The global human resource and financial consulting firm Mercer needed an aesthetic design for their web site that better reflected their specialized expertise in corporate consulting. Working with their product development team I designed a more contemporary aesthetic to their overall site and helped transition front end development to a CSS-based approach to page layout. In addition we developed new IA for content areas to better promote their growing array of reports, podcasts and events. These changes were implemented across Mercer sites worldwide.

MTV’s pro-social campaign, Think MTV, launched a stand-alone website to help young people network and bring meaningful change to the world. I was brought on in 2007 to guide the launch and art direct new initiatives, including Choose or Lose 2008. The site was a social network allowing users to upload videos, blog, and start discussions. The site won an Emmy Award in 2008.

In February 2008 we relaunched the site for MTV Tr3s, transitioning from an all-flash build to a CSS driven design. This allowed us to take advantage of the video and community platforms of MTV.com. I worked closely with channel creatives to create a template design that complimented the style of the channel.

In 2004 the cable channel MTV2 re-branded itself as an alternative destination for rock and hip-hop entertainment for young men. I worked with the digital production team and channel VP to re-imagine what an entertainment site could be. I design directed the site through a series of presentations of information architecture, look-and-feel studies, interactive mockups and functional prototypes. The team’s collaboration led to such distinct features as creative site intros, a defecating two-headed dog logo, prominent display of photography, and a new interactive advertising model.

My focus on consistency in site architecture and design detail led to my designation as Senior Designer in charge of cross-site design standards for MTV.com. Working with site design parameters for the US site set in early 2002, I developed an intranet style guide reference for designers and producers. I was also lead designer in a variety of facelifts implemented on the homepage, hub pages and cross-site navigation, as well as a template for dynamic show content.
