A healthcare portal design where users can book classes, appointments, buy packages and monitor their health via an interactive dashboard.
OMNOVA Solutions is an international chemical company whose website needed brought into the modern age of web design. This project was run using the agile process with my role being the lead UI Designer. Overall, this project took months of hard work being that the website needed a complete overhaul. Sitecore was utilized as the CMS system and Bootstrap was the responsive grid system we chose. This is the biggest website I've ever designed and really had a hand in not only UI but UX as well.
The overall tone I created was clean, simple, modern and easy to read—a far departure from what once was a confusing website.
I worked on mobile comps for the redesign of AAMC.org for students. The UI was created by my fellow Celerity designer Alex. I took what he started and created most of the mobile layouts for the site. Also attached is a pattern library I created for our developers to denote functionality.
FutureDerm is a skincare company based in Pittsburgh. They were in need of a packaging and label redesign for their retinol and caffeic serum. The company wanted a clinical feel to their product because their focus is heavy on the science behind skincare and beauty. I created a clean design with a touch of silver foil stamping to add some elegance.
Since developing this design for them, they've taken it and applied my work to their new products. Check out their products here.
The Girasole's Italian restaurant was in need of a rebrand to bring their menus and website into the new millenium. Girasole is a fun, family-friendly Italian restaurant located in the trendy Shadyside neighborhood. They were looking for a colorful, beautiful design that would appeal to their wide range of customers.
I thought a hand-painted approach would bring warmth and character to their business. I spent a good amount of time painting all of the Italian on the three menus and website (Wine, Lunch and Dinner). The overall effect I think speaks well not only to their business but to their family as well.
I had the privilege of designing all of the Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon participants shirts again this year. The design includes Men's, Women's, Kids, Pet, and all volunteer shirts. This year, I focused on the Birmingham bridge and chose bright colors to compliment the shirt colors (navy and teal). I wanted the design to be bold, bright and eye-catching so they'd really stand out in photos and to spectators.

This is an ongoing project with the DICK's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. I do a lot of their print collateral as well as their race day shirts for the Marathon in early May. Work completed at MCM Communications, shirt design collaboration with John McWilliams.
Founded in 1904, Natrona Bottling Company is a small, independently owned bottling company that takes great pride in producing a high quality line of soft drinks. The company was in need of a redesign to bring their website up to speed with their new packaging labels.
The site is meant to have a classic, almost throwback feel to the days when pop was real and authentic tasting. I wanted the site to feel bright and clean with the right imagery and textures. I pulled inspiration from an old wooden crate the company gave me and managed to sneak in a few photos I took of it on a few pages.
This year, the American Ireland Fund's award is going to David McCullough, a Pulitzer Prize Winning author. David is a celebrated historian, author and Pittsburgh native. I decided to go with a vintage book-theme throughout all the pieces. I wanted to incorporate classic-feeling typography with the old feeling of the books. The overall effect is warm and inviting and true to David.
Work includes a save-the-date, invite, envelope, tickets and program journal
Elvis Electric, LLC is a new company in Pittsburgh. The owner and his team do quality work for commercial and residential properties. Known for his skill level and fun personality, Elvis Matejcic brings years of experience to each job. He wanted a fun, eye-catching logo and website so I gave him two electric orange and blue colors in addition to an iconography pattern. The rest of the branding project consists of business cards and a website.
I created an invitation suite for a friend of mine getting married. The bride gave me full rein to do whatever I wanted, but I had to include green and purple as the main colors. I rarely get the chance to paint, so I did watercolor on the invite and RSVP card front and back. The bride also loves flowers and I wanted to incorporate some foilage and flowers in a whismsical way. In the end, I think the effect is very pretty and eye-catching.
Party at the Pier is an upscale celebration held to benfit Pittsburgh's Riverfronts. Hosted by Riverlife, the theme this year was TORCH, a celebration of fire and water. I tried a few logo options, but settled on a simple mark that was easily identifiable on TV, print, and web.
Additional work included developing a website and invitations for over 700 guests. Subtle smoke patterns and the continuation of fire and water through the colors orange and blue are carried through all the pieces.
Heinz Field corporate offices asked us to design their three pieces to go in Season Ticket Holders' mailers. Previous versions of these pieces lacked cohesion and a brand. A complete re-work was designed and a unity is now evident throughout the Fan Guide, Parking Guide and GameDay Guide. Work completed at MCM Communications, Summer 2013.
Eat'n Park wanted to sell their Mini Smiley Cookies in grocery stores. I came up with the concept of a milk carton package to house the cookies. The regular box holds 24 and the special edition Valentine's Box holds 12. I also designed the individual cookie wrappers. There are 5 color wrap versions for the regular, round cookies and 1 pink version for the Valentine's.
Cookies are being sold exclusively in Market Districts.
I redesigned the Firefighter Throwdown website for the upcoming throwdown in San Diego. I went with a cleaner, bolder design that is easy to navigate and appeals to the target demographic of firefighters and Crossfit athletes. Also, an ad was created for Fire Apparatus magazine highlighting the event in January, 2015.
St. Barnabas Health System was in need of a special website solely for their Crystal Conservatories. The Crystal Conservatories is available for weddings, parties, pool parties, anniversaries, reunions, etc. They were looking for an elegant, sophisticated feel that would draw in potential clients.
I created the new logo in addition to a full website where people can read about The Crystal Conservatories, how much rental fees are, view photo galleries and get in contact.
View the site: http://thecrystalconservatories.com/
This is a brochure completed for the Village at St. Barnabas in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania. I decided to do an iron cross folded brochure to have a reveal-like experience. The iron cross also alludes back to a Christian cross—St. Barnabas is rooted in Christian faith.
Here is a healthy mix of logos that I've had accepted and published and some that have never seen the light of day.
