MOBILE APP FOR iOS & ANDROID

THE GIG
iOS & ANDROID Mobile App Prototypes.

THE DEAL
This was an after-hours project to help out the sales team while working on a contract for DOL/Job Corps. The team is pitching a Student Mobile App for the thousands of Job Corps Students across the country to use on a daily basis. Safety is a key issue at the Job Corps Center, so that concept is featured prominently. These 24-screen Prototypes include campus and building maps, student schedules, cafeteria menus, campus contacts.


MINIMAL RESPONSIVE BUSINESS PROMOTIONAL SITE

THE GIG
Ground-up redesign of an antiquated legacy business site.

THE DEAL
This was another after-hours project to pitch in while working on a contract for DOL/Job Corps. The Contracting company had a very dense, confusing, non-responsive site and sorely needed an upgrade. This new version is lean, mean,mobile-first, gets all crucial content on one page while putting the focus on their recent success winning large, high-profile contracts with NASA, the DOL & The FCC. 
(These are initial design comps. Project is currently in development.)


MOBILE APP FOR iOS

THE GIG
iOS Native Mobile App to compliment core software suite.

THE DEAL
This is a robust booking system for ASL Interpreters and their clients. Includes real-time appointment booking, video chat, multiple profile and user types and detailed reporting views. I was the sole UX/UI designer on this ambitious project.


INTERACTION DESIGN + DESIGN LANGUAGE  + STYLE GUIDE FOR ENTERPRISE APPLICATION

THE GIG
Web-based Style Guide. (excerpt displayed here)

THE DEAL
I designed the Design Language and an Interactive Style Guide for a new responsive SaaS Enterprise application. The final version had "code-box" spill-downs to allow in-house developers to cut and paste code directly from the front end style guide.


DUCKWORTH PROPERTIES

THE GIG
Responsive Portfolio Website, Project Photography, Art Direction


THE DEAL
Clay Duckworth and his ridiculously hard-working crew are the best custom home builders in Austin, TX. This was ground-up brand redesign. Clay was looking to convey solidity and masculinity - with a bit of Texas. Done deal! Clay also needed a hand pulling his content together, so I collected and edited content, did all the copy writing for the new site and arranged photo shoots of a dozen of his recent high-end job sites to get his portfolio jump started.


MOBILE CALENDAR APP

THE GIG
Mobile Calendar App for Parents and Caregivers at multiple households.

THE DEAL
This was an in-house project, partnering with a development team in NYC. The app synchs with Google Calendar and has a few unique custom features and alternate color themes.


VIRAL VIDEOS

THE GIG
Multiple Video Campaigns distributed across a full range of social media channels.

THE DEAL
I was the creative lead on a number of campaigns that included videos for social media while working as Creative Director for CSD. I scripted, edited and produced:

  • An online ad we did with UBER in an effort to draw traffic to their booth at Deaf Nation Expo and sign up deaf UBER Partner Drivers
    UBER Campaign Video (1 of 2)
     
  • A  promotional video to highlight the company's global involvement and reach.
    MORE IS POSSIBLE Campaign Video
     
  • An extended length TV video commercial (1:40), to raise awareness and funds for Deaf Olympians who typically pay for all their training and travel out of pocket. 
    USADSF Campaign Video 
    (NB: Low quality "stock" soundtrack was added to this piece after my tenure – I strongly recommend watching this video muted.)
     
  • A social media promotional video to highlight the 40th anniversary of the company
    COMMUNICATION REIMAGINED Campaign Video

OBJECT WISE

THE GIG
Minimal Responsive website.

THE DEAL
This busy Canadian IT Staff placement agency wanted a simple promotional site for their growing business. This was part of a larger package which included a new brand identity package I developed for them as well.

 


LIZ NEWELL

THE GIG
Brand Identity, Print Collateral, Responsive Portfolio Website Interface Designs


THE DEAL
Liz Newell is a high-profile Realtor selling premium homes in the best residential areas of Austin, TX. I worked with her and her team to design and develop a fresh Brand ID package and responsive promotional website. The brand ID aspect of the project was a unique design challenge in that her Brand ID had to be used in tandem with her parent company's brand, so it had to compliment it. I developed a crisp, understated Brand ID to suit her needs and paired it with an elegant, minimal, luxurious set of interface designs to be delivered to a specialized third-party developer for the build-out.


GENEROUS ART

THE GIG
E-commerce Website, Custom E-commerce CMS, Custom Event Management Tools

THE DEAL
Design + Build solution for this unique E-commerce site that allows buyers to purchase art online while donating a percentage of the profits to a local non-profit of their choice. The CMS featured numerous business management tools.


SHERRY MATTHEWS MARKETING AGENCY

THE GIGS

Live Fee Tobacco Austin : Honor Someone
I was proud to have designed and produce the ‘Honor Someone‘ section of this amazing informational website that houses a growing collection of personal testaments about how individuals lives have been negatively affected by tobacco smoke - and it won a Webby!

Healthy Texas
I designed and managed the development of the the government program information site for the Texas Insurance Board. It is clean, easy to access and fast - just like good health care!


SQUARESPACE  & SHOPIFY CUSTOMIZATIONS

SQUARESPACE
New customers often come to me with a very tight budget and sometimes very little time to get their website online. In these instances I’ll work with them to design, populate and launch low cost, clean and simple customized SquareSpace websites in relatively short order. And hey – I'm a SquareSpace Circle Member, recognized by SquareSpace for innovative use of their platform!

SHOPIFY
I’ve designed dozens of custom large-scale e-commerce websites over the years, but sometimes a client comes to you and they need an e-commerce site for a small project and they simply do not have the budget for a full custom site. Customizing Shopify e-commerce sites can be just the ticket for those plucky entrepreneurs - and it is also a very speedy solution for mid-sized sites of some complexity.
