    website redesign

    This site, launched in 2011, is a redesign for a small marketing and consulting firm in Southern California. The original site was a wordpress template, I wanted to create a simple, one page grid layout with a beachy, washed-out vibe. I used responsive design to create a mobile version of the site as well.

    My good friends asked me to create a prospectus to help acquire funding for their independent film. I took the idea of a large scale prospectus and condensed it into a small, colorful booklet.

  • Rocky Mountain Rollergirls WebsiteRocky Mountain Rollergirls
    website redesign

    In late 2010, the Denver-based Rocky Mountain Rollergirls commissioned me to redesign their website on the heels of them winning the national championship. I wanted to create a site that gave them the feel of a professional sports team with a scrappy roller derby edge.

    Everyone has a vice, even reindeer. And not even the holiday spirit can get them to quit. That was the inspiration for my 2010 Christmas cards. Each reindeer was made from different types of paper and details were drawn by hand. Who know's next year we may have drinking elves.

  • Typographic InspirationInspirational Typography

    These are an experiment in texture and typography; two things I am particularly fond of. The goal was to create motivational style posters with simple, compelling text.

  • Revolution Prep Join PageRevolution Prep

    I was a front-end developer and designer at Revolution Prep, an education company that specialized in tutoring and test prep with a strong focus on technology. I created interfaces for the revolutionprep.com website, and a tutor-finding website called TutorSource. Emails, landing pages, and various marketing collateral were also thrown into my mix of projects. I quickly became accustomed to working in a Ruby on Rails development environment in conjunction with git source control.

  • MPH Banquet TicketsUSC Master of Public Health Program
    annual banquet tickets

    I created these tickets for the 2010 USC Master of Public Health Banquet. The "Old Hollywood" theme lent itself to a typography-heavy style to make the ticket look like it came straight from the 60's. I like to think I was validated when I saw very similar-looking tickets on AMC's popular drama "Mad Men."

  • Business Card Illustrations for Nuangi and MorganFriendly Faces

  • Revolution CareersRevolution Careers
    ui/ux design and illustrations

    I was the resident designer at RevolutionCareers, a site that takes job applications, then allows users to sort and filter the pool to make hiring the right candidate easy. It was intended to be a fully self sufficient HR management hiring system. The project was killed after about a year of work. It was my first time working in a startup environment where I quickly learned the power of iteration in software design.
