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.
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.
A mobile industry leader gets a brand new, fully responsive website. At Upperquad I have designed the original version of SessionM's corporate website, created identity guidelines for their branding efforts, and also designed promotional websites for their product, the mPoints rewards program.
Rate A Wine! is an app for the iPhone to help you remember the wines you like.
Designed and developed to quickly journal wines you try, rate them, add tasting notes, share the rating and get back to having a good time. I've created the brand identity, illustrations for tasting notes, promotional materials, website and the design of the mobile app itself. Get it on the app store!
The HALO Trust has partnered with Google to build an interactive map tracking the stories and progress of their mine clearance efforts in the small town of Krivenik, east Kosovo. Powered by Google Maps Engine, the map shows HALO’s work in the field and its impact on communities and the people they serve.
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.
