Google is not a conventional company and has always been synonymous with tech. Google has recently tried to change long standing perceptions of utilitarian design to more of a visual and communicative design. Starting with a newly designed logo in 2015, Google has focused on modernizing their core products. As part of Google's Search team, this 'modernization' effort manifested as a cross functional collaboration between project teams. We are building new design systems and patterns for teams to use that will ultimately support users' needs and engagement.

The Weather Channel asked Fantasy to bring back their Boat & Beach marine forecast section as part of their continued redesign for their platform. The goal was to design a Boat & Beach product for responsive web then translate it to their mobile apps. The data we pulled from surveying close to 300 users, provides users with the information they need for recreational yet business purposes, staying informed and prepared to plan their day.
We added an extra level of interactivity with changing backgrounds in the hero area that correlate with the time of day. The hero also ties in with the sun module under Sun & Moon. On mobile devices, users can report current conditions or confirm data in the hero area. The tide chart was designed for users to interact and scrub through the graph with weather data updating in present time.
The Starbucks name needs no introduction and many people use their app on a daily basis. Starbucks wants to tap into the food delivery service to compete with companies such as UberEats, Yelp’s EAT24 and Postmates.
We decided to integrate the food delivery service within the existing app, making it easier for users to browse menus and food options in a familiar format. We took inspiration from Starbucks’ fun in-store product designs to create a contemporary look and feel for a new and exciting product.

The redesign of MGMGrand.com was a beast. Not only was it 100+ pages of content and a complex booking engine, but it was the first installment of what would eventually become a redesign of every hotel website in MGM Resorts International’s portfolio.
On the less glamorous side, we also redesigned the entire booking experience to make it easier for guests to book hotel rooms, buy show tickets and even pick their seats from their phone (not even Ticketmaster is doing that).

This initial concept for MGM Grand, Las Vegas' new site focused on navigation by desire that drove the user to pick an item he or she wanted to do while staying at MGM Grand. In this case, the user chooses "drink" and sees a list (defaulted view) of restaurant / bar / lounges. They can also choose their filters on the right panel of the screen.
If the user clicks on the panel icon, the screen shifts and reveals signature drinks that are scrollable from left to right. The current drink also shows a small description of the venue and if the venue is currently open or not.
New Matter is poised to revolutionize the consumer 3D printing market by providing the first and only affordable, fully integrated consumer 3D printing experience. Given the specs for their trade booth, a minimalistic design approach was used to create the graphics to showcase New Matter's first booth at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. Elements were used from the logo along with large panels of black surface for their wall and clean, white table space to highlight their 3D printers. Using New Matter's simplistic and seamless approach to printing, the design of their booth stood out amongst other vendors, helping them win a CES Innovation award that year.
