Americans spends $70 billion a year on plastic card payment fees, and 90% of that money goes to middlemen. We designed & built a new payments system that leverages blockchains to eliminate middlemen and put $63 billion back into the hands of businesses and people.
Security and usability are two of the biggest challenges in the cryptocurrency space. We built a hardware wallet in the form of a watch, so you can easily secure your digital assets and move crypto hand-to-hand like real cash.
The tech industry uses design patterns to maximize your screen time and control your attention, causing people to be more distracted and less focused. We made a screenless, wearable, easy button; so you can interact with your smartphone while keeping it stashed in your bag or pocket.
Technology plays a major part in our lives, yet few tech products consider your individuality. We aimed to create an apparel brand where fashion & tech converged into one lifestyle. We made wearables, LED leather jackets, shirts, and hats; promoted the products through social media, and sold directly to customers on our website.
I was living in a Colorado ski town that had two newspapers, three magazines, and no clue about online publishing. I designed, built, and edited an online magazine to bring local news into the 21st century. We reported stories first, published real time updates with Twitter, and created media around events like Winter X Games, The Food & Wine Classic, and Aspen Ideas Festival.
A friend once asked me if I knew how to build a website. That one project gave me a side hustle that evolved into a full-service technology studio. We worked with dozens of startups on strategy, design, development, and marketing; and created online and offline experiences with brands like Red Bull, Ralph Lauren, & Twitter.
