Welcome. My middle name is Nelson, but you can call me Robert. I make digital experiences with pixels and code. Would you like to see some selected works, learn more about me or maybe get in touch?
My latest project is was for Carnegie Hall.
Carnegie Hall needed a interactive event browser to showcase the events for their upcoming Chinese Festival. Utilizing XML and a little AS, Robert built a simple, lightweight, flexible and scalable solution. The final solution created a framework on which future Festivals can be built as well.
Design and Programming with CMS Generated XML & AS2
OfficeLinks.com required a unique interface for browsing their technologically savvy locations in New York & Chicago. The solution is a custom built CMS that allows them to easily and beautifully add new locations, with a few bells and whistles.
Citibase wanted to create a site that stood out from the industry. Something different. A brand that has decided to stand on a pedestal and shout a different message. FreedomAtWork.co.uk not only shouts that message, it introduces their location portfolio un-like any other player in the office suite space. That coupled with the brand warmth that Citibase derives from their actual clientele and this is one powerful brand presentation.
Dickinson Brands has a number of sites that need to carry the same light airy feeling throughout, yet stand alone as separate brands under the parent company. Two examples shown here are informational product sites for two of their most popular lines.
Essilor is the leading manufacturer and distributor of eyewear lenses in the United States. With such a hefty title comes a catalogue of brand sites that needed to be managed on the same CMS system. The design template lives throughout most Essilor sites and yet feels very different in each iteration.
OneSky was two guys in NH who hailed from FedEx and PriceLine. They came up with an algorithm to monetize the empty legs on private jet travel. Robert helped them visualize the process, simplifying the engine that brings this modern, Expedia-like approach to the private air industry with zest and panache.
Worktopia.com is a marketplace for un-used Meeting Rooms at Hotels throughout the world. The technology basically allows Hotels to sell their empty meeting rooms to planners and additionally offers the ability to upsell hotel room blocks for those meetings.
Robert worked with the internal Worktopia team designing the process making sure that, though the process is feature rich, the experience is simple and easy to use.
StressEraser, a digital solution to your stressful day, needed a direct to consumer website to inform and sell their ground breaking stress relieving device.
Who says' you can't be luxuriously dry? We launched a completely Flash and MySQL driven e-commerce site for BrellaBar that showcased their exceptional statement making rain diverters to the general public, and allowed them to expand their reach nationwide. *BrellaBar's entire invetory was purchased by another company later that year.
The re-emerging arch-rival of Lacoste wanted to launch an online marketplace for their clothing. We developed a site that allowed them not only the ability to sell their clothing, but also allowed them to become an authority on culture and trends in music and fashion.
Helping William Pitt integrate as the first local luxury home partner with Sotheby's International Realty led to the development of a real-estate and agent porta website that provided users with the overall brand promise, the ability to search listings, get information about local areas and to find an agent.
Sirius was looking to expand their content browsing horizons. We conceptualized several different new organizational and content connection models to entice potential subscribers to subscribe as well as provide a different and unique browsing and celebrity/artists following mechanism for existing clients.
Strategy, Conceptual and Design.
I’m very passionate about pixels.
John Maeda is a huge hero of mine. I would mop a floor for him.
ActionScript is like another language... that I speak.
Robert Redmond is a pixel master. He has been active in the creative industry since before the turn of the century, working with interactive agencies and as an award-winning Creative Director in advertising and web design & development.
He didn't go through the motions when his career began, instead he hit the ground running with design work at Nascent State in Silicon Valley designing unique experiences for the likes of The World Trade Center, Gucci Group, Schneider National and Lexmark. He jumped on the Flash bandwagon very early on wth ‘TellTarget’ and has been developing unique interfaces and design solutions ever since.
Since his early days at Nascent State he has run his own software company, worked as a Creative Director in advertising, Director of Multi-Media and Flash Development and as a strategy, user interface and brand expert. He has amassed a client list upwards of 80 brands.
With such a vast experience base he's gained integral knowledge in the luxury, real-estate, fashion, beverage, travel industries as well as practiced a wide array of applications from branding, strategy, design and promotions to logistics, architecture and development.
He sees every challenge as an opportunity to expand the minds of consumers and create breakthrough content delivery mechanisms, ultimately effecting and changing the landscape of digital media.
Robert Nelson Redmond earned his BFA from Parsons’s School of Design and is still actively pursuing his Masters in “life”. He lives in hills of the lower Hudson Valley with his equally creative costume-designer wife.
Whether you have a project you need help with, you’re looking for that next team leader, or you just want to say hi: I’d love to hear from you.
