Hey, I'm Travis Howell — AKA Creative Grenade, a designer who works with the gaming & tech industry pushing creative boundaries & designs unique user experiences. Let's chat!
If you're looking for a designer who will help you to build your digital web presence & brand, you've found them!
In our online world, the quality of your website says a lot about your team or product. Whether you need a simple landing page or a fully developed product, I can design & plan user flows, interaction design, style guide, personas, wireframes, to fully mocked prototypes.
Depending on your needs, I can also work with no-code platforms like Webflow & Bubble to get your website live with pixel-perfect design and UX.
As an entrepreneur myself, figuring out which threads to pull & what matters most are tasks I'm very familiar with. From brand new startups with no digital presence to established brands who need a new direction, I can help.
I've supported several businesses & partners in gaming & tech define and pursue their creative goals. If you're stuck & not sure how to develop your brand or where to start, I can bring my years of experience to the table.
Your logo is the first impression people will have about you or your business & it's important to me that those impressions are amazing.
I love all types of logo design styles & depending on your goals, we can work on finding the right style for you whether it be focused on typography, an icon, a sporty mascot, or a giant squid driving a race car with flame decals on the sides.
Over the years, I've had the pleasure of designing brands & experiences for hundreds of streamers, gaming orgs, and products. Here's a small selection of some of my favorites.
Over the last decade, I've learned that this process works for all my clients, regardless of budget or project type.
First, we need to define the goals of your project and uncover any unknowns. We'll discuss the project and identify all the key attributes to apply during design.
This is the fun part! I'll explore various avenues to approach the defined problem and apply my years of experience into the projects creative direction.
When you work with me, you always receive all source files required from the .SVG of a logo to the Figma files for your entire product design.
I love solving problems for users and crafting experiences that others can enjoy. It’s challenging yet rewarding to think through so many scenarios and user flows, balancing technical constraints with product goals, and then finally seeing real people get real value out of the final product.
If you choose to work with me, you're getting more than a designer. You're getting years of UI/UX and product experience in both agency and startup environments. I've also launched my own startups so I'm familiar with many of the very same problems and questions you currently face.
Don't just take my word for it. Here are some kind words from people I've had the pleasure of working with.
"The designs Travis sent were as if he could peer into my mind and put them into digital form... but better. His attention to detail and polish are what make him our first choice for any UI/UX projects we embark on."
"I started hiring Trav for professional logo and web design projects, and he exceeded my expectations with every deliverable. Whenever I have a new project, I refuse to consider any other designer, even if he's booked for the next three months, because Trav doesn't waste my time or money. "
"I've been working with Trav going on 6+ years now. He's designed so many incredible branding projects of mine and is always my go-to to work with. He's such a diverse designer. He's always able to deliver on the vision I'm looking for, and often times even better than what I was hoping for. Can't thank him enough honestly."
