Hello, I'm Nathan Potts
I believe in. . .

Projects

Content Optimization

Content Optimization was the project I focused on at General Motors (GM) where I was responsible for the User Experience and Design of the Content Optimization Tool, an internal business application. Due to confidential nature of the project, please contact me for further details.

Pacers and Racers

Pacers and Racers was a redesign for a local business that specializes in selling running equipment. As part of that, they wanted to keep track of races scheduled by users. I was responsible for taking the race calendar and race results of the website and turning it into development code using WordPress.

One Handed Video Game Controller

This personal project is intended to create a one-handed video game controller. I wanted this video game controller to have an aesthetic that appeals to people outside of the accessibility community and allows people who may not be able to play video games with a two-handed video game controller
