Mario Ruiz: HP Portfolio
My professional portfolio.
This is a portfolio of my professional work at Hewlett-Packard in the HP Design team as the User Interface Design Lead from April 2004-March 2008. My experience in the HP Design team was divided into three major horizons, each core to one another. All of this work was done in deep collaboration with the HP business units to foster uptake and implementation.

Events and Publications
Tags: mobility, gaming, publication, visual design, graphic design, interaction design
In addition to my role as UI Design Lead, I worked on producing a bi-monthly publication highlighting design successes at HP. This was produced in collaboration with a team of designers. My role was to act as chief editor of the content and concept development.

For the Connecting '07 Design Conference held in San Francisco, my role was chief producer of an urban, mission-based, multi-media game for the attendees of the conference. Leveraging a new HP mobility technology, the game coordinated almost 300 people roaming the streets of San Francisco via GPS and texts on mobile phones.
