adobe lightroom

feature visuals

With an upcoming realease Lightroom, I was tasked with designing a catalog of feature visuals. Getting to know the product is always a rewarding experience, especially with such an incredible tool. Appraoching the drawing board, with the intention of showcasing photography alongside a gentle reference of UI. The idea was to represent each feature, with as little added as possibile, maintaing simplicity while still communicating capability.

Microsoft/Swirl

interactive mobile ads

The objective here was to create an interactive mobile ad concept for the upcoming holiday season. Utilizing Microsoft's accent-color pallete and geometric logo, I developed a 4/4 grid memory game, that would resolve to an offer once a user matched two like squares. The concept was later refined down to a 3/3 grid. A simple approach to mobile engagment.

event flyers

A food and beverage program a step above the rest. With multiple large scale events hosted each year they needed engageing, and uber-customized visual collateral. Each event a new challenge, a new theme and a fresh look. The establised flyer template was thrown out the window, and here are a few things that we came up with. Cheers!

Adobe Voice

HTML email design

The brief requesed a series of html email template designs that could be leveraged along multple touch points. My approach was to put forth a clean, stripped down, light weight HTML/CSS friendly, content focused experience. In some instances leveraging the app's UI in others an abstract representation, in all cases staying true to the essence of the products approachable nature.

Branding

Two former food and beverage pros came to me with the idea of a brazilian beach acai-bowl cafe concept. My logo concepts were rustic, homegrown, yet chic and organized. I also deliverad a branding package, including a stripped down style guide. This kind of work is often a refreshing reprieve from the day to day, plus I always look forward to helping a new business get off the ground.

Adobe Creative Cloud

Visual design

The goal was to introduce a partnernship benefit to the Adobe Creative Cloud experience. Aside from the users visual experience on the main site, an additional CC desktop app component was considered. Part of the sturggle was to determine if we would rely on partner's creative resourses to represent themselves, or provide internal creative. After exploring multiple design approaches the solution was to create a standarized grid of logos to represent each product offer, briefly speaking.
