EXPERIENCE

 

PRESENT

AUSTIN, TX

TrendKite is a disruptor in their industry and is experiencing rapid growth. They recruited me to take the rains of their brand and develop visual and style standards as well as lead the UI/UX of their website and product extensions. At this fast-paced startup, I’ve launched a new logo, developed brand standards, begun a website redesign and have launched several marketing campaigns to drive sales to record levels.


2015-2016

AUSTIN, TX

Favor needed clear, thoughtful creative vision for its rapidly expanding brand so I designed and executed for multiple channels including web, mobile application and print. Launching 12 new markets in my time there, I developed a design system that delivers brand consistency across all markets, nationally and internationally.


2012 – 2016

Austin, TX

Elon and Company was in need of a UI/UX designer to build out their company site. In addition to designing all aspects of their responsive site, I was their creative director and lead designer on all client work, insuring all projects were completed on time and under budget.


2009 – 2015

Austin, TX

Alamo Drafthouse has grown from an Austin staple to a national icon. As Art Director, I built a cohesive, recognizable brand image by creating and implementing standards that are still used today. I developed and approved all things design, from grand opening materials to website design to on-screen content, successfully launching 14 new locations. I also hired, managed and helped grow junior team members.

Everyone wears a lot of hats at Alamo. In my time there I had the opportunity to help develop and brand all of Tim League’s projects, including: 400 Rabbits, Midnight Cowboy, Fantastic Fest, Highball, Badass Digest, BIRTH.MOVIES.DEATH. and Drafthouse Films.

Literacy Coalition of Central Texas was in a serious need of a new website. I designed a site with emphasis on accessibility for those who have difficulty reading.


SEPTEMBER – 2008

Austin, TX

Creative Suitcase needed help with the development of a logo for the University of Texas Women’s Law program. I also helped with the design of a number of websites and other various design projects.
