Found Objects of Industry

Website for architectural salvage pioneer Lenny Schlechter. This website was done in 2012 and it's user experience and design can still hold to today. I consistently try to design with time and life of the asset in mind, especially for clients that do not necessarily intent to refresh as much as trend and technology advances; I am able to give the most "bang for their buck" as well as having something to show that stands the test of time. I like to work on projects that interest me. I have been a long time collector and admirer of industrial design. I like history and things. I am also a bit of a hoarded.

about me

I’m Justin and Lifefroots is my portfolio.

"Why 'lifefroots'?" Well...justinwagner.com was taken. It was an attempt to play on either the 'fruits of my life' or 'my life roots'. I thought it might linger in mind longer than any other thought I had at the time. It was fine for the time being and it just stuck over the years.

It all started with video...I spent my childhood filming and editing BMX videos of my friends and I. That led me to my degrees in video and photographic studies. From there, I fell into working on the web. I am a collector and a completest at heart, so I decided that I needed to learn how to code. I learned HTML,CSS,JS,PHP and worked as a lead front-end dev for a few years. Again as a completist, I moved from web, to interface, then to a focus on the experience. I'm currently working as the ACD of Video and UX at Toll Brothers leading all interactive, digital, and video content.

Aside from design, I also love bicycles, tech (part fanboy/part audiophile), history, junk, and anything vintage.

Thanks for the time, and I hope you found something interesting here. If so, want to create something special together?

This site was designed on a using and built with utilizing javascript, css, and .
