I created an World of Warcraft battleground tool for the iOS to help players know when to login. By setting their realm, a player was able to see a countdown to the next ‘Wintergrasp’ battle.



Scion: Urban Mobility 2011

Posted on August 22nd, by Joseph Van Geffen in Design, Portfolio, Websites. Comments Off on Scion: Urban Mobility 2011

Current recently came to me to design a site for Scion’s Urban Mobility. Every year they create a community-based site to help inform, educate, and brainstorm urban transportation. This year the focus was on concepts and designs which address the world’s growing problems of urban sprawl and energy consumption. The site aims to provide information on projects helping communities with energy efficient transportation, fuel alternatives and innovative infrastructure.

However, Urban Mobility is more than just revolutionary ways of moving people; it is also a social cause that brings neighborhoods and communities together, reminding us that we are each a part of the global village.

Google Doodle for ‘Security Test Engineering’ Team

Posted on August 10th, by Joseph Van Geffen in Brainstorming, Design, Logos, Portfolio. Comments Off on Google Doodle for ‘Security Test Engineering’ Team

I was honored to be asked to make a Google Doodle for their internal Security Test Engineering Team. Concepts ranged wildly since the target demographic was ‘hacker’ really. Fun right?

I went with a clean G with a laptop on it with the ‘Resident Hacker’ logo (think DefCon). The first ‘o’ is a magnifying glass looking for RSA encryption holes while the second ‘o’ is a lock being picked. A jumbled pile of ethernet cables make up the second ‘g’. I went with a firewall brick concept for the ‘l’ but felt it needed a fire to create a better visual pun. So the ‘e’ is on fire hopefully representing viruses and error and ‘omg why did you download that’.

It was fun and thanks again for the opportunity!

4th and Forever Website

Posted on May 16th, by Joseph Van Geffen in Design, Portfolio, Websites. Comments Off on 4th and Forever Website

I just finished a website for the new TV show 4th and Forever. I designed and programmed the site for Current TV (www.current.com) from start to finish. The Current team was a joy to work with. By leveraging the on-air assets available to the brand we were able to create quite a beautiful site. Since the players are real people (not characters) social media was heavily incorporated.
