Overview » Neighborhoods in Tokyo is a microsite that showcases three of my favorite spots in Tokyo. After studying abroad, I wanted to show what daily life is like there - quiet, casual, routine. I did this by combining pastel colors with photography and iconography. On top of making this site responsive, I had fun experimenting with an unusual box navigation.

Navigation » For the site's navigation, I decided to do something a little different to match the quirkiness of the branding. Here is an early prototype I made to visualize how it works.

Responsive Design » I challenged myself to build this site to adapt to any screen size.

What else? I’m curious about how we can make modern tools work for people. So any role that lets me bring customers into how everyday products and services are made would be a nice fit. Think user research and testing, interaction design, or content strategy. The emerging technology space is always changing, so I’m always learning.
