Sky Deck

2017 | Interaction (and Coercive) Design, User Experience

Improves the deck on the roof of the ART building at The University of Texas at Austin. Currently, the space is used as an area where people can smoke without getting caught. By adding greenery and promoting the space, the Sky Deck would become a hub of activity, which would discourage smoking.

I created Sky Deck with Kathy Vong. I designed the floor plan/layout of the deck and the promotional mockup on the elevator while Kathy painted in plants to mockup the space.
