TCX Conference Identity

TCX is Cru's annual winter conference in Minneapolis. Over 1000 college students come from Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota to experience four days of worship, learning, and serving the community.

Graphics needed for the event include promotional postcards, signage, program books, nametags, and a website. The identity was also recently rehauled and needed new brand guidelines.

Reroute Map Service

"What if your road trip wasn’t about points A and B? What if vacations began with the journey and not with the journey’s end?"

Reroute is a creation inspired by a love for the road less traveled. With this mapping program, you choose where you want to begin and end, along with other preferences, and Reroute then creates an out-of-the-way route that avoides the big highways and favors the back roads.

close Redesign

The National Theater for Children (NTC) travels to schools performing educational plays on topics like water conservation and electricity use. was originally where teachers would fill out a survey following the performance, but NTC’s goal was to expand the audience and use of the site to students and parents.

Working in a team of four, I researched NTC, its competition and target audience. We then presented the clients with a proposal, created site wireframes, designed page mockups, developed the site, and performed a series of user tests to make sure we’d reached our goals.

Tools used: Adobe Illustrator CS5, Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, HTML/CSS, JQuery

Teachers are sent to a redesigned survey page and then to the teacher page with photos, activities, and discussions unique to their show. Parents and students are also taken to sites targeted to their interests and needs.
