Show Me Mobile Apps

At CommunicateHealth, I worked on developing mobile apps derived from the Show Me for Emergencies booklet. The work was funded by the Office of Preparedness and Emergency Management of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Over two mobile apps, I designed over 200 icons and developed interactive features that enhance user experience for people with communication challenges and emergency workers. The free apps are available for Apple and Android mobile devices.
