Bank Site Refresh

Bank Site Refresh

design

As a member of this bank, I have really been able to experience the horrible design of the website. The mobiel app isn't much better, but lets stick to the website for now. The verbage is confusing and if that isn't a disconnect, they repeat the same fuctions. Some of those can repeat up to 4 or 5 times! So I tought this would be a good project to see what would be possible if we combined the duplicated processes, better grouped services in the navigation, displayed information in a more clean and easy to read way and overall be able to use the site with some enjoyment instead of dread.

Just so you can see some of the issues I am referencing I have also added the original site layout and a mobile version of each. I plan on building this out to dive into live interaction. That is coming soon and will be added here once completed.

Unused Design Lives

Unused Design Lives

development

I wanted to take someone elses unused design and attempt to learn more of the flexibility of the latest Bootsrap 4 system. Working on other peopels designs allows me to dive into the decisions that person made. Keeping this in mind during development allowed me to imagine what it should look like and how it should behave when making it responsive.

I found this unused design on Dribbble by Kylie Timpani and thought that this would be a great resource to dive into this project with. Please click the button below to see it in action.

Apple Calculator Watch

Apple Calc Watch

design

The challenge for this was to design a calculator. It could be standard, scientific, or specialty calculator for something such as mortgage and to be used for a phone, tablet, web app, etc. I decided to bring back my favorite calculator from my childhood. The DBC-61 Calculator Watch from Casio. I didn't just want to design the DBC-61 digitally, but merge it with current watch technology. I thought, what better than using an Apple Watch. So I designed the DBC-61 as an app for the Apple Watch.

I was able to trace back the fonts used for original DBC-61 and use them in this design to bring that authetic nostalgia feel. Not only did I find the original fonts used on the watch but I found the original ad from the 80s and used it as a template.

Greg Klassen Funiture

Greg Klassen Furniture

design

The challenge for this was to design a product landing page. I decided to take things in a different direction and use this opportunity to elevate the exposure of a wonderful furniture maker, Greg Klassen Furniture. I deisgned this landing page with the intent to keep the page layout as a reflection of style. I wanted to make sure the put the live edge wood and glass right up front. What better way than as a hero image integrated with the navigation to grab attention.

Poolside Serverices

Poolside Services

design

The challenge for this was to design a login screen for an app. It could be any type of login screen to be used for a phone, tablet, web app, etc. Since this was going to be my initial Dribble shot, I wanted to of course use a pink color. So with me being a massive fan of the 80s, I just pulled from that source for colors. As for the purpose of the app, I wanted to have a simple interface to login as if someone already had an account for a service that you could order drinks and food via poolside at some super fancy retro hotel or resort.

Argo Sales

Argo Sales

design
development

This project was a design collaboration with Dax Justin as it was his client. We worked togther designing mockups and revisions and landed on this as the final layout design. After the approval of this design it was up to me to create a WordPress theme using out design. As Argo Sales did not have a web developer at this time, it was tasked to me to be install WordPress, configure it for security, database backups, SEO and implement the newly created theme.

I have applied this theme to my personal site as it is no longer being used by Argo Sales.
