And everything in its place.

A client that chose a poetic name under which to sell candles deserved a smart logo.

Waxpoetic Logo

She sells candles, under the name WaxPoetic. 
I got a request from somebody that I consider family, who also happens to be a colleague in programming and business: Make a logo for a company that hauls water around Arizona. Their name? Dynamite Water. This was the final winner, and I'm pretty happy with it. Less is more!

Dynamite Water Identity

I did a whole lot more than this with Lilly Looking Through. Please check out the video, here.

Geeta Games: Lilly Looking Through

LILLY LOOKING THROUGH
Supplemental Programming/Particle Effects/Level Assembly
This is a screenshot of the level loading screen, and while I did design this, most of my work on Lilly Looking Through consisted of less static elements, such as creating and implementing particle effects, programming many of the puzzles, and assembling levels from individual pieces. Some of my handiwork can be seen at the end of the following video… (at the 3:25 mark.)
HAWORTH Design/Programming (Partnered with Brandon Gohsman) This is the level of design that I enjoy creating the most: clean and light.

HAWORTH Design/Programming (Partnered with Brandon Gohsman) This is the type of project that would show up at my doorstep often as a freelancer: A set of design parameters, some sketches, and my job was to take it to the next level.

HAWORTH Design/Programming (Partnered with Brandon Gohsman) Reagan Marketing + Design wanted their client to be able to hand out a CD at a furniture show without it containing just a bunch of folders; we built an interface to go with it.

OUT OF THEIR MINDS DESIGN Design/Programming My old site's design checks the time of day and gives an appropriate theme, be it night, day, or dawn/dusk. The clouds along the bottom are interactive, producing small puffs on rollover.

My old site checked the time of day and gave an appropriate theme to match, be it night, day, or dawn/dusk. All of the clouds slowly blow from left to right, and those along the bottom are interactive, producing small puffs on rollover. The main viewing window arose from the clouds on the first click.

EDGE ENTERPRISES
Design/Programming/Illustration/Writing

For over 11 years, I worked on Flash-based interactive presentations for challenged junior high and high school students to aid in their writing. My projects were, at first, simply designing navigational elements/ UX, but over time I became more involved. I designed and implemented a program that would populate the screen with UI elements, move forward based on soundclips imported into the projector, looking for the next soundclip before moving on to the next “row” of subject matter. On the last row, it went to the next lesson. I also built a quizzing system that handled multiple-choice, identifying individual words and labeling them as subject/verb/etc. I wrote a story to go with the latest presentations, to get the students more interested; a malfunctioning onboard AI requires strict adherence to proper English before a written distress call will be sent. We needed some pictures to go along with our story about a stranded space cargo-ship pilot. This image is from a pivotal moment in the plot, wherein your ship is damaged.

 

SLIGH FURNITURE Design/Programming (partnered with Brandon Gohsman) Sligh was a freelance client of mine for nearly a decade before ownership changed hands. Rob Sligh was always looking for a new technological leap forward on his company’s site.

SLIGH FURNITURE Design/Programming (partnered with Brandon Gohsman) We added bold, customer-friendly ways to refine search results for the wide array of furniture available. I made a number of animated product feature segments, which can be viewed here.

They turned a bright blue when touched, and made a tone like a wind-chime.
