Craigslist applification exploration

As a firm believer of the “applification” of all websites, I sometimes like to take shots at re-architecting popular services. In this example, I was looking for something on craigslist and noticed the site had not been updated since its inception. There isn’t always a case to redesign or reengineer a product, and in craigslist’s this is probably more true […]

The desks were out in the open so anyone could just walk right up and see what you were working on. Naturally, people were […]

The following is my design method for Pearson Vue’s badge platform Acclaim. I was responsible for the creative direction, UX and visual design for the MVP.
