I'm rebuilding this site right now. So a lot of things may look broken. But what better motivation for me to finish it?

Woodshed Tea

I’ve watched a lot of my friends and mentors over the years start companies. But I never really had the entrepreneurial itch. I figured someday I might start a design studio of my own. But if you told me a year ago I’d have been helping to start a tea company I would have told Woodshed Tea

Notes from UX Advantage

I had the opportunity to attend UX Advantage (put on by Jared Spool of UIE) last year, and I forgot to write about what I learned. This is what I wrote down. I’ll write more soon on what I learned and how it has affected my work the past few months. This is just rapid-fire notes transcribed from my notebook at Notes from UX Advantage

New Ad Format on TNW

The Next Web redesigned their site recently and introduced a new full-page intro ad format. This is actually quite a beautiful animation and design on the ad itself, but this model feels like the content is the new annoying banner ad, bouncing on the edge of the screen. I actually clicked on the first ad I New Ad Format on TNW

Blog Posts About Google’s Material Design

I’m really interested in Google’s new Material Design concept. Makes me want to try an Android phone when my upgrade comes along. Especially after all of Jesse‘s HTC cheering (and design work). I’ve read a couple interesting posts from design heroes of mine on the subject that you should check out. I’ll add more on Blog Posts About Google’s Material Design

First (Certainly Not Last) Experience Creating Custom Icon Fonts

I try to use the most flexible formats as I can in my work. That means spending a little more time up-front creating assets that are scalable and editable, so I don’t need to recreate the wheel every time a size changes or we need a hover state for something. Sometimes that means extra CSS. First (Certainly Not Last) Experience Creating Custom Icon Fonts

Frank Chimero’s New Website and Owning Your Content

Before reading, go check out frankchimero.com. I won’t feel bad if you don’t come back. It doesn’t have his portfolio there yet. But it has so much else to explore that explains his process and influences. It’s got a few elements I’ve toyed with on this site, like links and quotes. But I love the Frank Chimero’s New Website and Owning Your Content

Oklahoma Rock

OklahomaRock.com just got a major upgrade thanks to Ty of iThemes Creative Services. Ty did all the site design and development, and I helped out with a new logo. I’ve kept up with OklahomaRock.com for a long time on their old site. So it’s awesome to see their new site with a lot of awesome Oklahoma Rock

The Redesign of iThemes.com

I’ve worked for iThemes since January 2010. Since I started working here, I’ve been making updates to our site – designing sidebar ads, new sales pages, adding custom post types for our content and products, and making little tweaks everywhere. But after 2 years of piling more and more into the old theme, we knew The Redesign of iThemes.com

Our Wedding

Around 9pm on June 30, 2012 I married Sherree Jane Chamberlain on the rooftop of the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. We led everyone to believe that we had been married earlier that night in a private ceremony before the reception. After we had some time to say hi to friends and family at the Our Wedding

I’m Getting Married This Weekend

Remember that Sherree Chamberlain girl I’ve blogged about here, here and here? Well I’m going to marry her on Saturday. I’m pretty excited about it. But I’m also pretty busy writing letters, wrapping things, printing things, and general wedding prep madness right now, so you’ll have to check out the wedding site I made for I’m Getting Married This Weekend
