I was part of the team of 4 from Sydney flown over to San Francisco for a Silicon Valley ‘Priceless’ experience and to compete in the World Finals of Masters of Code, by MasterCard. This was no ordinary hackathon, 12 teams, the regional finalists from their respective countries, were flown in to compete, build and present a demo/prototype for an application that makes use of MasterCard’s current and (secret ‘in beta’) APIs.
I was in charge of transforming storyboards and pencil wireframes into HQ final screens creating a great look and feel that ended among the finalists. All done in less than 36 hours.
This is a new client that hired me as a consultant and UI designer for their project. They are based in Sydney and will innovate in a new way to find discounts in your local area in exchange of pictures from specific products on shelves.

Once signed up, Meerkat users had the option of connecting their Facebook and Twitter accounts, to stream directly to their followers as soon as they went live. The app was formerly available for both iOS and Android.
I was in charge of community engagement, content moderation, selection of featured streams, storm-braining, competitor analysis.
