Superconductive Health is a startup who was ready to level up their professionalism and so hired me as a hands-on strategic design partner to refresh everything as if it were my company.
Together we developed a brand mantra, mission statement, visuals, illustration style guide, tone and voice, and ultimately design and development of their website.Tags:

I started a design collective called "The Tin Roof Design Agency" because I thought it would be easier to explain an agency to clients over a collective.
However, all the work I get and continue to get is through my personal brand losmontoya.com and so TRDA never took off and one could call it a "failed project".
I don't see it that way because it helped me re-focus all my energy into building out my own brand — it's where all the work was coming from anyway. Plus, I like my own brand because I can infuse it more with who I am.
I wanted this site to have minimal color and I'm super happy with the direction that it took. I never got around to designing and/or developing a case study section, but have the ideas in my head 🤗— it's not going to happen because this business idea is caput; I'll reuse the ideas as a starting point at a later date for something else I'm sure.
Anyway, enjoy another Webflow project 🙌Tags:
I'm the Creative Director for a 'Series A" funded startup called Juxta Labs and we make the app called Mappen.
It's an app for your real social life.
The CEO asked me if I could design a more legit landing page than the one we had to help tell our narrative and also to design a section for the press. He asked if I could design it so that we could then hand it off to a contract web developer an have them build it.
I told him, I would rather design it and develop it myself using Webflow. We are a lean team and if I was able to develop and design it, I could cut out all the back-and-forth communication management I'd have to do to make sure the website turned out the way we wanted it.
After pitching him the idea, he was sold on it. He didn't know i could develop websites when I was hired because my job was to lead and manage a team of designers, help them grow in their careers, and to provide strategic direction for our business.
I showed up with the website in hand in the morning.Tags:

Heys! Landing page for Epicurrence Yosemite
Dann Petty asked Travis and me to be the keynote speakers for Epicurrence. As we were planning the keynote talk we decided to make it less about us presenting but more about the people who have stories to tell.
So we found a few spotlight speakers with a few key narratives we thought would resonate well with the Epicurrence attendees.
Instead of having a slide deck I wanted to try and design and develop the site with Webflow and have that up on the screen. We also wanted people to have access to the speakers during and after the Epicurrence Yosemite week.
Travis did the watercolors for it all and overall I was extremely happy with it.Tags:

I try to update the design of my company's landing page at the beginning of every school year.
This is the most pleased I've been with a landing page and I think it's because it's the first time I design it using Webflow.
I'm also pleased with it because it's the closest I've been able to get when trying to communicate who I am as a person — this one hits it dead center.Tags:
