Projects

  • TrackR

    October 2014

    We have been working with the folks at TrackR to help them with their web based marketing and product design. TrackR is a combination of physical product and mobile application on both iOS and Android platforms. TrackR helps people stay connected to their most prized possessions with GPS enabled tracking software and small devices that attach to practically anything. Mossio was tasked with marketing efforts from email campaigns to the redesign of the front facing website for TrackR. We also helped them define their initial mobile strategy by designing their first mobile application. Then a later redesign of that onto a more user focused approach with the second design of the mobile app. We also helped with packaging design so that the TrackR device could be sold in retail stores starting with BestBuy and Target.

    January 2015

    Mossio teamed up with Mobile Majority to rethink the design strategy and implementation for their advertising campaign web based application. As creative director for the project, I helped lead the design efforts initial direction including but not limited to color choices, iconography styles, typography and navigation structure. I worked closely with both the client and the Mossio team to help expedite user workflows including wireframes and whiteboard sketches. At the end of the project, we delivered exceptional results backed by strategic design choices that will help the Mobile Majority customer base create and managing their ad campaigns.
