One of my favorite companies ever, Monetate, called me back into action this fall. Thought Merchants’ worked with them over two years ago when they were just 16 people large, now they are over 125! Here are a couple of snapshots of our work together.
Gill and Spencer (two Monetate developers) at the table and some random guy lurking on the sidelines.
Epic story breakdown on the whiteboard.
Pivotal Labs and Thought Merchants have partnered again to produce an application to redefine how you watch a movie on your tablet. While I am light on details, this new project is attempting to redefine the way users watch and own movies in their own homes.
This mock-up is of a user viewing all the movies they currently own, and shared movies.
Once a user selects a movie, they are presented with options to share or watch that available movie.
Bryan Helmkamp recently traveled to Denver to participate in this years Ruby Conference, and he needed a t-shirt that represented “Object Symphony” for his product Code Climate. Listed below are a few different revisions of the shirt designs I produced for his product.
is software that rates the quality of your projects code to help you create maintainable software for years to come. The concept behind the shirt is that good software is built through a delicate balance of different objects.
Simple Squares - the eventual shirt that ended up getting printed.
This crazy knockout was interesting but too cluttered.
The Code Climate badge is awesome, but this knockout did not maintain readiblity enough.
Again another masking of this crazy isometric illsustration - not enough brand clarity to execute on the brief.
Sweet ass looking type, but not enough visuals.
The preliminary illustration for the Code Climate t-shirt design. Done on tracing paper and an isometric grid. Oh man I can’t tell you how much I love isometric designs.
