What an honor to work as a Google Doodler. And talk about a fun, dynamic, and creative group! I was responsible for pitching, sketching, designing, and otherwise crafting doodles for the Google homepage. Lots of brainstorming, collaboration, and game / interactivity concept work.
I spent nine months on-site, four months as a freelancer.
This tribute to legendary theremin performer Clara Rockmore features a tutorial mode and a fully playable, customizable virtual instrument.
It was a huge honor to contribute to this interactive doodle as illustrator and animator. Big thanks to my teammates for their awesome work!
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.

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.
