Co-Founder & UX Architect
With over 15 years in the web design/interactive industry and a wide range of local and national clients including Harvard University, Northeastern University, Cricket Lighters, MIT, and Marie Claire, my team and I have the knowledge and experience provide the top notch interactive solutions you deserve.
Our goals are simple; create forward-thinking work and build strong partnerships with you, our clients.
Every website must tell your story, while converting strangers into prospects. With our team of strategists, designers, and developers, we are ready to help your next project succeed. With constant communication, you will feel as if we are working side by side.
With over 15 years of interactive design experience, I will personally be your first point of contact for all your design and development needs.
Whether you're looking to start a new website, application (web/mobile), UX/UI project, marketing campaign, branding, or you just want to increase your online footprint, we have the right solution for you. Contact me today at email@example.com.
Kickstarting projects on time and within budget was always (and still is) my top priority. As a main contact for clients interested in new websites, applications (web/mobile), marketing campaigns, and branding, my diverse responsibilities included: User Experience strategy, Interactive Direction, Account Management, Marketing, and Solution Provider.
In late 2010, I took a brief hiatus from the agency world to partner with well known Boston start up PerkStreet as their interactive director, working closely with the marketing, development and data analysis teams.
With the marketing team, we rapidly produced marketing campaigns to increase customer acquisition. Additionally, we created brand continuity, implementing full documentation for brand use and guidelines.
With the data analysis team, we focused on improving the content flow of the main website. Our efforts decreased customer service calls and increased client acquisition.
With the development team, we were tasked with executing marketing initiatives. We held daily brainstorming sessions to develop campaigns, flesh out new ideas, etc. I would then refine these ideas and turn them into website, branding, social media landing page and email newsletter campaigns.
While I returned to BlueLuna in April, 2011, I continued my relationship with PerkStreet until the company dissolved in September, 2013.
Michael Austin Productions was a small group of designers and developers working across multiple disciplines. Within our first year, we successfully launched several social media campaigns, mobile applications, social networks, marketing websites and animations.
In 2009, Michael Austin Productions merged with BlueLuna to provide a wider range of service offerings to our clients.
Since 1997, the Web Marketing Association's annual WebAward Competition has been setting the standard of excellence for Website development. Independent expert judges from around the world review sites in 96 industries. The best are recognized with a WebAward which helps interactive professionals promote themselves, their companies, and their best work to the outside world. The WebAward Competition is the premier award recognition program for Web developers and marketers worldwide. WebAward, the first being in 2007. The Top Agency Award is given to recognize the consistently outstanding development going on at interactive firms.
