To demonstrate to target audiences that the Kato collar boosts performance through safety, and that Guardian Athletics is an industry leader in preventing football injuries (commonly referred to as burners and stingers), as well as concussions though a trade show booth experience.
Guardian Athletics are a small start-up that created the Kato Collar, a revolutionary new safety device for contact sports, especially football. The problem that they are facing is that there have been quite a few "football collars" out in the market previously, and some of them have limited the range of motion for a player's head or were just so overly bulky, that player felt that these were for young football players and not for high school or college level football. With this "Collar Stigma", Guardian Athletics has gone out to various trade shows to demonstrate how their collar, with a low profile and full range of motion, is a necessary piece of contact sport equipment, reducing head related injuries by up to 70%.
To create real data for the public on police interactions, arrests and abusive and violent behavior on both subjects and authorities behavior.
Software for Good developed the SafeSpace app to help minorities when they have interactions with authorities. When the user of the app does have an interaction with authorities, they can activate the app to request other users to come to the location of the interaction to witness and possibly document the interaction. With these recorded interactions, real data can be collected to provide a clearer picture of how much police hostility goes unchecked versus the communities negative view of authorities.

Due to declining sales, Pillsbury was looking to reposition the marketing of their checkout counter recipe books. From a UX standpoint, they were positioned at the wrong end of the user journey - people would see them at the end of their shopping experience, after they were already done shopping and had their ingredients for a meal. With this thought, the user needed to have an idea of what they wanted to make at the beginning of the user journey. The most logical solution was to create an app, where the user could find a recipe and the ingredients with incentivising coupons for those ingredients. The user could also see how others rated the recipes or get ideas for meals from a social networking component in the app as well.

The player data could also be accessed and detailed forms printed out from their website.

After looking at the competition in outdoor boots, it seemed they all had either a landscape shot of the mountains, forest, or a photo of a bear (or all three). Wanting to separate them from the competition, I used icons and silhouettes of the outdoors that all outdoorsmen know: binoculars, duck call, shotgun, compound bow, animal tracks, etc. to create a framework that would hold fun facts/quips about hunting and the outdoors. Also the camouflage pattern was created using various animal silhouettes.
