Designing a new, responsive interface for CPower's industry-leading energy management and demand response web application. Taking product requirements and feature concepts through a complete design process, from initial scoping, to wireframing, prototyping, and front-end development. Helping to implement an iterative design and development loop that incorporates quantitative and qualitative user research.
Baltimore Rex was a smart, quick way to follow the local news in Baltimore. Every day, Baltimore Rex collected the most interesting stories in Baltimore and delivers them via email and social media. I started this company in 2014 to explore emerging problems in presenting local news to a digital audience. Baltimore Rex was featured in Startup Soirée's Baltimore Startup 5.
In 2014, I launched a completely re-built and re-designed website for Baltimore magazine. This site features a fully responsive HTML5 design that works beautifully on any device, and features the same great typography, photography, and style as its print counterpart. On the backend, I migrated Baltimore from an outdated Drupal installation to a new content management system, Craft. This new system gives powerful tools to the magazine's content creators, with breakout article templates and extensibility for future growth.
A single-page, responsive identity site for new, yearly fundraiser for University of Maryland Children's Hospital.
Designed to be fully responsive and search engine optimized, this identity site for Advanced Logistics Consulting quickly led to new leads.
When my wife and I got married earlier this year, we streamlined the RSVP process for our guests with this responsive RSVP site, included on our invitations. We saved paper and got our responses quickly!
Redesigned and rebuilt Baltimore Bride in 2013. I also migrated the site from Drupal to Wordpress. The new, mobile-friendly design and web exclusive editorial content quickly tripled the site's audience.
As Baltimore magazine's Online Director, I also designed and maintained microsites for the magazine's live events, such as the semi-annual Shop Crawl. These microsites consistently boosted event RSVPs and ticket sales. With responsive, mobile-friendly designs, the sites also gave attendees last-minute information about parking, specials, and more.
As NPF's Digital Media Manager between 2010 and 2012, I inherited a not-quite-ready new website and extended its features and design. I redesigned the program sign-up pages to increase our application rates, and rehauled sections of the home page to make it more up-to-date and dynamic than originally designed.
