Graphic Design | Mark Watkins

My work for a variety of clients includes marketing collateral, book cover design and production, book creation in InDesign, UI creation for the TiVo app, and lots of website design, which includes wireframes, flowcharts, sitemaps, prototypes and UI elements, as well as carts, databases and user accounts. I’ve provided project management and art direction and always collaborate well with coders and developers.

Sample Projects

Book Covers & Marketing Collateral

Case study: Books covers, flyers, adverts, banners, cards
Client: Various
Description: Using the Adobe Suite to design and produce artwork for print, from 10 foot high banners to pocket-size iCards.

Website Redesign (After | Before)

Case study: Redesigning websites
Client: Curriculum Technology
Description: The original CT2Learn website was the company’s placeholder for their educational product. The site’s generic graphics and poor device repsonsiveness did not support their business growth objectives. The 2015 redesign focused on color and graphic continuity on the page and site level, clearer navigational elements and improved mobile support.

TiVo Graphics and Wireframes

Case study: Graphics, UI prep, wireframes
Employer: TiVo
Description: Worked on two projects. First, prepared and managed graphics for the Series4 TiVo Premiere released in 2010 using Flash and second, created 50-75 wireframes for the Series5 TiVo Roamio. Both projects included developing nomenclature and defining exact positioning for all the little bits and pieces, like “fadeTop_mc”, “List Item”, “the pill”, “the BoD”, etc.

Mark has done a remarkable job for us at Curriculum Technology. We brought him in during a time we were rolling out a major new product/service initiative and while the product was good, the presentation to the market was not. His vision, creativity, skill, and work ethic were major factors in enabling us to firmly establish the new product in the marketplace, where we are still experiencing very strong year over year growth. Mark is the real deal, a consummate pro.
