Sony Bravia 2010 Showcase

Odopod worked directly with the creative team at Sony to create an immersive, interactive experience that showcased the new Bravia television and the philosophy that informed its revolutionary design. The site is divided into "stories"– Design, Connectivity and Picture. Each story had chapters which had their own mode of interactivity.

I was involved with developing the site concepts and as a senior designer I designed the room environment, interface elements behaviors, title plates and window backgrounds.

Don Q LadyData

Don Q is the number one rum in Puerto Rico, the land of rum. But it's not yet well-known in the US. The strategic brains at Undercurrent came to Odopod with a plan to help the brand change that, by giving its audience of young men something they're in dire need of: female perspective. We developed this plan into a platform: LadyData. It's powered by the opinions of a team of female insiders, lending their intuition to crucial man-topics like style, careers, manners and, of course, sex and dating. The site is an unexpected blend of data, entertainment and utility. It's built to grow, with new opinions and ladies being added all the time. Most importantly, it's relevant and engaging - a refreshing standout in a stale category.

I was involved from the beginning concept phase into the design phase. During the design phase I led a team which created user interface and visual design studies. Once a design direction was chosen I was solely responsible for creating page designs for both the LadyData microsite and the rum product site. I also helped by formatting the css for flash-disabled platforms. Visit »

Nestea Liquid Awesomeness

Venables Bell came to Odopod to create an online home for "Steve," the spokesman for Nestea who had transformed his house into a 24/7 arena for the public to challenge and test his skills of awesomeness.

We were tasked to come up with the challenges, shoot and edit all of the video, create a look & feel that was an extension of the campaign's overall branding and determine how the site worked and behaved. My specific role as senior designer was to design the overall site framework, interface elements and menus. I also created challenge icons and some of the animated flash elements.

NVIDIA Speak Visual

Cutwater came to Odopod for the launch of their new campaign for Nvidia, Speak Visual, a celebration of all the dazzling eye-candy Nvidia technologies make possible. We shot video portraits profiling a diverse group of influential visual creators and created a gallery where others could have their work showcased. The entire experience was a 3D environment with a unique sense of spatial integrity. It was created using a mix of Flash, Papervision and Five3D technologies.

As senior designer I was responsible for making page designs that were then passed onto the flash development team. I also edited all of the artist videos and audio in the "spotlight" section.

Giant For Women

Odopod worked with Giant For Women (an initiative of Giant Bicycles for women cyclists) for over four years. We launched their initial site in early 2006 and did a design refresh in 2008. Visit »

I was involved with the 2008 refresh which required a redesign without altering how the pages were constructed in css. Since then I have been the lead designer for annual updates and special pages such as the one we did for pro racer Kelli Emmett. Visit »

Better Place 10 Words Minifestos

Better Place is a company that creates electric car infrastructures for communities and nations. They asked Odopod to create ways to energize the public around the electric car movement while secondarily introducing their name/brand to the world. Our concept, the 10 Word Minifesto, provides a way for individuals to express themselves simply and beautifully. Each person was asked to give us his/her ten words and we created a system that would animate them in thoughtful and compelling ways. The visual language was an extension of their branding system. As design lead on the project I was responsible for developing the visual language, site design, storyboards and Flash animations.

IDEO Eyes Open

Odopod collaborated with IDEO to create a site that would compliment a series of books that redefined the relationship of person to place typically found in most travel publications. Our team was very small and we worked very closely with one another from concept to launch. The idea for the site was to curate "experience stories" from invited guests and to give thematic assignments which allowed everyone the opportunity to share their own stories.

I led the visual design effort which involved not only taking the visual language from the books and extending it to the web, but concurrently create a sensible and compelling IA structure to hold all of the content. At the end of the IA/discovery phase I created a document that outlined our findings.

Microsoft Zune asked Odopod to strategize how their site could enable music lovers to discover and share music. After an initial strategy/discovery period the designers were asked to apply visual languages to wireframes. As a senior designer I was responsible for creating one of the directions.
