I am a multi-disciplinary digital designer with the ability to work within both the visual art-direction and logical execution of products and campaigns.

Brisbane International Film Festival Website

Client: QAGOMA (Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art)

UX, UI, Layout Design

As their first year hosting the Brisbane International Film Festival (BIFF), QAGOMA needed a high impact, but beautifully simple website to enable users to search through and wishlist the 100+ films that screen over the two week long festival. 

I designed an intuitive web experience that immerses users in the festival and its films, while providing useful information and allowing them to plan their festival line-up by using comprehensive search, filtering and wishlist functionalities.

For users that didn’t know what they wanted to see (like myself), I created a handy Film Chooser questionnaire that gave relevant film suggestions based on their genre and date preferences.

SOS Week Microsite

Client: SLSQ

UX, UI and Visual Design.

Surf Life Saving Queensland needed a compelling digital destination to establish the new SOS Week fundraising initiative. 

I designed a single page microsite to highlight the iconic brand’s impact on Australian’s and the need to donate. The website is integrated with a donation portal plus information on how to get involved outside of donating.

Beam Website

Client: Sunsuper

UX, UI and Visual Design.

Awards: 2 x BADC Bronze. 

Beam has a great and unique product, offering optimised payroll software to help make superannuation simple, but with no imagery or brand style I needed a way to help the content stand out as digestible and interesting.

Working with our sister agency, Rumble, we created the ‘Beam’ character and a suite of illustrated brand icons across the site, breaking up the content into easily understood parts and injecting a distinct personality. Users were brought on a journey to introduce ‘Beam’ from the start of their user experience, before delving into bite-sized content pieces dispersed with simple, and relevant illustrations and sprinkles of interaction magic. 

Setting itself a part from the crowd, this piece of work won 2 x bronze awards at BADC in 2018. (UX Design Award & Digital Media Award).

Sunsuper Digital Dashboard

Client: Sunsuper

UX, UI and Visual Design.

A mobile-first, personalised digital dashboard filled with tools to help Sunsuper members explore their annual statement and future retirement.

Removing the need for members to login, we fed through a personalised URL to their email allowing users to see a personalised version of their Superannuation. The tools needed to be responsive, easy and quick to use to ensure engagement across the dashboard continued.

Between 2017 and 2018 versions the dashboard saw a massive increase in engagement, longer time spent on tools and more clicks on Call to Actions.
