AMNESTY LEADERSHIP is the platform created for Amnesty International. It is a place where board members, directors and other members of the movement can learn and find resources on the governance issues, such as development, staff recruitment, solving conflicts, etc. in three different languages (English / French / Spanish).
The platform follows the the consistent layout and branding of Amnesty International with addition to adapted icons and graphics. In the process I also created graphic videos to introduce the platform to new users.
OpenAID is the outcome of the primary and secondary research and design concept for the master thesis for Sustainable Design MA at Kingston University.
"How to create an effective exchange of experiences, skills, knowledge and resources between humanitarian organizations: OPENAID platform."
OpenAID platform uses knowledge, research and a new initiative to built upon existing elements and generate more effective solutions to the identified challenge of aid effectiveness. It is distinctive in its combined objectives, functions, goals and target audience, primary based on the principles of feedback & accountability, transparency and open source. The approach is reflected in its main functions: discovery of existing assets (projects, challenges, members, organizations, etc.), contribution of established projects and new challenges and community of members and organizations.
The platform hopes to generate new knowledge based on personal experience, create a community of expert advisers and inspire all, recent volunteers and fatigued social workers, for uniting for the aid effective solutions.

As a participant of Media in Context Hackathon, organized by Al Jazeera, I was a part of a team of 6 developing the project NEWSCLIP.SE
You can view NEWSCLIP.SE presentation on Vimeo here.
"NEWSCLIP.SE supports the discovery and organization of journalistic information. As we search a variety of data sources for the subjects in your story, you efficiently conduct your research and share the materials with your newsroom.
The main idea behind the project was to build a workbench for reporters that provides similar time-saving tools to what an IDE (integrated development environment) gives to software developers."
My role as a designer was to create an overall design, starting with the logo, color palette and interface design, simple and easy to use by journalists. Testing the platform, I look at various user journey scenarios in order to create an intuitive experience for all.
The project was awarded by Al Jazeera Media in Context Hackathon judges as "Greatest potential for use".

MUZEUM OF JAZZ
Museum of Jazz in New York represents the most famous and influential as well as long forgotten names of jazz musicians across the times and places.

A new exhibition entitled ‘Dream Team’ is an attempt to combine the styles of those jazz singers and jazz players that had never had a chance to make music together during their lifetime, because of the social, economic, geographic issues and also different times they lived in.

After experimenting with paper, its different shapes and forms, and creating series of repetitive systems, I created a final object. I joined a solid top with a skirt, created from hundred of small modular folds. I sew them all together with a color thread to add additional clothing feature to the paper dress. Thank you so much my dear Tandeka, for taking your time to pose for me! You look beautiful on the pictures.
