Snow Tracker

User Experience, Interactive

With this Flash-based UX Concept / Design / Prototyping solo project, I wanted to show off my Photoshop skills by generating all of the application’s visual assets and precomposing each screen’s motion elements before animating the walkthrough in Flash. The finished demo can be viewed on my site… “Snow Tracker is the only mobile app a skier or snowboarder needs. Locate the freshest powder, track your performance and mountain stats, find your buddies, and read feeds… all in real time!”

At the Mountains of Madness

Book Redesign

Redesigning a classic book in it’s entirety proved to be a highly rewarding project. Some of my design choices yielded technical challenges, such as using fully justified text panels. After many days of sorting out the typography minutiae, the new formatting proved beautiful. I also created a unique icon for the chapter heads based on my reading of the story. I dedicated this very limited edition to filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, who personally requested a copy of the book, as he’s committed to making a movie version strictly based on this great H.P. Lovecraft writing.
