BigBig Bomb

2011 - 2014

Co-founding a boutique digital agency



In 2011 I was ready for something new. Something challenging. Something I had never done before. When my colleague and friend, Brian Romanko, asked me to partner with him to form a new venture, I excitedly said yes.

We drew upon our collective experience working at agencies like frog and thirteen23, aligned on a mission to make things that excited and engaged us, and formed BigBig Bomb.




Our elite team of four specialized in iOS design and development for start-ups and small companies. We created seven new award-winning products from our own ideas and for our clients’ visions, as well as a radical new ride-sharing startup acquired by a Silicon Valley competitor. All in less than four years.

Tastevin

On-premise wine, liquor, and beer sales in the form of a subscription-based service for restaurants with customizable branding and real-time order inventory management.

Tastevin was our first big project and an opportunity to take an idea from inception to reality. We designed and implemented a custom back-end system to manage not only one of the largest beverage databases in the world, but also allow clients to administrate the unique needs of their restaurants.

At the same time we designed and implemented a flexible iOS application that could meet the real-time wine list needs of the dynamic restaurant industry.

StackTrace

Design

In addition to working with clients, one of the goals of BigBig Bomb was to make our own products.

StackTrace was our first effort. We designed and built an iOS reader for the popular learning site, StackExchange.

Outbox


Outbox sought to disrupt the mail industry by offering people a digital-first mail box. We helped them create a design language for their application, and then provided them with the initial iOS prototypes.

Whole Foods

Design

We worked with Whole Foods to design and implement their market explorer application. The goal of this project was to provide consumers with an engaging way to learn more about the foods they were buying and consuming.
