Imaware Health Site & Design

Web Design
UX/UI

Imaware is a at-home blood testing company that initially started with Celiac disease testing and has since expanded to test for many other things like diabetes, vitamin-d, and more recently, COVID-19.

I'm a

designer,

but I like to challenge myself to be more than just a designer with every project.

Branding

Not just creating logos but creating an entire identity around a brand. Colours, typography, voice, animations, all these things play into what a brand should stand for. A great brand guideline helps to ensure these standards are maintained.

UX/UI Design

User experience and user interface. Think of it like a ketchup bottle. Good UI is the classic glass bottle while good UX is the plastic squeeze bottle. I focus on creating user-friendly and accessible sites that complement the design.

Web Design & Development

Designing and then developing a website is an exciting challenge when working with great brands and people. I work in many programs such as Webflow to create websites and will use my knowledge in Javascript to help create unique animations that work with the brand.

Animation & Motion Design

Though I may not work at Pixar, I understand the importance of good animation and how movement brings a brand alive. Whether it's a small animated logo or a company intro video, Motion design is a key aspect to my brand toolset.

Recognitions.
