IEH is a small manufacturing company in Brooklyn, now in the the fourth generation of the family that runs it. They specialize in making these incredibly precise hyperboloid-shaped connectors, which are used in high-tech industries such as aerospace and defense. I worked with Ty Fujimura to design and build a new site for them, with special attention paid to making their catalog of available parts easier to browse.
Ridelust is a blog dedicated to cars with a very masculine voice – a strong contender for the most unlikely project I’ve ever been asked to work on. (My Sarah Lawrence education didn’t really come up.) I helped with some of the design work, fleshing out details based on Ty Fujimura’s initial designs and direction. This was a redesign of their Wordpress-based site, so some care had to be taken in the transition to the new design. I built out most of the design and Wordpress integration with help from the talented Alex Berger.
I worked with Ty Fujimura to design and build out this website for a new publication focused on activities related to well-being – primarily nutrition, yoga, and meditation. With Ty’s direction, I fleshed out the design with room for photography to evoke the contents of the site. I then implemented the design and built out the necessary functionality on Expression Engine.
I joined Reason Media Group as they took on building Pom’s new website with the goal of engaging Pom’s community of fans alongside Pom’s design agency, Fire Station. When I joined, the project was already slated to be built on Wordpress and Buddypress; I worked with another developer to build out the new site over three months, taking care of both front-end and back-end development tasks. After the site’s launch, we were asked to further the design, so I took on a more leading role in front-end development and design.
Gabe is a close friend and frequent collaborator, and I have helped him with his web presence for a couple of years now. For this most recent round, I asked him to let me take on the bulk of the design work for his portfolio, so that he could focus on what he was working on at the time. After my initial draft, he worked on a great background and we hammered out details until we arrived at a good starting place to grow the site from. Really, you should stop reading this and go see his stuff.
At Reason Media Group, we started dialogue with the Milken Community High School in Los Angeles about building and designing a site for the school’s student-run newspaper. I got to take the design lead for this early prototype, which showcases some of our thinking about what a modern high school online publication might be like.
