UI/UX Software Design - Inq-ITS Virtual Labs
Inq-ITS is self-grading science software for middle and high school students.
I did all graphical and UI/UX design for the software, and did all work designing and creating the website.
UI/UX Specific Case - Inq-ITS "Leaky Funnel" Project
The Leaky Funnel redesign project was an overhaul of the Inq-ITS software interface to make the flow easier to understand for new users. I designed and created all wireframes, mockups, and assets related to this project.
My focus in this redesign was ensuring that users always understood where they were in the software and had direction on where to go when first logging in. Since many of our users (teachers and administrators) are older or otherwise not tech-savvy, I moved away from using icons without wording to help users without native icon knowledge, and used larger font sizes since our users are more likely to have sight impairments.
After implementing my design changes, user retention for Inq-ITS dramatically increased, and we now receive a fraction of the help tickets and calls that we did with the older design.
Mobile UI/UX & Graphic Design - Ride The Bus App
Ride The Bus is a drinking game app coming to iOS and Android.
I did all UI/UX and graphic design for the app.
Game UI/UX & Graphic Design - EcoKids and the Paper Pests
EcoKids and the Paper Pests is an educational game on invasive species made in 2015.
I was the lead graphic designer and asset creator on the team.
Product Design - Stickers and Games
In addition to digital graphic and UI/UX design, I have made multiple physical products.
All products shown below are entirely my own work.
My name is Patrick Roughan, and I'm a creative living in Boston, MA. I started off doing game development, and have expanded to UI/UX design, graphic design, ink illustration, writing, and anything else that fulfills my need to create.
I am looking for a full-time position in UI/UX design or an adjacent field. I am a self-motivated employee who’s always up for a challenge, as shown by my experience founding a start-up company and being in a leadership role for multiple projects. I am highly adaptable to different software and development methods and will make your product’s user flow the best that it can be.
