For my senior thesis, I wanted to create the look & feel for a proposed Boston Summer Olympics. The mark captures the energy and feeling of Boston and it's relationship with the harbor. It's double image depicts a clipper ship and the Olympic flame.
My passion for the Olympics came to fruition when my college thesis became the inspiration for Boston's push to bid for the 2024 Summer Olympic & Paralympic Games.
As Senior UX Designer at Fidelity, it's been my role to help create a new responsive experience for our customers. Launching in 2014–2015, Fidelity.com was overhauled to be fully responsive behind the log in. It was a designers playground to take a busy and mundane experience and make it easier to digest. From desktop to mobile and tablet, a user is now able to easily check their balances, view their positions & execute trades on the go.
We continue to make progressive enhancements based on user testing and feedback to provide the best customer experience in the industry.
Design trends continue to change and we're always looking to make the experience cleaner and simpler. Below are some forward thinking examples of how a user may see their account in months to come!
New Spot Illustrations
Worked to develop and continue to refine our new illustration style for the site. The combination of simple a line with transparent shapes help add a touch of color when needed without the distraction of photography.
The summary experience was re-designed with a masonry of 'cards' that display the most important pieces of information that a user can choose to prioritize or hide.
Design standards and red line specs were created to keep the 'card' designs aligned across the experience and give other designers the building blocks to create new 'cards' in the future.
Future Vision Concept
Future Individual Account Concept
The initial release of Fidelity.com was great but if a designer had free range to overhaul the experience without constants, this is how I could see my future cash account. Clean, visual, sign me up!
'Income Illustrator' Mobile Tool Concept
In an effort to help our users visualize how much they could be saving in retirement, I explored taking an antiquated desktop tool and making it mobile first. This "sandbox" application allows the a user to preview changing their contribution % or retirement age to see how it effects their retirement income over time.
Watch List Visualizations 1.0
Working with Fidelity Labs, I was the primary designer for the first iteration of the Watch List app. This feature for the iPad is integrated with the Fidelity's iPad app. Users can new insights by monitoring price changes over time, and compare Watch List symbols in a heatmap.
The interface allows you to select a time frame, select a play speed, and watch how the stock prices for symbols in your Watch List changed over time. You can also see high and low water mark indicators for the maximum and minimum percent change over the selected time period.
The larger images on the left display the final product while the thumbnails to the right show samples of visual exploration & the tutorial overlay.
Responsive Mobile Navigation
Wireframed and user tested three different concepts for responsive navigation on a mobile formfactor: Off Canvas Accordion, Off Canvas Pagination and Push Down Accordion.
Style Tiles for TradeHub
Corey for Council
The words of President Obama's final address to the nation resonated with me and pushed me to run for local office in 2017. He said, “If something needs fixing, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself", so I did just that!
Not only was I the candidate but also the art director and chief! I designed my website, branding, literature and collateral that helped tie the look and feel of my campaign together.
Commissioned to design a brand for the Four Seasons Hotel Boston Run of Hope 5k. The annual race benefits pediatric cancer care and research at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children and Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center (MGH).
Created in 2008, the logo has now been in use for six race seasons. I've participated in the race and helped raise money for MGH since designing the logo.
As an Environmental Graphic Designer for Sasaki, I worked on a number of large-scale projects from designed and custom fabricated signage to extensive wayfinding systems.
Displayed are renderings from two projects for Massry Center for the Arts at the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY and two structural monuments designed to identify two new Californian neighborhoods.
Renderings & elevations created in SketchUp and Adobe Illustrator.
Massry Center for the Arts, Albany NY
Designed the directory for this new arts center at the College of St. Rose in Albany NY. Illustrated in Google SketchUp & Adobe Illustrator, these elevations show how the sign is fabricated and the materials used.
Easton Valley, California Neighborhood Identity
Rendered elevations in Google SketchUp to show the materials, fabrication, lighting and scale of these new neighborhood monuments.
In 2008, Sasaki transformed their riverfront headquarters with major structural & design renovations. As an environmental designer, I designed the privacy features of the conference rooms with 3M vinyl frosted crystal film. It was a cost effective way to make the walls look like etched glass. Inspired by the linear qualities of the lobby, offset cuttings were designed to let more light into the room while maintaining privacy.
Sasaki Associates, Lobby Branding
Worked on the application and fabrication of the company logotype in the new lobby. How it was positioned, the materials used (frosted semi-transparent acrylic letters), and the way it was lit. The light bar across the ceiling draws your eye in to this luminescent logotype.
In early 2015, I designed my best friends wedding website as part of their wedding gift. This fully responsive site allows their guests to arrange their accommodations, learn more about Cape Cod and connect them to the grooms wedding registry.
It was a fun side project and one that will hopefully make lives easier for the 140 attending guests!
