Politico Redesign

While the design for the new face of Politico's website was ultimately handled by one of my talented teammates, I was tasked with crafting and managing all front-end development efforts across the Politico ecosystem. Using a custom-built Sass framework, I developed the front-ends of Politico, Politico Pro, Politico Magazine and Politico Europe using a single SCSS codebase.

Politico Election Central

For the 2014 election, we completely revised our past, fragmented approach to presenting election-related content, and created an all-encompassing, responsive microsite to house all of our data-driven coverage. My involvement in this project included both the design and front-end development of the primary election results, general election results and race ratings.

When it was decided that Politico would be redesigning their website from the ground up, my team and I jumped at the chance to start crafting some new and unique designs. After some initial wireframing, I designed and presented the following concepts. While these concepts ultimately didn't proceed to the development phase, I think they are still worth sharing.

Baby Marcialis

In anticipation of the birth of our first child, Holden, I crafted a small announcement and countdown website. I was happy to use the opportunity to test out some responsive design and development techniques. I also rarely get the chance to illustrate anymore, so dusting off the old sketch book to create the stork mascot was a treat.

Fly Like an Eagle 5k

A local parent teacher association asked for me to design and develop a logo and website to announce their annual 5k run fundraiser. For three consecutive years, the website has allowed users to register, get race information, and become a sponsor.

Jump-n-Jimmy's

A local bounce house amusement center was in dire need of a total website redesign. In doing so, they wanted the ability to update and manage their content themselves. After completing the design and front-end development, I integrated the templates into the CMS Made Simple content management system. I also had the opportunity to illustrate a bit by designing their new mascot, Lil' Jimmy, who now adorns the walls of the growing business.
