Design and SEO Portfolio


Toyota's Unlock the tC

Selected and designed the encounters, specced art assets, and wrote the script for this interactive web game for Toyota/Scion; the agency of record was LA’s Haley Miranda Group. This project won a BEST OF SHOW Addy award (American Advertising Federation) in Rochester, and drew 60,000 web visitors with a 94% level-to-level retention rate.

Anxiety Treatment Center Website

Site redesign for one of Austin’s leading psychology practices, one of our SEO clients. Site design is not work we seek out, but the client wanted to make sure it was done to specifications. This project involved a server transition of a live and operational website with no disruption of HIPAA-compliant email services.

Marquez Bond & Meisel Legal Website

Flash website for a California law firm, created using a customized template. The site features sound effects and a number of animated elements and transitions. The client was particularly pleased with the splash image, which emphasized their bicoastal sphere of operations.

Logo Video, Oracle OAUG Convention

Full-screen animation for worldwide Oracle Applications User Group convention in Hawaii. Click on the thumbnail above to view. There is no audio; this was built to loop on the big screen over convention hall music during speaker introductions and between sessions.

Logo Video, Austin Under 40 Event

We created this popular logo video to brand a live awards event at the Austin Hilton. It was used as a centerpiece of the event, setting mood and introducing the viewers to the charitable work being done by the Young Women’s Alliance and Young Men’s Business League. We paired it with video footage of the YWA and YMBL chairpersons, which we shot at Zilker Park.

Law Office of James Gill

SEO (search optimization) campaign and multiple site designs for this leading Austin law firm, which has gone from virtual invisibility to top-20 ranking for many highly-competitive keywords. At one point, James was top-ten in Google for the keyphrase “Austin DWI lawyer,” which is worth approximately $30 per click in paid advertising. Shown: previous site design. Linked: live site, which is also our design.

OCD Conference Full-Page Ad

Large-format print ad designed for the Anxiety Treatment Center of Austin to support their participation in an industry conference.

Substance TV

These wonderfully rich images were developed for different areas of Substance TV, a nationally-distributed digital magazine.

San Jose Mercury News Feature

An example of our content development skills. After some competition for publishing rights, this web spoof appeared in an April Fool’s feature on the front page of the Soapbox (Business Opinion) section of the San Jose Mercury News. And yes, some people were fooled. At least up until the bloody part.

UX Design Animation

Our client commissioned us to develop a blue-sky conceptualization of how their network security software might present threats and server status to sysadmins visually. Our deliverable included sketches, concepts, and this animation demonstrating a design in motion.

Oracle Graphic Design

One of the splash images developed (stateside, unfortunately) for an Oracle teambuilding event in South Korea.

The University of Texas' MGM Program

Complete web design revamp for the molecular genetics and microbiology program at UT Austin. (UT has since reconfigured this program and brought the website under internal control.)
