Wray Ward Intranet

I was accepted to the FORM class of 2019 as UX design and development intern at Wray Ward. One of my major projects was designing the UI for a company intranet. There was a project kickoff with requirements a timeline. I presented the final interface on InVision.

SetDev LLC

SetDev LLC is an exciting new software development company with some incredibly talented personnel onboard. This Fort Lauderdale, FL based agency-incubator hybrid is always a pleasure to work with and for this project I was tasked to do a complete site re-design. I also helped with some branding and typography detailing.

Ballast Ventures

This brand is something that I wanted to develop early on in my carreer. It is a representation and actualization of my career goal of owning a multi-faceted company that acted as (1) a creative agency, (2) a venture capital firm, and (3) a music label. The company and idea are still infancy but Ballast Ventures has already been working to gain clients and market experience.

Ballast Ventures is an internet company for visionaries.

Coming Soon.

BStreet.io – Crypto Wiki Price Checker

During the summer of 2018, I assisted a seed-funded startup in partnership with Venture Capital Draper Dragon as their first intern. I collaborated in designing and developing a revolutionary cryptocurrency price-checking wiki. I headed the design and UI of the website and also built a landing page for beta registrations.

I supported the team in all capacities ranging from company strategy to development. I researched cryptocurrencies; read through whitepapers and assessed each coin’s application of blockchain including P2P connection, middlemen fees, censorship resistance, and micro-payments.

Block Key Capital

Block Key Capital (BKC) is a US-based research and investment firm dealing exclusively with the emerging cryptoasset class.

BKC’s founding partners were first brought together while creating their university’s blockchain organization. Here they discovered a mutual passion and drive to be a part of the blockchain revolution. With more than 20 years of combined experience in the space, these eight like-minded individuals launched BKC Investments with the goal of providing exposure and education in this emerging asset class.

I developed the logo, brand identity, website, and all internal and outbound marketing materials for the financial startup firm.

County Reinsurance, Limited

During my freshman year at Miami University I had an internship in Winston-Salem, NC with a creative agency as a web designer. I was tasked with the full project of designing a site for County Reinsurance, Limited in Clemmons, NC. I worked on the site from start to finish and made all changes that were requested after proofing.

Album/NBA Jersey Mockup

 

I made this mockup webstore for french designer Patso Dimitrov’s rap album/NBA jersey concept. We were in talks to sell these amazing jerseys that he designed. Eventually, we would run into copyright problems trying to get them made. However, I liked the clean, minimalist, and plain look that it had and chose to keep the site live.
