NASA needed an application to facilitate the quick and reliable transcription of conversations during a series of rapid-fire roundtable discussions conducted at their Launch conferences. Fortunately, Bolster Labs (Chalk + Chisel) and I were up to the task.

Designing a Tool

With me working on the UX and visual design of the project, Bolster got to work building an app that enabled note-takers to quickly and easily keep track of the rapid-fire conversations that take place during NASA’s Launch conferences.

Made to Fit In

What resulted was not only an iPad application, but an entire system of equipment and support tools for note-taking. Consideration was given to every angle: from what device form factors would be ideal for the setting, to the sort of keyboard that worked best and was most space-efficient.

On-Site UX Feedback

Bolster provided on-site setup and monitoring of the system. I was able to tag along to multiple events to see in-person how the application was used, and find ways to improve it.
