Eliyan is a brand I was involved with from its inception. In early 2022 I was asked by Muddy Gecko to design a logo, color scheme, business cards and presentation template. At this time, I also designed a simple landing page for their website. Eliyan contacted me again in 2023 to design a complete website, updated presentation deck and polished diagrams detailing their offering. What a great opportunity to work with this client again - to improve and expand their brand. As always, the developer from Muddy Gecko executed my designs perfectly, paired with a beautiful 3D animation by another member of the Muddy Gecko team, in the final website release.
Volumez was another company I was contracted to work with through Muddy Gecko. While Volumez was a start up, their leadership came from long experience in large tech companies. Their valuable insight and expectation introduced a big creative challenge for me, which I truly enjoyed. This website had more depth than many I'd worked on before, lots of subtle details, animations and transitions built into every page. I worked closely with the Muddy Gecko developer particularly on the Technology section where each each section contained 'out of template' elements. We created a new widget to accomplish an interactive design in WordPress which was exactly what the client desired.
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. Click here for a detailed case study.
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.
DeepSight contacted Muddy Gecko again in 2023 to ask me to make some design updates to their site. I updated the home page with iconography, polished visuals in the application section, added a section in AI, and built out their company section as they were getting ready to hire a great deal more staff with increased funding they received.
I created this graphic to provide a visual representation of how the CellarEye camera works with the tablet app to manage large wine cellars. We also incorporated the main concerns of the customer as to why they'd benefit from the CellarEye system. Below is a closeup of the animation I designed and and produced for the 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.
