Fluid — Various Websites
Description
I spent 3 years at Fluid as a Visual Designer and Creative Director. During that time, I designed websites for The North Face, Timberland, RBK Custom, JanSport, Charles Schwab, and many more. I collaborated with Interaction Designers, other Visual Designers, Developers, Project Managers, and Client Stakeholders to create beautiful, end-to-end e-commerce solutions that pushed the limits of what was technically possible at the time.
Responsibilities
I was originally hired as a freelance designer and front-end web developer. After just a few months, I moved into a full-time visual design role and spent most of my time maintaining thenorthface.com. Within a year I took over as Creative Director and played a more hands on role with the client and led the design direction for both the The North Face and JanSport websites. Later, I also took on creative direction for timberland.com and lead the design for Reebok's custom shoe designer aptly named RBK Custom.
