TheLoHiList was conceived as a simple-to-use job board, in contrast to many well-known competitors.

The main goal was to make the user interface as self-evident as possible, so that a user would be able to find a job with a minimum of confusion or distraction.

TheLoHiList is a Ruby on Rails application developed by Brown Beagle Software for a Denver, Colorado based client. My involvement ranged from initial design concepts, right through to providing HAML & SASS templates. Using familiar tabs to navigate filter types, building and modifying search queries is an intuitive process. The jQuery library was used to enhance interactivity and usability, providing live feedback when appropriate. I designed the logo to support an uncluttered UI design.

Inspiration

Thinking for a Living

Serious inspiration, on tap. Thinking for a Living is an online magazine for designers and other aesthetes. The main attractions for me are the thoughtfully written feature articles and the carefully curated list of links.

Pictory

Pictory is a beautifully designed and tightly curated photography showcase. The combination of large beautiful images with human stories delivers a compelling experience, not dissimilar to that of pouring over a high quality book.

SouthSouthWest

SouthSouthWest is a Melbourne based design studio responsible for putting out razor sharp work. When I need to remind myself why I love what I do, I'll visit their portfolio to see design as good as it can be.

Mash

Mash makes beautiful and surprising design for enlightened clients. Interestingly, they do a lot of wine label work, and they're amazing. All packaging should be this good!
