about me

I am a UX Designer who spent my career designing and developing rich user-experiences for web-based applications. Since leaving the agency and marketing world 5-years ago, I've been immersed entirely in Microsoft SharePoint, going back to SharePoint 2003.

I am here to help you develop, grow, and achieve your goals by using sophisticated solutions, and engaging user experience in Microsoft Sharepoint Technologies.

Steve Madden

What started off as a Quick-Start for Steve Madden's IT to demonstrate SharePoint grew into something a little more custom. This was built in a sandbox environment as a playground and demonstration device to the business and includes ties into backend line-of-business databases for reporting and KPIs. There is even a really cool Google Map of their retail stores which give a rich experience while upper management keeps their finger on the pulse of the national store chain. Clicking on any store to the right opens a traditional Google Map balloon with some real-time store data embedded. Check out the previews below for more.

Dun & Bradstreet

Every now and then I have a WSS 3.0 branding project land in my lap, and the only approach really is to go with creating a custom SharePoint theme. This was one I did for Dun & Bradstreet leveraging existing styles from their web site and current previous intranet.

New York University School of Law

A typical Quick-Start to allow University faculty, administration, and staff to play in a sandbox, this build had a good amount of content management leveraged. The goal was simple: match the look and feel of their public facing web site in MOSS 2007, provide approval workflows for content, and show off some of what you get with SharePoint out of the box. Mission accomplished.

Girl Scouts of America

This is probably as customized as it gets. The entire user experience has been manipulated in such a way that anyone can easily create and manage content within the Girl Scouts new extranet. From the home page, to various site templates, to library views and functionality, to Administration, to My Sites, there is not a single area of functionality that is left untouched. There are even a slew of wizards that guide users towards meeting there needs for common SharePoint administrative tasks like creating sites. Check out some of the links below to get a taste of what can be done with some brilliant SharePoint gurus.

This project was a little more involved than your average SharePoint branding project. It was implemented using and extending SharePoint's Web Content Management and Language Variations, and deliverables included custom web parts, controls, page layouts, and a master page all built variation-aware. Simply put, everything was built to be dynamic to translate various component depending on the site's language. Read more...

Parsons Brinckerhoff

This was probably one of the most complicated SharePoint branding projects to date regarding implementation because of the rounded corners. The banner is also a 3-part liquid design. Both were mainly implemented with a theme, but some custom layout and master page work were in order for their custom search controls and Office Clocks. More about that coming soon.
