During the spring of 2018, I worked at DUAL, an architecture firm located in downtown Providence, RI.
While at DUAL, I had two major projects. The first was creating a space visualization for the University of Rhode Island's AI Lab.
My second project was the redesign of DUAL's online portfolio. They sought an innovative take on the traditional architecture website to help them stand out against other firms.

URI AI lab
The URI AI Lab is the first laboratory of its kind to be located within a library. One of the goals behind this was to make AI tools, such as high powered computers and Internet of Thing devices, more accessible to all students.
My role involved piecing together images of the space, floor plans, and DUAL's specifications to create a visualization that could be used for promotional materials during the AI Lab's construction.

There's a certain repetitiveness that comes with portfolios that's difficult for most businesses and people to get away from. I know I have spent way too much time trying to break the norm with my own portfolios. When DUAL challenged me to come up with an innovative approach to their website, I leaped at the opportunity.
I compiled all of my changes into the easy to use style guide below for future website updates:
