What's New & Cool

Newsday redesign wireframe and final

Concept to Completion

Wow. Redesign.

In my 10+ years working for Newsday I have been involved in (at least) 3 complete redesigns for www.newsday.com.

For the most recent redesign in 2020, I spearheaded the new module system structure that gives our editors great flexibility to adapt to any news situation.

Being involved in every aspect of its creation, these are general tasks I was involved in to get us from concept to completion:

  • purpose and goals established with stakeholders
  • research (user testing, user experience, competitors)
  • wireframing
  • design
  • front-end development
  • QA testing
  • Beta release and testing
  • full launch and ongoing AB and user testing

Every step along the way is a constant loop of presenting to stakeholders, incorporating feedback and gathering further user data. We are constantly updating features of our main news site.

LG TACTICS | A strategy-lite card game

The easy to learn battle card game with a clean minimal style

With this game I challenged myself to remove layers of intricate mechanics I normally end up creating in card games. An ultra simplified take on the CCG genre, my intention is for this to act as a subtle introduction to the story and future installments in the Light Gray Series.

The Fighter & The Father

Chris Weidman

The following project was made in collaboration with the Sports editors and Multimedia department for a unique video experience. View Long Islands own MMA champ Chris Weidman in this dual video experience, where you have the ability to swap between 2 video feeds synced up to the same audio.

Very proud of this one since it got me a trip into the city to attend the 60th NY Emmy Awards, while netting me a shiny trophy to boot.

Pathway to Power

One man's rise shines light on LI's corrosive system

A massive investigative news piece that was many years in the making. I was very fortunate to be a part of it and was responsible for the user interface, chapter navigation, and graphics for both the article and video.

The story follows a street thug turned millionaire as he gained political and business connections exposing corruption, crime and overall shadiness.

These are the stories journalists live for and it was satisfying to be a part of the team and make it all come together.
