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

Thanks for dropping by! I’m Justin and Lifefroots is my portfolio.

"Why 'lifefroots'?" Well... justinwagner.com was taken. From there I thought it was a play on either the 'fruits of my life' or 'my life roots'. I thought this might linger in someone's 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. Getting that out of the way, my passion for design is most likely the reason you are here. If so, that's great, because it's a large part of who I am.

It all started with video...I had spent my childhood filming and editing BMX videos of my friends and I. That led me to my double major 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 which then led me to focus on the importance of overall user experience. After checking all of those boxes, I returned to design and its role in the overall customer's experience. I am currently working as the Senior Art Director at Toll Brothers leading all interactive, digital, and video content.

Aside from brand and clean code, I love bicycles, my cats, technology (part-fanboy part audiophile), history, and anything vintage.

Thank you for your time, and I hope you found at least something interesting here. Now let’s create something special together.
