My UX and UI Portfolio and Interactive Samples

Welcome to my UX and UI Portfolio.

Currently, I’m building a video streaming application in React, including all UX and UI design and engineering.

The app features full geolocation, switching between front- and rear-facing cameras and a live drawing canvas with colored swatches in the left sidebar. Swipe the screen or click-and-drag to see it in action. The trash icon will clear the canvas.

Feature pipeline includes:

  • Map overlay. This is a work in progress. Click the map icon to pull up the overlay. Map has not been fully implemented yet.
  • User profile setup
  • Sharing of geolocation (available on mobile devices), azimuth, and streaming status
  • Stream recording and data storage
  • Stream sharing

vHyve Video Streaming App UX and UI

The concept is a live video streaming with a drawing interface and map overlay. HTML5 capabilities are used to track GeoLocation and device orientation. On the development roadmap are the following features:

  • Toggle full-screen mode
  • Logging in as new or existing user
  • User profile setup
  • Tracking of user activity, i.e., user’s logged-in status, whether the user is streaming live video, user’s location (if logged in)
  • Map overlay should display logged in users along with their streaming status, device orientations and camera facing directions; icons should appear on map, color-coded by streaming status, with icons rotated to reflect real direction based on compass’ true north
  • Functionality should be accomplished entirely through HTML5
  • Native application development (iOS, Android, etc.)
  • Recording of user’s drawing activity as SVG, possibly with configurable frame rate
  • Screen recording functionality; this should include recording of live media stream as well as user’s drawing activity on separate recorded tracks
  • Cloud storage of recorded media tracks with administrative interface for managing user’s media
  • vHyve Studio module to manage stored media inclusive of post-production tools

I’m also building a React front-end using WordPress as a “Headless CMS.”
