Here are a few of my favorite projects. You can see more of my work in my online portfolio, located at gawow.com/folio.
R.Stuart & Co. Site Design - www.rstuartandco.com
Tasked to capture and establish the mood and spirit of this fledgling winery, I worked closely and tirelessly with the principles to nail down a look and feel and get all the little details right. I used my illustration skills to give them a site that was unique and airy with a whimsical, handmade look.
Overhauled the look and feel of their site. Created a new information structure so that they could more-easily expand the site. Worked closely with a copywriter to develop new content style and tone. Created a logo for use on their main product, a web and phone accessible staffing application.
Logitech Banner Advertising - gawow.com/folio/flashanim
Created an ad banner campaign to promote the launch of one of their redesigned web cams. Using Flash, I created several character animations and scenarios. One of the biggest challenges was to create rich animation within a limited file size.
HBI Community Site Redesign - gawow.com/folio
This community site was bursting at the seams with content and a design that needed an update. I created a whole new look and feel and an interface that better organized the huge number of categories and materials.
Graphics: Photoshop (concept to code and everything in between); Illustrator; Flash 5.0; Fireworks; Image Ready; Quark.
Web: HTML (hand-coded) ; CSS; Homesite; Dreamweaver; considerable cross-browser experience.
Platforms: Windows; Macintosh; NT; a little Unix.
Other: Information Architecture design; Project Management; Copywriting and editing; color and b/w photography.

I know a few people who willingly say nice things about me... upon request, of course.
