Please excuse the inconvenience here, but you'll have to make your screen wider to see my work. I started my progress on this portfolio ago and will be updating daily until necessary. This is a testimate to releasing early and often. Mobile friendly is coming next.

Habu
I led the product ideation, research, and creative effort of Habu at Gravity Mobile / Gracenote back in 2010. The goal of Habu from a product perspective was to solve the problem of having 20 million songs at your fingertips, but nothing to play — When you have that many options choice paralysis becomes a real problem. Our solution was to reduce the amount of input users had to make to start a listening experience. Once playback began, users could refine their experience over time to get a truly personalized radio to fit any mood. The goal from the design perspective, however, was to introduce a product that utilized a framework I have been calling “Introspective User Interfaces”. These are UIs that aim to build extremely functional interfaces that also tell the user a bit about themselves and the world around them. The larger aim is to get people thinking more about the world around them and how they fit in it. Case Study coming soon.
Instacart
I created the brand identity for Instacart back in 2012. Max Mullen and I met in 2011 when we rode down to SXSW with Startup Bus. I was completely enamored by his unflappable personality and sharp wit, so when he told me that he’d be joining Apoorva Mehta on a project around ‘Bringing a grocery store to your phone’, I immediately asked how I could contribute. At the time, Instacart was just in Beta and the head quarters was in Max’s living room. Instacart had no logo or personality and I remember Max suggesting that he wanted the brand to feel like ‘Your Neighborhood Milk Man.’ That quote was really the inspiration for the hand shaped lettering and illustration style I brought in to their identity when they first launched. Since their launch, I’ve continued to help them grow by building their marketing assets for physical and digital ad campaigns in San Francisco and their expansion efforts in Chicago.
