Product Design & Illustration

Spent a few months doing illustration, product design, and email marketing for the delightful weirdos over at Carbonmade.




Research, user flows, design & prototyping for a section of the user's profile allowing them to indicate their availability for Full-Time, Freelance, or "Dream Job" offers.

Some general conclusions were that each type of job needed specifics on location and details, plus freelance availability in a natural language format.

This profile section also let them define and rank specialties, or things they want to be hired to do.

Initial prototype mockup here, but you know, there were close to a zillion different versions.

Freelance Availability

Specialty Selection

Site Settings

Simple set of actions to allow a user to choose the thumbnail image that would be shown when sharing their portfolios on social sites.


Illustration and design for an email campaign encouraging users to make updates to their accounts and portfolios.

Iterated on three separate versions sent to different groups of users to determine the best click-through rate.

We had a great copywriter and a developer that helped make my octopus wiggle across all kinds of screens.
