With the amazing folks at Upperquad I am having the opportunity to design various projects for Google, one of our main clients. Many Google projects ask for the creation of icons or illustrations. Here is a collection for those.

Iconography for Google Chrome.

A small set of feature icons designed for Google Developers.

Illustrations for Google Drive (We designed the Drive logo and the first iteration of the marketing site at Upperquad).

A set of characters created for promotional stickers for Google Mobile.

Illustrations for Google Enterprise Search (Google Search solutions for companies).

Google reached out to us with a little project that needed a crazy turnaround. Luckily, it was a fun one, a microsite where they would post a puzzle (!) connected to "The Imitation Game." The movie, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch, tells the amazing life story of Alan Turing, who was not just a genius but a pioneer of computer sciences (hence Google's interest). It is also about puzzles and cracking secret codes.

We would design the microsite, but also the puzzle itself, so folks could print it at home and try to decipher it and get prizes. Web + game design. Yes! The site is super straightforward. (But I would give it a star sticker for being the first one ever from me that Google approved with a dark background!)

The puzzle/game itself (written by a Google Engineer) was super fun to design too.

Maps for Business is the home of the enterprise level solutions Google offers for Google Maps and Earth. I was the lead designer on this project, working at Upperquad in collaboration with the Google Enterprise and Maps teams. Big props to the dev team at Upperquad that brought the code to life, and a million thanks to all Google folks that worked with us on this one.

Can you base a whole check list mobile app around a chicken, just because the word checking sounds like the word chicken? Well, why not?

That's it for this one.
Thank you for viewing.

VigLink helps people monetize their website by adding links to their content. When a visitor follows a link and that leads to a purchase, the website owner gets a cut. The VigLink symbol/icon and the site's code were done in house. I designed the website and supporting graphics.
