The following is a small sample of projects I've designed or otherwise had a direct hand in creating. It is by no means comprehensive, but hopefully gives you an insight into the various types of projects I've been given and some of the design problems I've solved for. If you like something, feel free to say so.

LegalZoom Responsive Homepage

As one facet of a full overhaul of its online presence, I took the lead in designing a homepage that would reintroduce LegalZoom as a provider of legal solutions and no longer simply documents. The page had to feel warm, helpful and engaging while allowing for easy discovery of LegalZoom's wide breadth of legal services for small businesses and families.

Functionally, the page had to be responsive, integrating a new responsive navigation and new modules unique to the homepage experience. All-in-all it was a monstrously collaborative process that successfully brought LegalZoom front door to the modern web.



LegalZoom My Account

As part of an initiative to better communicate order status to customers, LegalZoom wanted to reimagine and reinvent the account area for logged-in customers. Diving deep into the complicated process for business formation and the technical backend processes for order handling, we developed a streamlined order status progress bar and product modules that would allow customers to get immediate updates on expected delivery date as well as communicate any need for customer input. The overall result was a more engaged customer and sharply reduced call volume for simple order status questions.




LegalZoom Facebook Charity Promotion

As part of National Make-a-Will Month LegalZoom was donating a portion of proceeds from all wills to four charities. This Facebook poll allowed its fans of LegalZoom to choose how it would distribute the funds. I designed the Facebook page and integrated the poll along with links to the individual charities.

LegalZoom Explainer Animation

When several rounds of script edits still didn't capture the vision and process of LegalZoom's expanded attorney services, I wrote a version that best explained the simple, straightforward approach LegalZoom takes to legal services. This one earned me a nice dinner for certain, but it was the result of working collaboratively with a great team during crunch time that was most rewarding.

CROWN CUSTOM IMPORTS Website

http://www.crowncustom.com

Crown Custom Imports is the premier supplier of Spekva custom wooden countertops. They needed a websie that positioned their brand as ultra-premium and professional. The site includes interactive images, a Flash-based gallery and product information. We also created a dealer-only login area where they can download products specifications, order forms and literature.

WOMEN IN FILM Flash Video Player

WOMEN IN FILM Flash Video Player

Women In Film wanted a place to showcase it's current library of video content highlighting it's programs, grant winners and member's contributions. The logical solution was a dynamic Flash-based pop-up player window. I designed the interface and navigation scheme and managed the project through completion.
