Hi, I’m Mike Brennan, how are you? I’m a Creative through and through. It’s what gets be out of bed and excited about the day. As Creative Director at Bindable™, I manage the branding, User Experience and Front-End Development of multiple brands across different demographics and products. I’ve got over 15 years of experince in internet making and I can’t imagine doing anything else.

But, enough about all that, let’s get into the work, you can learn more about the professional junk on LinkedIn.


Branding

I wouldn’t say it’s the strongest part of my game, but I do enjoy branding and logo creation. Most of the work below are rebrands or updates to existing logo types.


Web Design

Now we're getting into the fun stuff. When I stared my career, I was convinced I was going to be a print designer and work for a magazine doing spreads and layout. The web didn't really interest me at that point, it was too rigid and didn't offer the flexibility of print at the time. Fortunately for me, I ended up interning for a tech company in the start of the "table-less" renaissance (think about that statement for a minute), and once I saw what I could do with CSS and transparent PNG's I was hooked on the web. The rest of the growth is below to behold. All the images click through to the actual live URL's so you can see the work first hand.


UXD

User Experience Design is where the bulk of my focus has been recently. I really enjoy the challenge of making complicated forms and enrollment processes as easy on the user as possible. Most of my experience in this area of design has come in the insurance space, which provides plenty of challenging UX elements.


Front-End Dev

I really enjoy being able to make what I design. I don't think I could work in a job where I could only do design or code. Being a coder gives me good insight when I'm designing something because I'm constantly thinking and chanllenging myself with how I'll be able to code a particular design. Examples? Everything presented above was also coded by this guy. HTML, CSS (SASS) and display level JavaScript (JQuery). Some of it (including this site) on a scratch built UI framework I built called Hindenburg.

So go ahead and poke around in the source code.
