I used to work for a company that created a soccer training app called Soccer-1.
Below are some user flows I created for several different features within the app. They have changed over time and, as I left the company, I have no idea what it looks like now though I’m sure the app is great!
All the user flows took many different iterations and some features (not shown below) were not implemented. For instance, I’m not sure if the progress screen was ever realized.
Working for this company was a lot of fun and I’m glad I got to start with them when they started so that I could have some influence over the path the app took.
I had posted UI samples I have worked on in the past but I did not include everything related to them for various reasons (primarily because they had not been released yet). Now that time has passed, I will update them.
There are 3 major parties in Canadian elections (Liberals (Centre-left), Conservatives (Right), & New Democratic Party (Left)), with several minor parties (Green (Centre-Left), Bloc Quebecois (Centre-Left), etc.). Some are more local parties than others (ie. Bloc Quebecois does not run outside of Quebec – to my knowledge). In the Ontario Provincial Election, the 3 major parties were against each other with the incumbent Liberals facing against the other two. There was a vocal amount of people who did NOT want the Conservatives to win, however I felt they had a good chance because the other 2 parties were splitting the rest of the vote. This made me create this analysis to see if the Conservatives could have lost.
Elections in Ontario are settled by a first-past-the-post system. This means that the party who gets the most number of seats in the legislature wins the election. There are proposed alternatives to this system but elected officials seems unwilling to make any actual change.
End of Background Knowledge
I decided to do an analysis of the 2018 Ontario Provincial Election. I looked at each riding to see if another party could’ve won. Assuming all calculations are correct, the Conservatives would’ve won in all but 1 possible scenario.
If I learned anything from this, it’s that the vote was split between Liberal and New Democratic Party, causing the Conservatives to have an easy win. It would’ve taken serious strategic voting for another result. Alternatively, with proportional representation, it could have been a minority Conservative government.
I was walking down the street one day and saw someone wearing a The North Face shirt that said Never Stop Exploring but I misread it as Never Stop Exploding and was really confused. However, it also inspired me to make the images above, drawing inspiration from two of the most explode prone Pokémon – Voltorb and Electrode!
Maybe this would look good on a T-shirt or print?
Below is a reference image I used as a base for the concept.
This was a design I made after reading through an Illustrator tutorial by Evert Martin.
I took a tiger as my base (see below). After following the tutorial I came out with the above image. It kind of looks more like a bear to me but I like it anyway. It was a quick production to get the feel for Illustrator more so I didn’t spend time on refining it.
You can create some pretty crazy looking things with Martin’s methods – and quickly too!
This was done during my 4th year at OCAD University. It was for the Graphic Novel course. This assignment was to make a comic in black and white. I did a story about a Venezuelan folklore – El Silbon – that my wife told me about.
