My name is Todd K. Christensen.
And I design things.
I'm not trying to be a tough guy.
But I like the idea of simple, unpadded, direct design that can punch it's
weight. I'm confident given a little road-work and some time in the ring
we can get your project in fighting shape. NOTE: Now that I am officially
rolled into Q&A I
will likely only include side projects, labors of love, and freelance on this
How about some tunes?
out the code to this nifty MP3 player. So I thought I'd test it out. I
hope you like our playlist.
November 2007. Kaufman Kampe
This project was designed and produced by me as
a part of Q&A and mS.Quesinberry of Q&A did all the art direction and the
identity and branding work.
September 2007. Ducca.
In conjunction with Q&A
Design we several projects were completed. including this web
and identity materials job for the San Francisco restaurant Ducca.
The incredible interiors were designed by long time partners of Q&A, The
Puccini Group. If you're in San Francisco make sure you check out the
pattio bar at Ducca.
Monday, July 30, 2007. Quesinberry
and Associates is back .
Wendy Quesinberry and I are joining super forces again to reform Q&A Design.
Wendy and I worked together from 2002 to 2006. She has sold her partnership
at Golden Lasso to take on exciting new challenges, the least of which
will be working with me. Though we don't have our web
yet, we DO have an office (currently getting IT ready) and we have lots
of eager clients. Do not fear! Bare Knuckle
Design will still be in operation for all my current clients.
New clients will be brought in as Quesinberry and Associates and will now
get the expert attention of Ms. Quesinberry— Creative Director and Strategist
Extraordinary! I will keep BKD going to service my special projects and
freelance work. This site may also serve as a professional and personal
blog eventually. It will still be worth visiting. UPDATE: Server and
production up and running. Website under construction.
Northwest Jiu Jitsu Academy.
A labor of love for Brazilian
Jiu Jitsu black-belt coach Brian Johnson. A fantastic coach, a good friend,
and a beautiful art. If you want to learn some ass-kick'n moves... go see
my friend Brain Johnson at NWJJA. You won't get sand kicked in your face
again. A very basic CSS site. (New photos and blog section pending).
in production: Cardiac Science.
Just finished the design and
gained approval for this nifty UI destined for sales presentations for a
medical technology company, Cardiac Science (formerly Burdick and Quinton
Cardiology). It will be an exciting hybrid of Flash, CSS, and XHTML and we
will wrap it up in early February. Another great project with Wendy Quesinberry
and the folks at Golden
Flying Machine Development required some comps for a important communication
and internet client, Telus, who wanted to create an assessment tool for
their Mobile users. The tool will assess users needs through a survey
and Flash presentation and then recommend solutions that their other customers
have found successful. It's a great idea. FMD will be handing all the back-end,
Action Scripting, and Flash work. Finding the balance between a good UI
and an established brand, a new brand yet to debut, and matching the design
of another agency, were the tricks on this one.
Secret & still in production. Metabeam
In conjunction with our pals at Flying
Machine Development I have been doing
lots of UI/Product UI work for these Meta guys this year. All sorts of
things. And I can't tell you much because it's all super secret. But this
is one simple web UI design we completed a ways back and it's up and it
won't let the cat out of the bag. Ssssssssh. I wish I could say more.
In conjunction with Flying
machine Development and Hornall Anderson, I got a chance to design some
brand specific graphical facelifts for an updated TeraCloud product called
TeraCloud Storage Framework Express. This was a facelift to the home page
and a call to action on specific pages. FMD integrated the Flash, back-end,
and was in charge of expanding the on-line licensing and purchasing process.
The product is set to debut in late March.
CEO Summit 2007
Working again with our friends from Flying
Machine Development. UI design for the annual CEO Summit Intranet. This
Summit is attended by all the big wigs at Microsoft and other corporations.
The design is nothing fancy but it is an illustration of following the
new Vista MS brand and a the intuitive linear UI standard Microsoft utilizes.
As usual FMD handles all the hard stuff on this one.
