Hi, I'm Carson

Skills

UI/UX Design

The best designs are informed by data, but designed for humans. I'm well versed in every step of the creative process, from personas and wireframes to exporting print-ready files and pixel-perfect mockups.

Wireframes Websites Apps

Front-end Development

Front-end code is where form and function meet. I'm a pro at writing clean, well-organized code, making use of modern frameworks and pre-processors to help with the heavy lifting.

Combining my interest in archery with my ability as a front-end developer, I designed and built an HTML app to make it easier to score and analyze my shots. With myself as the client, I used a UX driven approach to plan the screens and flow of the app, styling it off of my previous target log project.

Loveland Living Planet AquariumRead More

The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium based in Utah came to Speak Creative looking to update their existing site to reflect their recent growth. A new sitemap had to be drafted while I worked on template mockups with a fun and modern style. I built the site on WordPress, creating several custom Gutenberg blocks using ACFs to accomodate their unique content needs.

A long-time Speak client, the Southern College of Optometry needed a styling update to their site while leaving the content mostly unchanged. Using SiteWrench's theming feature, I was able to reskin existing templates, designing directly in the browser. Several new landing templates were added as well, specifically one highlighting life in Memphis to attract potential students and a home page featuring significant statistics and video testimonials.

Marx Bensdorf, a well-established real estate agency in Tennessee needed a styling update, marking their 150 years in business. Their main site and agent pages were already built using SiteWrench, so I was able to take their existing content and style new templates directly in the browser. I also improved the functionality of their agent directory and property listings.

Savage Construction is a Memphis, TN based company that builds residential, commercial, and even medical sites. They came to Speak Creative looking to update their old site. Along with refreshing the design to reflect their new branding I also developed a filterable portfolio page to highlight their growing list of projects.

Inspired by a combined love of pixel art and text-based adventures, I decided to design my own UI for a choose-your-own-path game. I used sprites and pixelated image rendering along with my own custom icon set and a modified pixel font to define the aesthetic. The cool, dark color scheme helps conjure the right mood for the story (which is still in the works).
