Change Perspective

Interactive mobile videos that challenge perception. Mobile video has helped spread awareness and expose the problems of racial profiling and police violence. Narrative_ and Visa RushCard, with its goal of helping minority communities typically underserved by banks, wanted to encourage conversation and promote tolerance through a shift in perspective.

Created during my internship at Narrative_  for Visa RushCard, where I worked as the UX/UI Designer on the project.

The Process


Mobile video has played a big part in exposing instances of police violence. Visa Rushcard wanted to address this tragic, yet persistent issue by provoking discussion around racial profiling, police shootings, and violence against police using the same medium.


Based on the observation that people often turn their phones sideways to get a better perspective while watching videos we created short interactive films that challenge bias, triggered by device orientation. We worked with spoken word poet, Black Ice to tell a story that was both compelling and authentic.

I designed the site where the videos would live with the goal of making the interface as intuitive as possible. To make the experience seamless we conducted user testing to determine the best placement and language for the prompts directing users to turn their phones.

By combining technology with the spoken word of poet Black Ice we created dynamic videos telling powerful stories about perception.
