Hi, I'm Brendan Ciccone. 👋
Kontroller I/O - macOS App
Visual design, logo design, and brand direction.
Sketch, Sketch Cloud, Principle
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.
Due to security upgrades in macOS, the application may need to change in order to exist in the App Store.
Immertec - Scheduler App
Visual design and the creation of animated, high-fidelity mockups for all screens and user-flows.
Sketch, Sketch Cloud, Notion, Principle
I am the UI/UX designer at Immertec and was tasked with designing the mobile app for our product Medoptic. This will take 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. These are a few screens from the high-fidelity prototype that provides a variety of states and conditions, in addition to user permissions.
This project led me to discover my favorite open-source icon library called Ionicons.
Haverhill Business Portal - Website Design
Visual design, web design, and communication with the client for the whole project.
Sketch, Asana, HTML, CSS, Secret CMS
With the vision of the Greater Haverhill Foundation, I created a one-stop-shop for everything an entrepreneur needs in Haverhill, Massachusetts. The business portal efficiently gets entrepreneurs to licensing, contacts for various governmental departments, and more. View it live here.
The website is available in 10 languages on all devices and people really liked it.
"The Haverhill Business Portal is a step in the right direction towards utilizing tech to show all that Haverhill has to offer." - Rep. Andy Vargas
"The Haverhill Business Portal strikes the ideal balance for smaller local and municipal governments to emulate." - G2B
Immertec - Website Design
Visual design and the creation of animated, high-fidelity mockups for all pages.
Sketch, Sketch Cloud, Notion, Principle, GitHub, HTML, CSS
I am the UI/UX designer at Immertec and was tasked with designing our customer-facing website. I worked alongside our director of marketing who provided the copy and some design direction. The site we had before was too conservative and didn't showcase the innovative nature of what we are creating. This time around we took a very modern approach both aesthetically and with our copy. View it live here.
This site encouraged me to learn Principle better so that we could create intricate animations.
California Tacos To Go - Website Redesign
Visual design, web design, and communication with the client for the whole project.
Sketch, Asana, HTML, CSS, Secret CMS
I reached out to the head of California Tacos To Go after looking at their menu on their old non-responsive website. We discussed a modern vision for the brand moving forward so I went ahead and redesigned the website. I decided to use a card style design to make it visually interesting. View it live here.
Guy Fieri visited them because their tacos are that good.
Flychain - Landing Page Design
Visual design of mobile and desktop versions of the landing page.
I got the chance to do a responsive website redesign for Flychain, a company that is making it easy for people to get into crypto markets. They allow people with Robinhood accounts to sign in directly into their application. I utilized common themes from within the cryptocurrency industry.
I decided to experiment with the waves and the menu, taking a bit of a different approach.
My mom bought me a bass guitar when I was about 13 and I joined my first band a few months later. I eventually picked up quite a few other instruments along the way. Many bands later, I now create electronic music and produce for other artists in genres from indie to hip hop. Check out some of my music below.
For over a year now, I've been the Product Designer at Immertec, creating user interfaces for this exciting new medium. There we are creating innovative VR training technology.
My journey into product design 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 product 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.
