Rocket Raise – SMS App

In late 2012 I had the opportunity to help launch a new messaging app called Rocket Raise. Working with a close friend from college, we saw the huge growth of mobile messaging and realized the great potential it offered for organizations seeking to engage a large audience. The two of us began working day and night to build an app that would turn a daily habit like texting into support for a good cause. In the summer of 2013, Rocket Raise was accepted into the Jumpstart Foundry business incubator in Nashville, TN; here we continued to refine our product and were able to launch the app by mid August.

During production, one of my many responsibilities included being the sole designer. During our 3 months at Jumpstart, I built the following: Rocket Raise user interface, company website, logo, instructional materials, a 45-slide pitch deck, and various other marketing materials. While it was certainly a busy couple months, it was one of the most enjoyable projects I’ve ever worked on. A few weeks later I began working on the Intro Video below. I am very excited to see where this goes.
