The Bell Moving Planner is a web application that helps users organize their move from one location to the other. Users signup using Facebook or their email, tell us a little about their situation (where they’re moving, whether or not they have a dolly or any pets and that kind of thing) and the moving planner algorithm will determine an estimated time of how long your move will take, indicated by the ‘effort calculator.’
The application provides the user with a basic checklist of things to consider before and during your move and as the user checks things off, the amount of time required decreases showing the user what they have accomplished and how much more is left to do.
Using a Google map the organizer has the option to search nearby services such as laundromats, restaurants, movie theatres, or anything else they can think of.
The application also allows you to invite your friends to be part of your moving crew via Facebook or email and gives them the option to visit your move page to see the details regarding where it is your are going and what needs to be done.
The Google map also provides directions, outlines the travel route and gives the organizer the option to toggle traffic conditions.

At work (@Teehan+Lax) we recently had an internal design competition involving the creation of a website interface for a fictional hot dog company called Tasty Dogs. The interface was to be responsive rendering on the desktop, tablet and mobile and although I wasn’t able to finish my layouts in time I did somewhat finish the identity. It could use some more work but the overall look and feel is there.
Statistical data allows us to understand our past and shape our future. iData is an application to do just that. iData allows you to share statistical data with the world and collectively interpret what it means. Use idata to create, organize, search, share and comment on all kinds of data sets.
With iData you can input, archive and share your own statistical data, view and comment on public data, and share that data using Twitter.
The data is sortable by category and users are searchable by name or username so you can easily find the data you’re looking for.
The interface offers users a navigation to create data, a live search form to search users, and a welcome message that includes the data, time and the logout button.
The left sidebar features the user’s avatar, username, a short biography describing the purpose of the data, and the categories a user has made for their data collections. If the user is on their own profile page they will have the option to delete their categories from the sidebar.
The footer features a secondary navigation along with recent data sets, users and comments.
The home page shows the user how many data sets, categories and comments they have made along with recent additions. Here the user can delete or edit their data.
The profile page is where the user’s data sets are displayed. The data sets are seen within an accordion style menu allowing the user to have multiple data sets open at one time. Clicking on a data set title will open the tab and slide the browser to the top of the section. Active data sets are seen in yellow.
Each data set is equipped with a comments section to allow other users to comment on the data along with a Tweet button to share that data set on Twitter. If a user sees comments they have made on someone’s profile page they have the option to delete it using the red delete button in the bottom right of the comment box.
The Create page is where a user can create a new category or data set, which involves the input of a data set title, a category and base number (the total that the data set represents).
The Add Data page is where the user inputs variables and values for each set.
The Edit page gives the user the option to edit their username, password, avatar and biography. By clicking on a data set edit icon the user will be brought to a new page where they can edit each attribute and value within the data set. The user also has the option to delete a data set in it’s entirety by clicking the trash can icon.
