Its not every day that you get to work with one of the top companies on the internet to create a brand-new app for the world’s leading smartphone. Working with eBay on their new Motors iPhone app was a dream project. The Shane&Peter team brought me onboard to help create a functional, friendly user experience and a beautiful, memorable design for this new app.
The project started with Shane and I creating wireframed screens and walkthroughs of the entire app – basically thinking through how the user would use and navigate every part of the program. After that was done I became lead designer on the project and worked to create the look and feel of the entire app. I put together a style that was a throwback to the idea of old baseball cards (one of the themes of the app), while still being very clean and modern. I paired rough textures with clean, sharp fonts and lots of contrast to create one of my favorite designs.
The app itself is packed with features. You can browse beautiful cars, save specific searches for your car, and even create your ‘garage’ which stores info and pictures about cars you own or want to own. Go ahead and download the app in the App Store, or read Shane&Peter’s announcement of the completed project.
In the end this was a great project for everyone. My client, Shane&Peter, was super happy with the way the design turned out; eBay was delighted with the app we gave them; and dozens of great customer reviews in the App Store show that the target audience is loving this work.

I can count on Brad. When he says he’s going to do something he gets it done. That accountability is probably one of the most important things I can have from someone I work with. Brad is certainly one of the most accountable people I’ve had on my team.
When you hire Brad you get his creative talent mixed with dependability and you end up with someone who is really great to work with.
The quality of his work and his professionalism (think pragmatic time management, setting expectations) are superb. He’s a seasoned freelancer and that means good things if you’re a client of a collaborator.
Brad is a pleasure to work with: professional and friendly every time. He continuously produces excellent work.
I have not known of anyone that has worked with him on a project that has not been 100% pleased with the end product but also with the process.
Brad is a joy to work with. He’s a great listener. He was able to take our vision and make the reality of our design even better! He is a design professional with an understanding of what businesses need: on time, on budget and on point. He was patient with our input, prompt with our…
Working with Apt Design is like working with a genie….”Your wish is my command!” I simply had to share my vision, and, poof, just like that, it was created! Timely, detailed, and precise.

…artistic intuition that can’t be learned, keen insight into what a project needs, the people skills to lead the creative process, the organizational skills to manage the whole undertaking, and the work ethic to get the job done when and how it should be.
Brad provided very clear and understandable (for those of us who are tech challenged) directions on the process, explaining the steps he would take to build and design the site, as well as the input he wanted from me, and the training involved once the site was complete. Brad, who has a sharp eye for design, ran with it and produced a great site. He does good work.
He has solid ideas and is willing to listen, which in turn makes him an extremely effective communicator. His ability to organize the creative and administrative side of his business sets Brad even further apart from anyone
When it came time to design my website choosing Apt design was the best decision I could have made. Apt Design is always on time with all projects and the quality of work is second to none.
Brad effectively translated my half-formed ideas into a beautiful website, and he gave me lots of choices and allowed plenty of feedback. He also did a great job making the web design flexible enough to evolve with my needs.
It was a pleasure to work with Brad at Apt Design. On the design front, his concepts were spot on, so we never got started on false trails. And he easily and accurately incorporated my feedback in a comfortable back-and-forth dialogue that resulted in a strong final product. I remain extremely pleased with the result.
Brad was quick, efficient and completely approachable about changes. Best of all, the final layout looked phenomenal.
Brad’s design work is creative and impeccable — and best of all, he listens well and asks all the right questions, with no assumptions about his clients’ experience.
Brad made the process of developing my web site not only painless, but positively enjoyable. His enthusiastic, “can-do” attitude permeated every discussion we had. I would recommend him to any writer looking to develop a web site!
Working with a new designer can be overwhelming – but through Brad’s organizational systems and resources, we were able to work through various projects in record turn-around timing. Additionally, our latest posters and designs have captured the hearts and attention of the community. We increasingly receive requests such as “how can I get one of those posters?!”
…finding Brad was the answer. He listened, researched, welcomed honest responses to drafts, adapted, educated us, stayed on deadline and delivered a first-rate creative website that continues to draw rave reviews.
Since completion we have noticed increased customer usage of our website for research and enjoy additional business from these new customers. Brad comes to you from Boswells highly recommended.
