Shutter Tours Re-Design

I was hired by Shutter Tours to help increase their conversion rates. Their previous site wasn't mobile friendly and their mobile traffic had increased 50% for the previous year. We took a responsive approach and their conversion rates increased by 30% in the first three months and they increased their sales by almost 50%.

Expedia National Parks Promo

I was tasked with creating an interactive map of the United States that people could click through to various national parks. Some parks were considered "featured" while other parks were just to be dots of the location. This was done with a fake grid overlay that was generated with Javascript and then the parks were plotted on the map with coordinates.

I was also tasked with pulling in dynamic blog content with their "National Parks" tag which we were able to do through a simple JSON call. All code will be repurposed for future projects.

Expedia Interns Page

Expedia decided to run a campaign called "The Interns" which included video and social media integration as well as a way for people to ask questions concerning travel. This was to drive younger people to their site to book trips as well as inform users how they could get better deals while traveling. I did the coding of this page utilizing internal development tools. I did not do the design.

Penn State World Campus Course Page Design

I was asked to design a layout for Penn State World Campus courses that would allow multiple navigation types as well as keeping "mobile first" in mind. We were able to come up with a cleaner design that focuses on the content, rather than the navigation. This has yet to be implemented in code.

30% Designer

My passion for music sparked my interest in design and I kind of fell into web design by accident. I have worked as a front-end web designer for over seven years and I enjoy learning about how to make the web a more enjoyable experience.
