Advantage X Desktop App

Solo Product Designer  |  Details Coming Soon...

Cars are really just computers... computers that breathe air and explode thousands of times a minute. With a lot to learn from both our customers and R&D team, I dove in head-first to redesign this Windows-based desktop application which allows custom tuners an intuitive way to modify vehicle performance.

CES Consumer App Concept

Solo Product Designer  |  Details Coming Soon...

Our first push to market with our new IoT device was proving the concept at CES 2018. In a few days, I put together an interactive prototype that told the story of our product in the booth. I also worked with our mobile dev team to translate this design to a functional version that allowed live, in-vehicle media demos.
