My Case Studies


Important Note: All images and projects located within each case study are details of projects I've personally completed. In most all cases I was the sole individual completing 100% of the design and architecture for the projects being shown from ideation to pre-production deliverables; unless otherwise noted in an individual case study.  I won't take credit for someone else's work as a consultant, because I will always be expected to create the same design.  I do visual/graphics design for most all you will see, along with the UX / Information Architecture on most of the product designer roles with initial primary guidance from client stakeholders, design team and product owners.

Also included are images of high-fidelity and low-fidelity wire-frames, mock ups, diagrams, personas, analysis, and prototypes of mobile (native OS and responsive web), software apps, websites, web-applications, portals, to video-wall screens and kiosks.



  • Cisco Systems


    Project: Prototypes, interactive designs and product design along with highly technical diagrams for UI models and architecture for Cisco's upcoming network management platform.  The goal of the project was to turn something highly complex and technical into a user-friendly, easy-to-use system that non-technical types could more easily use.  On this project I was assisted with other team members and a graphics designer for the main designs.
