Visit New England.com is a travel and tourism website that I have been proud to be a part of since it's inception in 1996. With up to 4 million unique visitors per year, revenue is produced by selling listings, links and advertising to businesses seeking tourism dollars.
The six iterations of wire frames will show and give you a good feeling for the process that takes place in flushing out the scope of a projects functionality and UI. Each version is presented to the client with revisions being made once feedback is gathered.
This Lexus dealer homepage was the result of the wireframe exercise above. Even though Lexus decided to shelve the project it still shows my process of getting from the white board/wire frame to pixel perfect mock ups.
MINI were looking to maximize visual impact of their product in the eyes of the consumer for all of the over 100 dealers across America. Working with large high quality imagery I produced an experience that puts the consumer virtually in the drivers seat of the 50 year old brand that helps it to continue to inspire awe with it's legion of loyal fans.
In response to lagging leads from our current vehicle search results page we hit the drawing board. The solution above is to funnel the user to a vehicle details page (see next item below) where the ability to secure the lead along with virtually getting the consumer into the vehicle of their dreams is realized.
The MINI vehicle details page showcases the vehicle with large photography and detail rich content. The consumer is immersed in the vehicle and is enticed to deliver that coveted lead to the dealer to begin the purchasing process.
The KIA Service & Parts page is a portal which funnels the consumer to services from two of the dealers leading revenue streams. Money saving coupons further entice the consumer to engage the dealer and continue the relationship between owner and dealership.
Holden Australia's mobile web site helps consumers on-the-go with a quick and easy way to find the nearest dealership, search that dealerships inventory and establish contact.
Here I present a collection of pie-in-the-ski high-level concept pieces which help you see my overall design sense. This is the "how things could look if you let a designer loose to have some fun" section. Enjoy! I did!
New England Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions is a portal site which serves a duel purpose of introducing consumers to amusements and attractions in the New England area. The site also helps service providers get in contact with the management of those properties to introduce themselves and their products. Quite a unique combination for a web property.
As I always say "The morbid the merrier!" All kidding aside, my good friend Mary Lhowe, affectionately know as "Lady Die" by me from this point forward, has taken her career in journalism to new heights. With the new outlet in the field of creative obituary writing Mary asked me to build her web presence up from scratch. By adding lightness and lots of negative space to a rather touchy subject the user can get a real learning experience leading to the relief in the fact that they should take control over their lifes autobiography.
In addition to creating astethically pleasing visual experiences for the user, I consider myself an advocate always striving to ensure a consistent and quality experience for that user. Failing early and often. Iterating and then iterating some more.
When I am not pursuing all things visualy creative you can find me first-and-foremost with my family, out in the woods blasting single-track trails with my weapon of choice - the Funk La Ruta, hiking Pikes Peak summer 2014 for the 14th time, or, during the season watching the NHL and bleeding Black & Gold for the Boston Bruins!
