"Cyberpunk: Vices & Virtues" is an extensive role-playing game campaign designed for the tabletop RPG system, Cyberpunk RED. This project showcases a deep integration of narrative design, graphic and UX/UI design, audio curation, and system implementation within the Foundry VTT platform, creating a rich, immersive gaming experience.

As the Game Master for an extensive Cyberpunk RED campaign, I crafted an immersive narrative that integrates dark futuristic aesthetics with rich character development and intricate plot lines. In preparation for this role, I conducted in-depth research into Future User Interface (FUI) designs as depicted in influential works such as Evangelion, Bladerunner, and the Cyberpunk series, drawing inspiration to enhance the visual and interactive elements of the game environment. This research informed the creation of engaging landing page interfaces on FoundryVTT, contributing to the immersive experience in the Cyberpunk World. This project showcases the ability to manage large-scale creative projects, demonstrates proficiency in digital design tools, and highlights my capacity to create captivating user experiences.
