At IBM Design, I observed, reflected, and created alongside a multi-disciplinary team.
I was part of IBM Maelstrom, an intensive three month internship program at IBM Design in Austin, Texas. I collaborated with a multi-disciplinary team of researchers, designers, and developers on three different projects. I engaged in design thinking, ideating, prototyping, playbacks, small wins, late nights, and ping pong tournaments in the studio.
1. "Into the Fold" (Onboarding at IBM)
2. "Tell the Tale" (Recruiting at IBM)
3. "Internet of Things" (IBM Data Analytics)
Tell the Tale
IBM Maelstrom needed a way to sustainably and authentically express its existence, intention, and value to university-based audiences across multiple channels of communication.

Authentic and a bit smart-assed, but with a high production value. Kinetic. Rhythmically-edited and ideally mapping to the cadence of the Edgar Allan Poe story of its namesake.
We built a unique web experience, created short-form video content, and defined the strategy and roadmap for the future of Maelstrom.
