On Originalities you will find my old art. I have now moved to a new personal site. Please visit the link below for my current writing:

Overcast days make for the best pictures Eternal God Met two cool people and was a guest on the @womenintechshow podcast!
⋯✦⋯
Listen to the episode on my blog byhananiah.com (link in bio). What fun it is to sit down and sketch the first draft of a new app mockup.
⋯✦⋯
This how I design an app or software feature:
⋯
1. Recieve a brain dump from the person who has the concept. Scribble these thoughts down in bullet point format in one of my many notebooks.
.
(My current notebook is red with a vintage anatomical heart, which might seem a little goth, but I just intend for it to remind me not to be an emotionless robot in life.)
⋯
2. Sketch draft of initial app flow. I don't pay much attention to details at this point. It's intended for a high level proof of concept to make sure the features' structures I in envision in my head will work in two dimensions on the screen.
⋯
3. Create the screens as wireframes in the computer. Polish as I go to add detail and fill in gaps from the sketches.
⋯
4. Then I send for feedback and we iterate. This is my least favorite part, as often complicated technical questions come up I have to figure out, and I have to think at a high level of detail.
⋯
5. I take the final wireframes and create "pixel perfect" designs with color and fonts and pretty layout in Adobe Illustrator.
⋯
Then we're done with the mockups! Magic accomplished.
⋯✦⋯
(Please add occasional half-steps for procrastination. To rejuvenate my mind, of course. Heh. That's what I'm doing right now by making this post.) Found in the mental disorders section. Misplaced? I disagree with anyone who sees introversion as a disadvantage. Valentine's Day evening well spent learning a fitting song

An advantage of sketching initial web mockup ideas for yourself is that you get to be very profound with your placeholder text.
⋯✦⋯ Inspiration. Freehanding a game of 3d tetris is not the easiest thing I've ever done. But if you look past the non-parallel lines and rectangles that should be squares, I think this is a playable view.
⋯✦⋯
I'm a total nerd, and love to play 3d tetris while listening to books. However, I have been unable to find a modern web version of 3d tetris, and resort to playing an ancient Flash version.
-
Since I am a web designer and have developer friends, we've discussed making an html5 version of 3d tetris, in addition to a mobile app that is actually playable.

This project has yet to come to fruition, but perhaps someday. It's a high priority item on my list of ambitious personal projects.
