Research, Design (Unused)
SitePen approached me to redesign their weblog in a style evocative of online and printed newspapers. A clever subject-based asynchronous presentation was also proposed for triaging articles on the homepage, and the website was mocked up as responsive to a wide variety of viewport sizes.
Interface Design, Implementation, PHP
In the past several years, WordPress has become more of a catch-all CMS than blogging software. I created a fork of WordPress which has been designed as a publishing platform for long-form writers. The interface was redesigned and parts were entirely rewritten to accomplish this.
iOS Icon Design
A simple icon was designed for this web application which cut up online news feeds and rearranged the phrases into new sentences, in a style similar to William S. Burroughs.
Nuit Blanche Calgary
Nuit Blanche approached me to implement a website design in a way that anyone on staff could update it. Most of the staff was very familiar with WordPress, so it was a good fit.
Vancouver Fashion Week
Vancouver Fashion Week approached me to design the website for use over all 2012 seasons. I proposed three unique presentations suitable for their photo-heavy approach. I also implemented the CSS for the selected design.
iOS Icon Design
Jonas Wisser asked me to design an icon for an app which would immediately dim an iPhone's screen to its lowest brightness, without having to fumble around in Settings — perfect for use in a low-lit environment. After a few iterations, an idealized sunset was chosen and rendered at the myriad of sizes required for iOS.
Design & WordPress Implementation
I designed and implemented the theme for my personal weblog. Posts are text-dense, and of widely varying lengths — from a few to over four thousand words.
