I’ve recently worked for MSN.com developing specialized site packages and themes for clients such as Budweiser, General Electric, and Pedigree. As part of the MSN design team, I was constantly helping develop the branding, and outward look and feel of Microsoft’s web presence – whether it’s through maintaining the company’s artistic direction or exploring new avenues for growth.

As a UI designer, I was tasked with providing user interface and experience concepts for Microsoft Office’s web applications, such as Word and Excel. Animations and presentation decks were required to demonstrate form and functionality to stakeholders which led to providing redline specifications for developers to create prototypes.
In addition, I aided in designing concepts for Microsoft Office 15 features, while providing redlines to developers for release.

SolutionsIQ’s short-lived endeavor into gaming was called Radiant Machine. I designed game characters and environments and created textures for use on 3d character models and environments. I also provided UI design concepts for Wizards of the Coast’s social network, Gleemax.

In charge of branding and production for MediaPacifica’s Get There! Guides book series, I provided layout, advertisement, and marketing design, as well as photography. The topics for the guides ranged from dining, antiques, to home improvement.
