Type Network

Selected work (not all final) for Type Network, a font marketing and e-commerce platform. I worked on extending the responsive design system that Type Network had developed for the e-commerce section of the platform. The work included UX discussions and sketches, layouts, typography and icon design, and responsive HTML prototypes and templates. The navigation in particular went through many iterations. Final site at Type Network.

Brown Paper Tickets

Selected in-progress work for Brown Paper Tickets, an online ticketing site. The project goal was to develop a style guide for a responsive site redesign. I worked from supplied UX documents to develop design comps, and then transitioned to refining the system via prototypes in the browser. These comps show some of the early explorations for event pages. The challenge was in creating a system that had the flexibility to accommodate many different forms of user-supplied content. The fourth image is an HTML prototype of the design system.

Been was an unusual project: a plugin that allowed users to log and share their web browsing history. The plugin took the form of an overlay that appeared above web pages in the browser. I worked on UX for both the plugin and the web portal, as well as identity, design, layout, and illustration for same. The Been logo was branched out into several categories that could be used to help sort history data.

A 2010-11 project for Roubini Global Economics. Economonitor aggregated financial bloggers into one network, including related works, tweets, and Facebook activity. My concept for the design was to adopt the warm tone of a financial broadsheet into a dense design to convey a sense of dense, dynamic, informative information ecology.
