Uniform Design System

Uniform is the design system for Hudl, a sports video company, whose mission is to help coaches, athletes and teams win. During it's first decade, Hudl rapidly grew from an upstart focused on american football to a global company, helping users of all sports. Without a cohesive, codified design language, design debt grew as Hudl expanded into new sports and new geographies. Uniform provides a shared, unified system for designers and developers to build cohesive products. During my tenure at Hudl, I was a member of the small, collborative team, trusted to create this system for our growing and expanding suite of products. I served as the lead css developer, occasional React component wrestler and primary accesibility czar. Visit Live Site

Uniform UI Documentation

For the first couple years of Uniform's existence, the Uniform-UI-Documentation site was the go to site for information about our CSS library, the correct HTML markup or even which React component to use. I handled the writing, development and addition of new features to the site. It was my one-man jam. I learned a lot being the maintainer of this site. Communicating how to use our site helped me be more attuned to the needs of Uniform's users. It also was a crash course in untangling legacy code, my own legacy code. Unfortunately, the site was put out to pasture when we launched the new documentation site in early 2018, but this project will always hold a special place in my heart. Read Case Study

The Grand Goodbye

In my previous life as a print designer and art director, I designed my fair share of goodbye pages for departing colleagues. They're a fun way to send them off with a laugh. This is the best goodbye page. I examined this goodbye page and the comeback page to work through and inform how I want to approach case studies. Read Case Study

The Comebacks

If you are a designer at a newspaper, one of the best assignments you can have is working in the Sports department. The hours are long and sometimes it's a grind, but it's worth it. This case study examines the Red Sox's comeback in the 2004 and 2007 ALCS. Along with this page, it was an exercise in thinking through an approach to case studies. Read Case Study

I served as a designer and front-end developer on this project, handling daily communication with the folks at Storey. Visit Live Site
