Freelance and fun
We took a family vacation to Italy right before the pandemic hit. I initially made a Sketch file to visualize our trip planning calendar, that eventually turned into a website itinerary that I could reference from my phone throughout our trip.Check it out
I did the same thing, but less complicated (and not at all finished) for our trip to Ireland in 2022. I eventually turned this one into a monster Google doc instead of the website. But it was fun to play with.Check it out

My friends and I got into Formula 1 racing the past few years because of the Drive to Survive Netflix show. We started our own fantasy draft, because we hated the official F1 fantasy site. So I built us a simple site to track our stats. And yes, I'm losing. If you're into F1, you'll get the title. Logo by last year's league winner Scott Hill.BoxBoxBox.racing
I worked on the visual design for a Bible Study app called WordGo. I collaborated on this with the guys at Future Haus, who did the wireframes and the development. I brought the wireframes to life visually and helped troubleshoot some of the interactions and navigation concepts with their team.
I worked on the visual design for an app and website resource for new moms called MomCircle. I collaborated on this with the guys at Future Haus, who did the wireframes and the development.
Selling our house
I made a website for selling our house a few years ago. We knew the realtor pictures wouldn't do it justice, so we had my sister some take some photos and made this site to share on social media. We sold it the first weekend. I'd like to give credit to the website, but my wife's an interior designer, so she did the real work here.Check it out
I often build little prototypes or experiments, whatever you want to call them. Bringing a visual idea to life in the browser is so satisfying. I'll try to update this over time with more clips of these experiments. This first one was inspired by a guitar pedal I want to buy. I had an idea for an interactive pedal feature walkthrough. I played around with some CSS filter effects to make it look like the lights were flickering, or an old TV shorting out. Maybe I'll polish it up a bit more and pitch it to the guys at OBNE.
In the weeks leading up to our kids being born, I made them both simple little websites. I reserved their domains once we decided on their names, and couldn't just leave them blank. Henry's has a color theme switcher at the bottom. And Goldie's has a cool effect when you hover over any text. The letters are activated in a path where you hover, and loop through their animation indefinitely.HenryUlrich.com
Here's a little inception moment for you. I've been updating this site for years. I wrote a little more about it here.
