Project Overview

Visual design skills play an important role in designing a complete product, so I make an effort to maintain visual design skills despite spending the majority of my time doing UX work. In this case study, you'll find a collection of illustration, motion graphics, and icon design work. Every piece here has a story.

Monument Illustrations

Created as my contribution to a larger project, this trio of illustrations was one of my first explorations in digital illustration. It features three famous monuments in a flat, modern aesthetic. In the future, I may expand upon the trio.

Assorted Icons

Icon design is a skill that continually pays off through a wide variety of projects. Whether for work, a freelance client, or even just redesigning my own brand, I'm frequently designing new icon sets. Eventually, I may transform some sets into standalone products in the form of iMessage sticker packs.

Assorted Illustrations

From time to time, I still spend a bit of time exercising my Adobe Illustrator skills by creating standalone illustrations like these. Pieces like this are an easy way to practice this skill while making fun things for other people. Although it's not the most relevant skill in my UX workflow, it's sometimes nice to be holding illustration techniques in my back pocket.

The Relevance of Visual Design Skills

Throughout the global design community, there's a broad discussion about the value of skill specialization in our industry. Personally, I'm an avid believer that skill diversification is a very good thing for modern designers. I see value in keeping a diverse skill set, so I consistently balance product, UX, and visual design strategy. Despite spending almost all my time practicing product and user experience design, I make an effort to maintain visual design skills like those found in this case study. Different skills inform one another, and all of them play a role in designing a complete product experience.

Science—It Matters

This snappy piece is a concept created for a science blog, but ultimately not incorporated since the project was shelved. Had the project continued, this would have been the first in a series of animated words related to science.

Animated Wordmark

This animation was one of my first explorations in After Effects. The MAKE campaign is an old personal project that I've since retired, but since animating this mark I've popped back into AE every so often to polish my motion graphics skills. This stuff is fun!

Utilizing Autoplay

This was a quick piece for a university, from back when auto-playing video was a new feature in social media. The university needed promotional graphics for an event, so I gave them a series designed to take advantage of the new auto-play trend. The new clips resulted in much higher online interaction leading up to the event compared to their previous, static efforts.
