Hi! I'm Peter Cole, a developer/designer from the San Francisco Bay Area. I like to create innovative experiences for the web, mobile, desktop, audio/video, social networks, retail and other forms of multimedia and digital marketing.
I currently oversee front-end development for apple.com. My team worked on the launch of the Apple Watch, the iPhone 6 and 7, iPad Air 2, Macbook, Macbook Pro and many more. I championed and oversaw the mobile optimization of apple.com that started during the Sept. 2014 apple.com redesign as well as the integration of the apple store ecommerce content into the main marketing site.
Prior to Apple, I was the Director of Creative Technology for Innocean where I helped build a digital practice. With Hyundai as our largest client, we created experiences for a variety of platforms that blended video, HTML5, 3D, mobile applications, and integrations with services from Google, Facebook, Twitter and others. Before Innocean, I spent about 4 years as Technology Director for R/GA, where I worked on interactive projects for Nike, Microsoft, Verizon, HP and others. At R/GA I was involved in the design and development of new products that combined the desktop, web, mobile and social (including Nike FuelBand). Prior to R/GA, I was the Director of Creative Development for AKQA, San Francisco, where our clients included Nike, Microsoft, Xbox, Target, The Gap, Visa and others. While there, I helped Nike, Target and the Gap launch their first mobile experiences; worked on Nike's first Global website and campaign, for the Olympics; created one of the first SMS-controlled kiosks for Palm; and I always tried to push the limits of the browser for projects like Xbox 3 Halo, and Nike Presto.
In in my free time, I created LaunchBx (beta), a web-based product to help small businesses connect with their customers. It includes a real-time, in-context content management and publishing platform for mobile, desktop and social networks. I also created Groovable (in alpha), a tool for helping people collect and organize their online shopping and research.
The primary tools I use include HTML5, CSS3, JS/jQuery, PHP, MySQL, ActionScript 3, Gulp, JSON/XML; GIT/SVN; audio/video, and lots of APIs from different services (Google, Facebook, etc.)
