When asked to redesign the navigation for Scripps' online newspaper presence, I produced the following designs, which will be used moving forward with this project. I added a more robust sub-navigation area, reworked the main nav bar and inserted a new "Weekly Ad" space. I also added a featured photo/video bar further down in the "blacktop" area as part of another design project, and inserted an email capture field in the featured "deals" area. The current version of this page can be found at courierpress.com.
As part of a project integrating gameification strategies with one of Scripps' newspaper properties' websites, I designed an animated notification bar that attaches itself to the bottom of a user's browser window and displays point totals, suggestions for ways to earn points and alerts of additional points or badges earned.
A redesign of Redding.com's "Your Account" page was in order with the addition of gameification to the site as a whole. Below were my design concepts for adding the "game" feel to this page, as well as incorporating the new related elements in a right-side navigation.
Commissioned to find a place on the Scripps' newspaper websites for a new "Weekly Ad" slot for major retailers, I crafted a floating 189x32px block between the search field and navigation bar, as well as incorporating the ad into the right end of the navigation bar, a la The Chicago Tribune.
To improve comments on Scripps' newspaper property websites, we were asked to add the technology and design required to mark a user's comment as "insightful." This was my design mockup to accomplish this in the comments area.
I was asked to redesign the movie listings page on knoxville.com and created a new top-tier bucket that filters movies by title, theater and rating (G, PG, etc.) rather than the drop-downs of all theaters and current titles that exists today.
I was asked to design a new search results page for knoxville.com and so went with a Google-inspired filtering list on the left side of the page, as well as a newly arranged set of results for images and videos, which is not supported in the current search results page.
I was asked to create a "Monster Match" element for Scripps' Monster-based jobs pages across its newspaper properties. Below are two iterations I came up with.
I created a set of iPhone/iPad/iTunes icons for 13 Scripps newspapers' e-edition apps available in the iTunes Store. The sample below is for the Indian River Press Journal.
From 2008 to 2010, I was the main designer and coder behind all of Ducks Unlimited's email marketing efforts. Below are some examples from my last year on staff with DU.
From 2008 to 2010, I was also the main designer and coder behind all of Ducks Unlimited's email newsletters. Below are some examples of DU's monthly e-newsletter.
Additional work is available on the DU website. Right-click and select "View Source" on any of these pages to see the HTML and CSS behind the emails. Please note that all CSS is in-line due to the nature of email providers and their inconsistency in handling separate stylesheets and embeds.
When the DU Web Services team undertook the task of redesigning DU's website in 2010, several new ad slots were introduced to increase online revenue. Below are three examples of 300x100px house ads I designed in Photoshop to fill these spaces until sponsor ads could be sold. These three remain in circulation on the site today.
