I designed the visual interface and branding (including 508-compliant color palette) for a mobile application for travelers. This app is created for persons planning a trip or returning from travel within geographical areas countries at high risk for Zika or Zika-affected regions.
The Tagr team realized that although street art and mural art were being created, it wasn’t being captured or archived. Nor were artists being recognized for their fantastic work. Art lovers couldn’t find artwork in realtime or missed the opportunity to see it while it was still up.
After interviews with artists and art lovers, we wanted to create a space for people to identify and preserve artwork from all over the world. The app was created for artists to share their story and to be recognized for their creative contributions.
The app launched in the App store in March 2016.

User personas are a fictional profile of an actual type of website/app visitor that defines their goals and behaviors. These helps us better understand what visitor types expect to experience and want to accomplish by using a digital product.

It indicates the priority and hierarchy of tasks that may be performed by different user types. It takes all the features (or tasks) you’d like to include on your website/app and puts a weighting of importance to each one.
