I was design lead on mapping and augmented reality within Bing where I built a design team for Blaise Aguera y Arcas. A four year charter that included the design development of Photosynth technology. I took special interest in Photosynth because of it's potential for intimately mapping our world. The elements we shipped spanned across projects like the web releases, Win8 panos, the new brand, and mobile applications. In 2014 Photosynth took photographic capture to the next level with immersive 3D capabilities Images - Video - Tutorial
Design Lead, Bing maps. Strata Labeling and portal concepts shipped early 2014 on Win8. Strata Labeling is the 3D transparency and scaling nature of the labels. Portal concepts were linked to the Photosynth brand and allowed a magnifying glass like affordance to transport into that space. I also landed a unified set of design principles in that time. This allowed Rom Impas and myself to design the Crystl map style that crystallized the combined style and brand needs of Nokia, WinPhone and Bing.
Responsible for the camera design for the series 7 phone, photo hub, and photo sharing/viewing experiences. I was part of the design team creating the new modern look and principles that were being developed at this time. Slideshow
As the senior art director for Lynda.com in 2009 I provided brand guidance and designs across the product lines working directly with the owners. We also developed the web site, and video content and managed the design team. All the while creating and hiring for the steady stream of illustration work that accompanied each of the authors titles. Images - Video
