SpotMe

SpotMe is a web and mobile app for keeping track of shared of expenses. I was responsible for both front-end design and development, transforming wireframes into fully functional interfaces. I also did a fair amount of interaction design, working with the product owner to nail down the details of a complex bill-splitting interface, and writing the javascript that powers it. This was a huge project, and I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

SpotMe Mobile

Mobile-optimized version of the SpotMe web app.  Using mobile-only stylesheets, I was able to style the markup from the desktop site for smaller screens without writing new templates.

IODA Release Console

I designed and helped code this complex, multi-step UI which is used by hundreds of music rightsholders to prepare their releases for delivery to online music retailers such as iTunes and Amazon MP3. I mapped out user workflows and goals, and created mockups and functional prototypes, leading internal design review meetings to gather feedback from stakeholders and iterate designs. I was also responsible for refining the user experience on the front-end, writing templates, tweaking interaction, and creating new stylesheets.

IODA Album Pages

These landing pages are dynamically generated for each of the thousands of releases in IODA's music distribution catalog. I designed the layout for these pages with the user's goals in mind.  Key information is easily located, and a short introduction is featured when available.  All of the data on these pages is user-entered, and it was a challenge making sure the page remained balanced regardless of a given page elements dimensions or even presence. SEO was also important for these pages.  Semantic markup does most of the heavy lifting, and some microformat data is included as well.

Dru Donovan

I designed and developed this minimalist photography portfolio site for my very talented friend Dru Donovan.  I worked closely with Dru to figure out exactly what functionality she wanted, then built a custom back end CMS that presents only those few features in the most intuitive way possible.

I recently updated and open-sourced the app behind this site as Porto.

Blitzen Trapper

In the summer of 2010 Blitzen Trapper was about to release their fifth album, and their website was long-overdue for a refresh. With the new site, I started from scratch. Albums, users, songs, shows, and forum topics all became their own models, allowing for a much deeper experience across the site. Users have central accounts that they can use to post in the forum, comment on shows, and even add and edit setlists. I strove for a simple, highly usable design that puts the focus where it should be: on the band and their fans.

Holocene Music

Holocene Music is a small record label based out of Portland, Oregon.  Our site had been stagnating for years, so we decided it was time for a complete refresh.  The site was built from the ground up using Ruby on Rails.  I went for a clean, grid-based design, with subtle, meaningful use of color.  The site also includes a custom-built CMS for managing artists, albums, and new updates.
