The website, while up and relevant all year, mainly supports a single annual event in San Francisco and the elements on the page needed to convey a sense of the event both in terms of energy and timeliness.
But more importantly, this was a turning point in the design-to-developer handoff and I'm proud of the hard-fought win for the workflows. During the design of the project, a new tool called Macaw was released and I was eager to use it in order to speed up how designs were passed from me/designers to developers. While Macaw didn't make it, the path was paved and when more sophisticated tools like Webflow emerged, the groundwork was laid and we had a whole new, more efficient, and creatively liberating platform in our workflow.
I created a new, fresh color palette for Litquake and really pushed it forward, using colors boldly and playing with strong typography choices and a magazine-inspired layout.
Moving Postcards started as a gift of an old family car and ended as a short film project that we successfully funded via Kickstarter.
This was easily the most harrowing project I've ever worked on. Front Line Defenders, FLD, was looking to redesign their website. After reading over the conten, I wanted to put the spotlight on the brave human right defenders, tell their story, and make the impact of their work known.
