Portfolio

VeilCosmetics.com

I created a complete responsive redesign for the ecommerce website of Veil Cosmetics. My redesign focused on streamlined user experience and increased conversion rates. This site operates on the Shopify platform.

Menshealth

MensHealth.com Redesign

I worked as lead designer on the 2016 redesign of MensHealth.com. Our redesign focused on the Men's Health brand: bold, confident, and strong. This responsive redesign employed bold usage of the brand's color palette, accompanied by strong, angular iconography.

Recipe1

Recipe Finder

I designed this searchable database of recipe content for Rodale's Organic Life. My goal was usability: users can save recipes to their account, view recipes as collections, and edit recipe quantities on the fly. Autosuggest search functionality was given a high priority in the user interface.

Men's Health Guide to Protein

I designed this multimedia minisite for MensHealth.com. Content includes video, infographics, custom navigation UI, image sliders, and recipes. This custom feature brought an editorial package to life in the digital environment.

Next Top Trainer Logo

I designed the brand identity for the web-based reality show Men's Health Next Top Trainer. My logo design uses a custom typographic solution.
