I served as the designer responsible for developing a new player for publishers (Please see above examples). I worked closely with product, design and engineering teams to develop a player that features a customizable color scheme and related content, but still showcases subtle YouTube branding. My contributions includes the visual design/direction, design iterations and pixel-perfect redline specs.
Recently, users were faced with blank screens when their YouTube channel failed to load. I was given the design task to help develop an engaging illustration for this particular instance. Through a series of sketches and referencing Google’s Material Design, I designed this image that was thought provoking and made this experience a little more enjoyable for the user.
In a few cases, users would come across a YouTube channel that was closed. There was no notification and no opportunity to unsubscribe from a channel that no longer existed. Collaborating with the lead designer and copywriter, we came up with the message and illustration to reinforce this idea and created a opportunity for the user to unsubscribe from a channel that was closed.
I develop a series of illustrations for YouTube's Help Heroes program. The idea was to depict everyday people in a studio environment. The final illustrations utilized Google's Material design aesthetics.
I began working at Zynga as a 2D Artist on Frontierville’s The Pioneer Trail. I created illustrations and animations for weekly features and bold beats for the fun and engaging game about establishing your homestead in the Old West. I also took interim art director duties and worked with overseas partners to maintain weekly deliverables making sure that the assets were on brand and on time.
A couple of years later, I was fortunate to have an opportunity to work on Farmville 2 as a UI/UX Designer. I was responsible for developing the visual design and UX for it’s weekly features and bold beats. I maintained good UX principles, keeping the visuals to brand and helped onboard new members to the Farmville franchise.
This illustration was inspired by Powell Peralta's iconic skate film "The Search for Animal Chin".
