Palm

Mobile Operating System - Visual Design, Icon Illustration

Palm was once at the forefront of handheld computing technology, seen in their PDA's and the introduction of the first smartphone, the Treo. WebOS was designed to retain Palm's legacy while returning them to their former relevancy. In short, it's the same old tunes on a brand new stereo.

Sony

Tablet Application - Visual Design

"Reader" is a document viewing application designed specifically for Sony's Android tablets. I worked on the Tablet S (V1) and Xperia Tablet S(V2) version of Reader. Due to project constraints, we maintained a lot of the previous visual language for V1. For V2, we decided to push the visual style to be more in line with the rest of the Tablet UI.
