Medical Device Concept Development
One of my favorite things is working with engineers to turn technical requirements (or even doodles on napkins) into beautiful user experiences through hardware and software design. I was hired to create a group of concepts for an internal, refillable, and portable cartridge designed for insertion into a larger machine. The colors represent days of the week for organization within a filling facility.
Illustration & Interactive Graphics for Training
I was hired by an agency to create a series of illustrations and interactive graphics for a training module to educate new employees on the proper temperatures for storing medical goods. The project included many cool details, such as 3D models for storage rooms, quiz layouts, and this realistic, slightly stylized, interactive thermostat. I'm a fan of skeuomorphism, particularly for training and educational purposes.
Mobile App Visual Design
Tasked with designing an app for an aging population with limited eyesight and dexterity, I created this concept which uses large type, clear iconography, and intuitive controls for ease of use.
Executive Sales Tool Mobile App
Sales executives for a 3D Printing software company needed a tool that would quickly help visually communicate a complicated concept. I created this app to help bridge the gap between executives, sales leaders, and potential customers. The app made pitching 3D printing quick and easy, helping raise awareness of this awesome company. Geomagic was acquired by 3DSystems in 2013.
3D Modeling for Games & Simulation
Many of my passion projects are centered on finding relationships between my artistic skills and new technologies. I love modeling and painting characters and environments, and I welcome opportunities to pursue 3D for the purposes of games, training, or simulation. "Heroine" is a character concept created for one of my personal projects.
"When You Need Someone, Volume One" Album Cover Illustration
Nashville-based singer/songwriter and lifelong friend, Mike Meadows, approached me to create cover art for his upcoming EP. After listening to the album, I imagined bringing his childhood home to life and rooting it in the sky. I created an exact 3D model, at scale, of his family's home, using exterior photos I took and Google Maps. His roots run deep, as the painting depicts, and it felt like a fitting image to represent his album's themes. The EP will be available exclusively on iTunes on March 24.
Switch LED Lightbulb Concept Packaging
My client wanted to showcase the elegant design of its lightbulb in a low-cost, recyclable, and hangable package. I proposed a card design that served a dual purpose: It allowed the bulb to take center stage while also acting as an informative brochure educating shoppers about LED lighting.
Firefly Identity & Package Design
Firefly is a little laser lamp that earned more than $500,000 in a successful Kickstarter campaign. The Firefly's identity, iconography, and packaging design contributed to its success. I received a United States Patent for the packaging enclosure design.
Blood Pressure Monitor Design
When designing an interface for a black and white LCD screen, your options are inherently limited. But I didn't let that stop me. I created this screen detail to demonstrate that even with technical hardware limitations, you can still have beautiful design that is user-friendly.
Commercial Appliance Typography
Typography can be compelling even with the restrictions of 7 and 16-segment LCD displays (like your alarm clock numbers). These concepts for high-end, modern appliance screens depicted a lot of ways masking can be used to create new forms of typography not typically associated with standard 7 or 16-segment characters. Many of my clients approach me to develop concepts that incorporate beautiful design in unexpected ways.
CardAgain Identity Design
I take a lot of pride in working for people and companies I believe in. This identity design is for a company that lets users convert gift card balances into charitable donations to benefit various organizations. A noble idea that needed a cute and joyous, but still serious, identity.
Clementine + Goose Identity Design
I was approached by a maker who wanted an irreverent identity for her handmade, Waldorf-inspired toys. The final identity was inspired by vintage illustration and the playfulness and imagination of the Waldorf era.
