Star Tribune Snowman

Hands down, this is one of the most fun projects I’ve ever done. Given a snowman illustration with three different outfits, I created MANY different gifs of this snowman experiencing different types of weather. He lived at the top of StarTribune.com for a year or two before the next redesign claimed him as a victim. RIP Snowman!

Shop Minnesota

Shop Minnesota was a StarTribune.com mini-site for several years. The idea was to provide an online marketplace for local retailers—especially small businesses that couldn’t afford custom website development at that time.

I worked with a product manager to produce original content for Shop Minnesota’s homepage, including these Mother’s Day and Father’s Day themes.

My role: photography, design, and coding. Click the image to see a larger screenshot.
