Aira, a startup of really smart people from Qualcomm, Intel and Bell Labs, figured out a way
to make wireless connections 10x better. I was contracted by Muddy Gecko to create their brand.
I designed the logo, business cards, email and letterhead templates. I collaborated with the founders and engineers on the design and content of the pitch deck they used to secure vital funding. I was also responsible for the UX, visual and motion design for their website.
DeepSight Technology was another startup I was contracted by Muddy Gecko to design a website to explain the benefits of the technology while keeping how it works in stealth mode. My Muddy Gecko team worked together to create the content, my job was to visualize the benefits in a way that would help DeepSight attract talent and funding. My deep experience in healthcare technology design gave me insight to develop a UX targeted to their desired audience.
My personal appreciation for wine made this project even more fun to tackle. Another Muddy Gecko contract gave me the opportunity to help develop the content for and design and production of the funding pitch deck as well as the UX, visual design and (most of) the motion graphics for their website.
UW DEPARTMENT OF ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES
The primary goal of the client was to feature the link to ‘current conditions’ which is the most visited web page of any on the University of Washington’s website network. They also asked for an animated hero image which I designed into a curved shape outlined by a lighter shade of blue to create an impression of atmosphere.
This client asked me to design and build a website to help recruit more staff for their very busy firm. They needed it to be simple, responsive and easy for potential job seekers to contact them. My biggest challenge was how to design the ‘projects’ page because much of their work is in locations that couldn’t be photographed or cases detailed due to privacy and proprietary concerns. I get it. Their projects include sites for Amazon, Microsoft and the Seattle Seahawks.
I joined Medicity, a healthcare IT start-up as employee #8 after several years working in an agency environment. As in-house Creative Director, I was responsible for eight major website concepts over the course of my tenure. Working in-house wasn’t so different from agency life, except my client’s office was just down the hall.
I came in contact with the founder of Respect Network in an unusual way; but soon found myself working in a group of people with whom I was completely in sync. They needed a creative with start-up experience, who could design a website, presentation pitches, info sheets and application UI. They were acquired by Evernym about a year after I joined, and I continue to freelance for them on occasion.
CAMP SHADOW PINES
A delight to work with, the team at Camp Shadow Pines needed a complete website refresh to go along with the new logo I had designed for them. They also had recently taken a lot of new photos of their beautiful location which they wanted to incorporate into a hero graphic and galleries throughout. I designed the site and set it up in WordPress so they could make edits as they wished.
