Light, airy, clean. The iOS 7 redesign allowed me to entirely refresh the UI for the FedEx Mobile app.
The web badly needs as well-designed, lightweight Navigation Controller. Just "push()" and "pop()" and everything else is taken care of.
Qubed Peas and fedex.com Tracking!
FedEx Tracking needed some architectural changes to help with future enhancements. I had recently finished Qubed Peas and it was just waiting to help out.
Games are already really cool and have great images. Why is my design forcing customers to look at other things? Time to get it back to being about the games!
It was time for Qubed Peas to grow a UI and build system. The Patch Viewer was born (and tons of supporting services)
Joe Monkey was trapped in The Lab for years. Finally he saw his chance to escape. Can you help?
A simple and elegant clock with weather forecasting. Finally, a use for those old iPads laying around.
The final property to be pulled into the "mobile" concept of tracking was the common fedex.com tracking website.
A huge rewrite of the Game Tracker system. Who doesn't love wood?
A silly match-3 slider game for iOS. Watch out for the Time Monster!
Metrics anyone? A clean, clear view into everything that is happening.
The FedEx Mobile experience moved to the iPad in 2011. When it did it needed a new design language.
Gamer Book was an iPad-only app offering advanced filtering, a recommendations engine, cloud data syncing and much more.
A fast, goal-based exercise data collection app for iOS.
Android was adopted after BlackBerry -- a crazy idea now. Most hips still had crackberries belted to them and an Android device in the wild was an odd thing.
At the time, in business, everyone had a BlackBerry. Creating a version of our FedEx Mobile app for the far-less-able handsets seemed a reasonable concept. My insistance of sharing design themes could have marked the end for me...
In 2008 I heard about the iPhone. Within 2 days I had near-final designs on my table. The first version of the product was very Cocoa Touch-centric but also strongly represented the FedEx brand.
In early 2007 I spent much of my personal time working on designs to break FedEx away from the standard JSP request/response model. Once Adobe Flex 3 hit the market I was a man on a mission.
The third release of Game Tracker represented an entire rewrite of the engine and an entirely redesigned UI.
Customers loved it.
Using Adobe AIR I conceptualized, designed and wrote a tracking solution for the desktop.
With active syncing, desktop notifications, and historical data available to the user, FedEx Desktop represented a leap forward in installed applications for the company.
In 2008 I designed a Twitter client with a twist. This client allowed users to create "lists" of users, creating a focused reading experience.
