Had the honor and opportunity to make a bunch of swag for another of MetaLab’s annual summits. Working on so much digital stuff every year always makes me appreciate the high of creating physical products.
Tote bags: While our slogan takes center stage, we also wanted to lend the look a “Pacific Northwest vibe“ without specifically referencing any one locale.
Key tags, shirts, socks & stickers: We wanted to closely link these visual motifs together with a whole outdoor camp-y feel.
Had the pleasure to spin up a brand new careers page for MetaLab in early 2019. Along with the entire visual design of the page, I got to create a batch of icons for all our different kinds of benefits and job listings.
Skills: iconography, UI design, motion prototyping
Got to work with the fine folks at SymfonyCasts (and Grand Rapids locals to boot!) making some swag for their 2019 conference. Development tutorials can be kind of a dry subject, so we wanted to keep things light, fresh and a little silly. Friendly dinos & aliens have made appearances in their past collateral, so we freshened them up and added some new pals.
Skills: illustration, branding
Part of a suite of icons for Finery (now part of Stitch Fix). The goal was to deliver a crisp, clear, and professional set to compliment the plentiful fashion imagery.
Finery uses machine learning to get to know a woman’s personal style and offers daily outfit inspiration based on her look. Bridging the gap between online and real life, Finery looks for every opportunity to serve up useful information to ensure women are stylish and prepared.
“In this role-playing vision of the future from ONUS, not all is as it seems. You are confronted with someone whose face, life, and even memories mirror your own. Are you quite sure you’re really you, or just a SIMULACRUM?”
In addition to designing the cartridge and thinking up a fun, fake game experience, I also invented a game company to produce my ersatz experience.
“ONUS, makers of such fine video entertainment products as Eldritch Flavour, Dream Garden Duo, and SIMULACRUM.”
I had the pleasure of working with WEconnect Recovery to help refresh and revamp their mobile product. Part of that was a fresh icons, emoji, and illustrations—communicating both strength and friendliness.
“The WEconnect app helps you schedule routines to stay on track for recovery. The app provides gentle reminders, rewards for completion of recovery activities, and GPS verification for routine locations, all to make recovery accountable.”
Hot on the heels of moving to Grand Rapids, MI, I was able to jump in and help out the local CreativeMornings chapter with a print & sticker giveaway. They’d had to take a hiatus from events and wanted to return in style for all the attendees. This month’s theme was Symmetry.

Selected states and product offerings for EagleView, an app that allows contractors and homeowners to scan their roofs.
Work done: empty/success states, spot illustrations, icons
In 2013 MetaLab worked with the Slack team to launch something engaging and beautiful leading to a funding round of $43 million. By 2017, the design and features Slack was known for propelled it to become the fastest growing business application ever at a current valuation of over $5 billion.
Visual collateral for a small group I'm a part of founded on the principles of camaraderie, helpful & honest feedback, and ridiculous GIFs.
Originally created as part of the A Gallery Far, Far Away show at Creative South 2016, this screen print looks great in any smuggler's ship or backwater cantina.

I had the pleasure to participate in Titus Smith & Seth Gale’s Permanent Records project. Every day in August 2016, an artist got to choose a song to reinterpret into a tattoo.
I was honored to get to assemble this interactive ballpark for an ESPN.com feature that lets you construct your very own dream team for the MLB playoffs! Check it out and be sure to scroll around the field when you’re done.
The inspiration behind it was thinking about what being a “genius” means to me. I boiled it down to someone who makes clever, unexpected connections by taking in and dissembling information.

No GhostCrime™ investigator worth her salt would be caught (un)dead without these trusty items—though maybe invest in the name-brand sample baggies next time.
Got the awesome opportunity recently to work up some simple, animated marketing illos for the fine folks at Willing.
