Complete Website Rebuild.

Complete Website Rebuild.

Kum & Go recently underwent a massive transition and rebranding of their loyalty program. Working with the Figma design system created by their awesome UI/UX team, I completely rebuilt the Kum & Go public website from scratch within a tight deadline of four weeks, saving the company over $600,000 per year.

Digital magazine layout.

Digital magazine layout.

I designed the entire layout of Unredacted Magazine, an interactive magazine, beginning with Issue 002 in June 2022. I built an adaptable, accessible layout in InDesign and created several graphical components and ads in Illustrator. The magazine is digital-only and is delivered as an interactive PDF.

Digital magazine ads.

Fortify 24x7 asked me to design a series of half-page magazine ads to be included in several issues of Unredacted Magazine. After receiving the parameters and copy, I designed the ads in Adobe Illustrator. Since the magazine is an Interactive PDF, the final designs were embedded directly into the InDesign document with multiple targeted hyperlinks. These ads can be seen in various issues of Unredacted Magazine.

Restaurant listing website.

I built Explore Eastern Utah to showcase local restaurants that remained open during pandemic shutdowns. I designed the UI in Adobe XD and built it using WordPress and Bootstrap. Through extensive use of dynamic content and APIs, Business owners were able to create user accounts and update their listings. All logos and graphics were designed in Adobe CC.

Corporate lawfirm website.

In an effort to explore the Webflow platform we designed and built this was a pro bono micro website for a fledgling corporate law firm. We created the UI in Adobe XD and developed it using Webflow, Finsweet Client First, and custom JavaScript components. Webflow's interface and ease of use are intuitive, but it's a bit restrictive for complex styling. All logos and graphics were designed in Adobe CC.

Sheriff campaign website.
 

Sheriff campaign website.

Campaign website for a sheriff election. This website had many pages, a simple CMS for news updates, and simple PayPal API setup to accept donations. I created the UI in Adobe XD and built it using Bootstrap, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and some basic PHP to run the CMS. All logos and graphics were designed in Adobe CC.
