Contrast
Apps That Stand Out
2011-2016

  • Long lasting relationship with David Barnard (@drbarnard) led to create apps that are still used everyday by millions of users.
  • I've been challenged to create original user interfaces and experiences for a wide range of apps, such as Launch Center Pro.
  • Award-winning, critically acclaimed, apps throughout the years.
  • Weather Up (né Perfect Weather) started as a project in 2012 but due to the release of iOS 7, a complete overhaul was needed.
    It ultimately shipped in September 2013 and got immediately featured by Apple.

Igloo
Community Hubs
2015-2016

  • Igloo allowed users and brands to create private or public spaces where bots, events, sales or even games could happen.

  • Project started in late 2015 but got axed in mid-2016 despite the growing interest. Also, at this time, Zenly was irresistibly growing on me.
