Sony wanted to make a splash at the 2014 MIPCOM conference in France. As part a launch for their new Ven-ue product they wanted a revolutionary new design to differentiate their Xbox One app from competitors.
I helped Sony by creating a video consumption app with a unique navigational method where viewers were always immersed in content. The background of each page would be a video preview of content to drive discovery. Upon selecting a video, the UI would animate away, transitioning the background into their movie.
When the Seahawks clinched their final playoff victory in 2014 our team got to work creating a scavenger hunt around Seattle to coincide with Super Bowl XLIX. While the strategists figured out the secret locations, I had just one day to craft a brand for the contest.
I wanted to create a logo that instantly felt like Seattle and the Seahawks, while avoiding any specific Seahawks-related iconography due to trademarks. What resulted was a beautiful mark that works equally well on light and dark, and functioned well in our social media campaign. Vertical and horizontal versions were created in order to work well across all our different applications.
Trinity Broadcasting Network is the world's largest religious television network. In a push to refresh their brand, I helped them create designs for almost every video device endpoint in order to get their rich content into as many living rooms as possible.
To start with, I was given a style guide and some early web designs created by another design agency. Using only this, I needed to extrapolate further design elements and figure out how it would translate onto iOS, Android, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV while still remaining true to the brand and keeping feature-sets identical.
Formula One needed a Windows Phone and Tablet app to give their customers access to live race data, and information on tracks and drivers. I reimagined their data into a series of tables and live race tracks in order to get spectators more involved in the action.
The Society of Digital Agencies (SoDA) approached my team about creating an internal microsite for discovering useful software tools.
With a quick turnaround, I worked with a developer to create a rating and filtering system that matched SoDA's brand, but elevated it to a more beautiful level.
Brigham Young University has created a TV channel which has grown rapidly. To facilitate all this growth, I helped to translate their brand and vast content catalog onto a variety of different devices and endpoints.
Each device had its own design quirks and challenges that I had to accommodate, like radically different navigation methods, or strict design guidelines.
For this project, I designed wireframes, then worked tightly with developers in different practices to do the visual design "in-app". This allowed us to see changes quickly, and ensure that adapt to challenges on the fly.
I designed apps for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, iPad, Windows 8 tablet, Windows Phone 8, and Xbox One. All platforms had to be featured-identical, but feel native to their platform.
For an internal product, our team set out to design a video content management system that could assist virtually any type of client with the organization and classification of their video content. Specifically, this tool was meant to bridge the gap between an existing database of disorganized video content and a website displaying all those videos. Something needed to be in between to organize and assign metadata to everything.
Without having a specific client or content collection to design from, our team had to think of example clients and create a set of tools that would translate well to a variety of different use-cases. We created a structure based on video lists, which could be created and edited. Large collections of videos and lists could then be filtered by through different tag structures.
Other features include an upload manager, metadata editing, and a tree editor for managing large amount of episodes and seasons within a certain show.
Tiply's trying to change the way we tip. Using visual face scanning this application allows you to tip anyone around you without having to enter their name, or carry cash.
Myself and one other designer helped Tiply develop their brand, as well as design their website and iPhone app. We wanted to focus on simplicity and speed in order to accelerate the tipping process and let the system do most of the work.
In my free time I like to home brew beer, and make some sweet labels for them too! Here's a little collection of some of my favorite labels I've made.
