Some of the projects we've produced, both under the Sparkleworks banner and elsewhere. For some projects, you can click the thumbnail to see more detail.


Scion's Unlock the tC

Wrote and developed 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 visitors with a 94% level-to-level retention rate.


Anxiety Treatment Center Website

Site redesign for one of Austin's leading psychology practices. This project involved a server transition of a live and operational website with no disruption of 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.

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

Site redesign for this leading Austin law firm, which has gone from virtual invisibility to top-20 ranking for many highly-competitive keywords.

OCD Conference Full-Pager

Large-format print ad designed for the Anxiety Treatment Center of Austin.

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. 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 set of UX designs for their innovative network security systems. Our deliverable included sketches, concepts, and this animation demonstrating a design in motion.


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.)


Oracle Graphic Design

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