Penny Dreadful was an idea pitched while I was at Mekanism for the Showtime Series Penny Dreadful. We had no assets, very little information, and two main things to go on: Monsters of Literature and Victorian London.
With those things in mind, we created The Penny Reader - A digital hub for all things Penny Dreadful that would pull in a user's facebook information and use it to populate a creepy, personalized paper.
Part of the Penny Reader was a few microsites that would tie loosely into the show's characters without giving too much away - The one I designed was called "Sell Your Body to Science", which used shady Victorian Pseudoscience to determine a person's physical worth, with the assumption being that they would be sold to Dr. Frankenstein for this price upon their demise.
Not a pitch we won, but a fun one to design!
Pitch work while I was at Mekanism to design a modular landing page for people who were attending live tapings of the Today show.
The briefs heavily emphasized warmth and light, which we used to guide our designs in these proposed solutions.
A proposed homepage design for Quirky, a crowdsourced invention platform.
We wanted to emphasize the two main purposes of the site: To buy products or contribute to their invention.
