The Learning Care Group is the second-largest for-profit child care provider in North America. They own eight different child care brands, one of which is Montessori Unlimited.
We created this CMS website using Sitefinity, keeping in mind that it would also have to act as a template for all of the other brands as well.
After creating the Montessori brand site, we set out to use the same components and basic site structure for the other SEVEN Learning Care Group brands so that all of them would use the same CMS. Including LCG’s newest brand, Pathways Learning Academy. Each brand still has its own look and feel and some individual components.
A positive behavior support app we created for the internal only use of The Learning Care Group. Teachers often have issues with misbehaving children and this app gives them the opportunity to look up anything they don't know how to handle. If little Bobby wont stop hitting other children, his teachers can look up many different strategies to help him, then assign one to him so that other teachers will know to use it as well.
Most people have a crutch word that they unconsciously use. Some friends and I thought it would be fun (and a great test for just how strong our friendship was) to create a counter for the crutch words that we say. And obviously that counter app should have a 3 legged rhino on a crutch!
Unfortunately this is not currently in the app store, but it will be back!
The Everbrook Academy website began as a simple handraiser page for a new brand with no open schools. With minimal budget we continued to expand this page as more schools and more content grew. Now it has been fully transported to a CMS (like the Montessori site) but this was an interesting process to be a part of.
Bunzl is a distribution company supplying their customers all around the world with the essential products they need to run their businesses. Reliable Redistribution Resource (R3) services North America.
This is a closed catalog site for their customers. It was important to keep it extremely easy to use and functional for users new to the site, and customers that come back and order the same things time and time again.
The interesting thing about something like an internal dashboard, like a website for the Ford Dealers, is that you can follow well known brand styles, but you can also expand those to make things stand out a bit more and help make the team more proficient. In this style guide, I introduced the pop of bright color within the standards for things like alerts and error messages. Things that needed to stand out. It still works well with the brand colors but gives the user’s eyes a little boost in the right direction.
Shown here are a few different design approaches for the AAA Life Insurance website. The goal was to simplify the life insurance process for people by making everything very clearly front and center.
A web design approach for the International Society for Technology in Education. The goal was to make it feel playful while also feeling very informative. Similar to an online magazine.
When our company designed the AAA Express Term Life Insurance quote tool, it was a very fun process with lots of laughs and inside jokes along the way. To celebrate the launch of the site, we came up with the idea of creating a fun board game for all the members of the team, with some of the jokes that came up along the way.
After everyone on the team helped to remember all the funny times, I then designed, illustrated, and hand crafted each of the game boards. The game piece characters were actually our personas we created at the start of the project!
The humorous nature of this project and the ability to illustrate it, made it one of my favorite things I was able to work on!
The Boy from Lam Kien is a short story written by Miranda July about a woman with agoraphobia who can't seem to get further than 27 steps outside of her house.
The following shows my interpretation of the story as a screen printed poster, a book with only images, and a book with images and text.
Handmade glasses for the Organic Produce Summit. Veg Fresh Farms thought it would be fun to have something more interactive at their booth this year. So they contracted me to make these super fun glasses. The fruits and veggies were illustrated by me, with care to make each of them different! Even the right and left of each fruit is different than the other. Love being able to put that extra level of craft and care into things!
