Excited to announce the [soft] launch of my new side project. The Nice Kind is the product-creating arm of the studio and will focus on designs that are thoughtful and purposefully minimal. Drawing on inspiration from a handful of interests (sport, modern art, typography, philosophy), the designs will be clean, simple and classic-feeling. Graphic T's are available now. Other apparel and accessories, and art prints to follow.
Responsive web design is important but doesn't always translate to the best UX for shopping and buying products on a mobile device. With this project we were asked to concept, design and execute a custom UX that is highly-visual and tailored specifically for shopping on your phone.
