Play-i was one of the most interesting challenges I have been given. Their product has a tricky goal of teaching 5+ year olds the fundamentals of programming. After 5 months of thinking, and rethinking I came to a interaction model and art direction that tested well and helped them to tell a compelling product story.
When I met Doug he had a fancy little projector, after 3 month of design experiments I got them their 1.0 interaction model. Touch-less interface is a really fun challenge but a worthy one. If the video does not load check out www.Navdy.com
I cant show much of this, but what I can say is that for the time it was created it was actually really ahead of its time.
Dreams are awesome, stop forgetting them.
We designed Dreamcatcher as an alarm clock app that opens speech to text at the moment you wake up to give you the best chance at capturing it. Was designed and developed in 30 days, made it to the top 30 spot, and has held onto its 5 star rating.
This was made in July if 2012. Never made it to the store because of TOS. My good buddy and I made it from concept to completion in 3 months. Still one of my favorite projects.
I did a lot more here than I could ever show on a webpage.
3 buddies and I started Swoop by addressing the issue of high cognitive load vs. reward in mobile shopping. Too many options, too much sorting, and inconsistent check out. We stripped the functionality down to a fast paced content feed, with some nice feed back loops.
Loved the making of ClubWolrd, it was a college education in mobile gaming. I got to touch a lot of this app from art and production to UX and the GDD. It made over 1.5 million in the 1 year it was live. Kids that grew up on this will look back and say "that game had SO many drug references".
All this illustrations where done by Big Menace Industries
6 people. 33days. Went #1 paid #1 free, and #1 grossing.
Thanks to tight time lines and tons of faith of my then boss Jason Festa, I got to be really hands on with this one, plus Lady Gaga's people were surprisingly easy to work with. I forgot how many millions of units this moved but I will get numbers and update.
A game I'm making. Will be done soon, promise :)
2 vs. 1 is my baby. It's a side scrolling fighter that has lots of secret sauce in it. It's my best effort to date because it is an ongoing one, no rushing, just a happy place I go in my free time.
Type treatment for a game, cant say much more, but a it was good time.
Took 2nd Place in the Chartboost / Qualcomm Hackathon. This fun little gem did a bunch of smart sorting of your friends via Thread.in to game users on their knowledge of their social circle.
Angelhack 2012 project. We made a place for people to find and post Free shit around them in real time, and then integrated TaskRabbit so users can get the freeness delivered. Fun shit
Freelance gig, quick and fun.
Fun little office project, these were printed and mounted as 8ft murals in the Disney office.
Post college, pre apps, did a lot of weird deals like this.
I love Nike.
My mom breeds Koi, so she got branding for Christmas.
Super old. Still really fun
Dropped shit loads of these all around the city.
Nir Eyal is one of my favorite people to bounce the ball with. Super bright and has great energy. Made this quick and dirty for his most recent post.
I'm not much of a typographer, but I have fun when I get the chance.
