Bernard Kowalski interaction design + {code}

I'm here to make interacting with digital products a more positive experience for us all.

Interactive Window Display

StudioWyssen asked for my help in creating a window display which would attract attention. I used Processing, Microsoft Kinect, and a projector to create AirDraw—a canvas anyone can draw on using their hand as the stylus. The interactive display quickly became a hit and successfully attracted the attention of almost every passerby.

Swisscom ITeam Magazine

While working with the team at Nothing Interactive one of the challenges I faced was bringing one of Swisscom's Flash-based internal magazines into the mobile era. The solution was a Drupal based rebuild with a modern front-end utilizing responsive design techniques. The result is an online magazine which is readable on everything from smartphones to huge desktop displays.

Medicine 2.0

Another project I had the pleasure of working on with the Nothing Interactive crew was the design of CSS Versicherung's medicine 2.0 app. I with the user interface and interaction design of both the iPhone and iPad apps. The current version of Medicine 2.0 is rated 5-stars by its users in the Apple App Store.

Avigilon Website

During an extended stay in Vancouver, Canada, I was fortunate enough to join the fantastic people at The Still in working on a couple of high-profile projects. A new website for Avigilon, one of Canada's fastest growing companies, was one of these projects. My focus on the site design was highlighting the imaging power which differentiates Avigilon from its competitors.

CallWave Fuze UI

Working with MORE+1 (a now defunct agency) I was charged with designing the user interface of a colaboration software which would eventually become CallWave Fuze, and is now known as FuzeBox. The biggest challenge was working as much as possible within the limitations imposed by Flex and its UI kit.
