This is some of the work i did for user interfaces, on-line games and social media, phone avatars, and mobile games and apps.
These icons were created for Baby's Firsts a photo sharing app.
These were hobby icons for Hallmark Park. Users would create a profile by choosing five icons representing their interests. You could then connect with other players who had the same profile. Since the game was for children, we had be creative in how we could enable them to connect without using specific personal information. We had a user-name generating feature and a select-only chat system.
These icons were created for Hallmark's Social Calendar, a Facebook app. It was a new take on the twelve days of Christmas. Users received one a day leading up to the holiday.
These were for an early mobile icon-based messaging system. We thought that texting thing was too cumbersome and would never catch on. I did like the challenge of working in 24 x 24 pixels. When the project started, the first color phone had yet to come out.
Okay yes, I did start this idea before we even had color phones.
Eventually i got with it and moved on to the new flip phones.
Hallmark Park was a multi-player on-line game. It had an amusement park theme. Players would choose an avatar and walk around the park playing mini-games, chatting, and dressing your character in outfits bought at the souvenir shop in the middle of the park. You didn't use any real money, just the purple tickets you won playing the mini-games. You could find randomly generated collectables to earn special outfits.
These images were created as limited edition signed prints for the new HMK store in the Country Club Plaza of Kansas City.
The Big Bang created the elements, the fundamental substances that make up everything in the universe. There was a lesser known event that created all the things that didn't make it onto the periodic table. Things that may not have matter, but really do matter. Things like excitement, frustration, love, hate, silliness, weirdness, luck, stress, cuteness, fear, or charm. That lesser known event was The Big Boom.
Big Boom is a universe of characters, a friendly, playful, imaginative, inclusive, and occasionally even philosophical place. It was designed to be an ever expanding social expression, character based property.
