Urbanspoon Android Update
Urbanspoon is refreshing their brand, website and mobile applications. They started with the iOS app and brought me in to apply some of their new ideas and features to Google's latest Android operating system, Lollipop. I also contributed a suite of placeholder graphics and wallpaper for use company-wide.
I got together with the developer to identify weaknesses in the old Urbanspoon app as well as strengths of the new Lollipop OS before working on a few rounds of designs. Once we nailed down a direction we got right into a live build to iterate on the big ideas. We got a lot done in a month! Expect the new app in late January.
Andy Potts Racing - Website & Branding
Andy is a world champion triathlete. We designed something simple that shows the dynamism of the sport and dives straight into the content. In this case, social media takes up the bulk of Andy's internet presence.
I like this scenario because Andy just throws ideas and content at me and lets me do whatever I want :) Full disclosure: Andy is my client, but he is also my brother. He trades me swag for updating his website, a pretty sweet deal.
Blue Rooster Social Platform
The biggest challenge with SharePoint might be the confusing site architecture and inconsistent navigation. With this exploration we looked at consolidating the menus into a convenient, sticky header.
This is an example of a responsive design that I created as a dashboard for a medium sized company portal. The task was to re- imagine the landing page for both desktop and mobile.
MSN Now • Social Media Aggregator
I collaborated closely with managers in the social media departments at MSN to develop a social aggregation tool which pulls from twitter, facebook, bing, youtube etc. and tracks trending topics in real time.
During my year on this project, I worked on early concepts and design iterations. The site was constantly evolving to keep up with the fast paced world of social media sites.
Todd Smith came to me with a need to update his web presence. The aim here is to put the user in front of his architecture portfolio with as little digging as possible.
When it comes to architecture, immersion is the best way to experience a place. I used an image heavy experience and simple navigation to get the most useful information across in the shortest amount of time.
The aim for Abrahams Architects was to give access and display as many examples of their diverse portfolio in a simple slide show format. The final product is a standardized layout that organizes the content in an open-ended fashion.
I worked with the team at Abrahams Architects to conceive and implement the site.
