Hey, I’m Spencer and I create interactive, adaptive user experiences that challenge conventional user interaction. I’m a detail-oriented, creative problem solver who is driven by my passion for art and design.Locked Pro Plan feature
Designed fluid and personal user interfaces for a data management application. Wireframed adaptive user flows for data storage, created mockups and worked alongside the development team to launch new application features. Redesigned aspects of the company site allowing for increased accessibility and clarity of information.
An immersive and interactive virtual reality experience allowing the viewer to explore changing architectural styles over time. • Conceptualized, developed and displayed a reactive piece. • Optimized the UX design to create effective but engaging user interaction reducing playtime, allowing a greater number of users to participate without sacrificing quality. • Received the Ryerson New Media META Faculty Choice Award! https://spencerjhoughton.com/index.php/portfolio/memory-fades/
