Hi there 👋🏻 My name is Robert Heath, but my friends just call me Rob.
I'm a Senior Visual Designer working at LendingTree while living in Philadelphia, PA with my wife, Alex. I specialize in UX/UI design, front-end development, 3D illustrations, and product animation prototyping.
I was born and raised in Bucks County, PA. I love going to the movies, playing narrative driven games, cycling, designing, and creating art in various mediums.
The posts below are fully documented write ups of recent work that showcases my design abilities, however this is hardly a representation to amount of work I've done. If you want to see more samples of my work you should check out my Dribbble profile to see quick shots of what I've been working.
3D illustrated posters that represent the 6 core principles held by LendingTree.
A site based rebrand with improved cart UX, chat integration, and custom iconography.
A collection of SEM / SEO landing pages I designed for Hulu to A/B test their IP focused marketing pages.
Complete site UX/UI design for a custom superhero movie wiki.
An exploration into creating an original 3D character illustration based on the hottest pepper ever.
I got my start in design in 2005, working full-time as a pre-press operator and graphic designer for a small print shop in Tarpon Springs, Florida. I left that job in 2007 to pursue more digitally focused opportunities and it was around this time I was introduced to front-end development. Since then I have primarily focused my career in the web design and development field. I still occasionally take on the odd print project.
I am also capable with video directing and production, but web design and development is where my strengths and interest primarily lie.In the last 5 years I've made a push to be a lot more involved in the UX side of web development. I found I have a knack for optimizing user experience flows and being able to find the user pain points in existing sites.Today I work as a Senior Visual Designer at LendingTree, mostly focusing on our more product-focused projects such as offer pages and form flows.
