Sam The Cooking Guy Website

Sam’s 3.6 million+ YouTube subscribers didn’t want to be limited by categories or keywords. I designed and developed his new website in Webflow so Sam can easily add new recipes with high res photos and videos. Plus, visitors can now quickly search and find anything in his 1,800+ recipe catalog.

CPG Digital Website

As a startup, the logo was the closest thing CPG Digital had to brand standards at the time. I organized the content, wrote the copy, designed the web/brand standards, and developed this small responsive site in Webflow.

Perception Health Website

If Perception Health was going to get attention from a healthcare system often seen as driven by the status quo, they needed to have a clear message delivered with some profound impact.

Physical Web Gallery Illustrations

Phy.net needed to show how art galleries could promote that more information was available “On the Physical Web” whenever visitors saw the Physical Web logo with a work of art.

Lobby CRE Platform UX/UI

Lobby CRE's users needed an “at-a-glance” performance overview of their portfolio of properties and the ability to drill into the details. They also needed intuitive tools that helped them easily calculate and evaluate risk scenarios.
