Google Doodles

As a Google Doodler I was responsible for pitching, sketching, and painting doodles for the Google homepage. It was great working with such a fun and creative group! I learned a lot about games and interactivity, editorial illustration, visual clarity at small sizes, and collaboration with multiple stakeholders. I spent nine months on-site, and four months as a freelancer.

It was a huge honor to contribute to this interactive doodle as illustrator and animator. Big thanks to my teammates for their awesome work!

Holidays 2015

This three-day series of folded-paper doodles culminated in a big payoff for users, who could watch as the complexity increased from simple folded characters to a lush holiday scene.

An added challenge was making sure these designs were successful as both flat doodles and 3-dimensional shapes.

National Days

Celebratory doodles commemorating each country with a national monument, animal, flower, food, building, or symbol.

With so many countries to design for, I needed work within a consistent format that could limit the scope of each project while still preserving a hand-made charm and a huge variety of flag patterns and illustration solutions.
