Project: Icons, User Interface Design Role: Visual Design, UX Design
For this project I was asked to rethink the current Amazon shopping experience (on tablet devices), from the overall look and feel to the functionality and user experience.
I started by creating a custom icon set and completely new UI for the Shop by Department menu.
I also designed a new top level navigation menu, by reducing down the Amazon logo to just the "A" with arrow. This opened up space for the search menu and additional nav icons, but also served as a design element, which is repeated throughout the UI.
Lastly, I introduced additional colors to the palette. The blue and green background not only compliments the orange accent color but also reflect the colors of the pacific ocean, which was a nod to the Seattle based location.
Project: Coverage Map Expereince Agency: Razorfish Creative Director: Paul Cooper Role: Visual Design, UX Design
While working at Razorfish I was asked to explore some visual and UI concepts around new ways to showcase coverage maps on T-Mobile.com.
My approach was to create a more visually immersive experience in which the user could explore coverage as well as other features, such as WiFi hotspots, tower locations, events, and current promos.
Cascade Engine Center
Project: Responsive Web Design Role: Visual Design, UX Design
I was approached by Cascade Engine Center to re-design their website with a few requirements in mind. It had to be responsive and highlight three main categories, Industrial, Marine, and Power Generation.
This was one of the concepts I presented, which I felt was the strongest. It includes an updated color palette, font treatment, custom icons, and a unique, but still intuitive UI.

Project: App Design, iOS Agency: POP Creative Director: Joel Eby Role: Visual Design
Working from provided wireframes I created two visual design directions for ESPN's fantasy sports app "Streak for the Cash".
The first was a dark theme, in which I used gradients and subtle background textures to create a scoreboard like effect.
The second was a lighter theme, which was inspired by the play book diagrams used by basketball and football coaches.

While working at Karass Creative, I was asked to design a mobile web site for the 2013 Seattle Design Festival. Using the provided brand graphics and color palette I created a simple and functional design which users could browse events either by list or location.
Vital Talk provides services for clinicians to help improve relationships with their patients.
While working at Karass Creative I was asked to design a clean, responsive website that focused on the interpersonal aspect of the company and it’s two main entry points, Clinicians and Teachers. As a group we chose to incorporate Vital Talk's studio photography, combined with subtle typographic elements and custom icons to give it a fresh and inviting presence.
I was asked to create a few conceptual designs to showcase the capabilities of an app called Buzzr, which alerts users with news and updates related to their favorite athletes and/or products. The technology used would allow the app to take many forms, but in this instance it launches as an animated graphic then turns into a static interface.
