Hi, I'm Brendan Ciccone. 👋
Kontroller I/O - macOS App
So Kontroller I/O is an application I've been working on for fun lately. It's a macOS app that would enable and disable your camera, speakers, and microphone at the system level. While there are some tools similar out there for speaker control, I felt there could be a centralized control system for all three.
There have been quite a few hurdles though and it will likely be some time before I get closer to a release.
This is some of the UI I created, along with the accompanying macOS logo. It would exist primarily as a menu bar app that is out of the way, but ready when you need it. 🖥
Medoptic - Scheduler App
I've been working with Immertec for over a year now and this is the mobile app I've designed for our product Medoptic. This will take the users through a secure process to view upcoming medical training sessions and schedule them.
My first attempt ended up being filled with imbalanced colors and potentially confusing UI. I realized that in order to properly provide a functional app that served the users, I needed to reevaluate my design decisions completely.
Rather than have light colors serve this brand's blue background, I "de-saturated" the app. I wanted the brand's primary identifier to be used in a positive and actionable way throughout the mobile app. This is just a few screens from it, I designed around 30, providing a variety of states and conditions in a high-fidelity prototype.
Immertec - Website Redesign
I've been working with Immertec creating the next era of training through real-time virtual reality and augmented reality applications. This is the first redesign we've done for the website. I led the design direction for it and created it.

Haverhill Business Portal - Website
With the vision of Rep. Andy Vargas and the Greater Haverhill Foundation, I created a one-stop shop for everything an entrepreneur needs in Haverhill, Massachusetts. From licensing to contacts for various governmental departments, the business portal delivers on all fronts.

Flychain - Landing Page
I got the chance to do a redesign for Flychain, a company that is making it easy for people to get into crypto markets, especially those with Robinhood accounts already.
It's simple, but I wanted something that stood out and felt modern enough to coexist among all the other great cryptocurrency website designs out there.
For over a year now, I've been the UI/UX Designer at Immertec, creating user interfaces for this exciting new medium. There we are creating innovative VR training technology.
My journey into UI/UX first started with my interest in music. Around the time I was discovering my passion for music, I also found a love for design. As a teenager with limited financial resources, I decided to devote time to learning design tools to aid me in music. I began experimenting with Photoshop and gradually made my way into other programs like Sketch. Eventually, I found an interest in web design and later, stumbled upon UI/UX design, picking up many relevant skills and tools along the way.
Before joining the Immertec team, I spent over five years as a web designer, discovering problems and designing seamless solutions that fulfill user needs and surpass business goals. I have worked with a variety of organizations, big and small, in the fields of user interface design, user experience design, user research, web design, and marketing. My work has been featured in major publications, such as Billboard Magazine. One of my most notable projects was for the city of Haverhill, Massachusetts where I created a business portal that provides entrepreneurs with quick access to the resources they need.
Outside of Immertec, I also run and instruct the official meetup group for Sketch in Tampa Bay and of course still perform and produce music.
