Fundrive

Fundrive is CiTR 101.9 FM’s annual fundraising phone drive. Every year, they have a different funding target, this one being the new website. Although I have designed a number of CiTR Fundrive campaigns, this one was the most ridiculous. I went sarcastic, and they loved it.

CuddleBit

During the summer of 2015, I was hired to help redesign a one degree of freedom (1-DF) zoomorphic social robot. The goal of the project was to (re)create a believable and enticing breathing motion modelled after a multi-DF robot called the CuddleBot, itself a relative of the Haptic Creature. We were (and still are) in the early stages of design where we want to explore as many form factors as possible, the robots needed to be small, cheap, and easy to iterate on. As such, I developed two design systems through an iterative lo-fi process: the rigid RibBit(s) and the furry FlexiBit(s). Both systems have produced robots that have been used in perception studies through the SPIN Lab.

Syrup Trap Print Edition

In the summer of 2015, Geist magazine decided they wanted a mini version of the Syrup Trap inside their magazine, so we produced the first (and probably last) Syrup Trap print edition. My role was to design and produce the magazine—all design elements are mine, illustrations by Zoe Sees.

CoVis

At the beginning of 2014, I began consulting for the Cultural Evolution of Religion Research Consortium (CERC) as a developer for their text analysis system, and was eventually asked to rebuild it to support extra features (you can check out the code here, releases are not guaranteed to be stable). Later in the year, I took CPSC 547, and built a system for visualizing the data produced, which is at paulbucci.ca/covis. The full documentation of the design process can be found on the CPSC 547 projects page, but included here is a brief overview. Character collocation The scripts developed for CERC involved calculating the distances between key words in ancient Chinese literature, as illustrated below. CoVis The CoVis system takes collocation data in the form of a CSV and produces interactive visualizations of the key metrics.

Org charts

In 2014, CITR wanted two versions of their org chart—one that expressed the hierarchy of the station explicitly, and one that expressed the way the CITR community felt about their station. Credit to Station Manager Brenda Grunau for concept.

Backyard Biodiversity

Designs for the Backyard Biodiversity exhibition at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum. The exhibition was developed in conjunction with the Children’s Writers and Illustrators of BC. Each section of the exhibition space corresponded to a book and environment theme such as the ocean, the park, or the forest. Activities and display cases reinforced learning about the animals one could find in each environment. The exhibition was designed to accommodate children 5-10 years old and their parents. Posters Each poster was a 120inx44in scene-setting backdrop, reflecting the context of the animals on display in nearby cases, as well as the context of the children's book that was featured in the area. Posters were used as promotional materials in and around the museum. Promotional materials Space diagrams The content of the exhibition was curated by a team of researchers and education experts. My role, outside of designing print materials, was to visualize the exhibition space in a way that allowed the curation team to fine-tune the experience of visitors. Shown here is an example of some of the diagrams created as part of the process leading up to installation. Label automation The label system was designed for effecient layout using InDesign's built-in automation features.
