Cavendish Square Digital

Art direction and UI

I was tasked with modernizing the browse experience for the Marshall Cavendish databases, a massive (and growing) collection of reference titles.

My approach for the homepage browse was to create a grid of thumbnail images for each title with a preview and link on click/touch.

A recent review of Cavendish Square Digital from School Library Journal:

"Think of CSD as a treasure chest…Students with a variety of learning styles will be able to access CSD effortlessly...The full-color images and clean layout make the new interface not only attractive but accessible…VERDICT: CSD is the standard by which other encyclopedia-style databases should be judged. CSD has style and substance: Steve Jobs and Tim Gunn would be proud."

Core Concepts Science Databases

Art direction and interface design for Rosen Digital's award-winning science databases: Biology, Chemistry and the Periodic Table.

Working closely with our developers and editors, I helped transform our existing database platform with a cleaner, more modern interface. I created static mockups in Photoshop for approval, and reskinned the HTML/CSS for launch.
