My website up until now was made off a slightly altered version of a page I made for a class final in one of my intro level classes. As such, it was a bit outdated for a wide variety of reasons and after being repurposed multiple times for various things, the code was a mess and the page suffered for it.
I didn’t have the time to do it before graduation while working on finishing my studies and producing my senior project etc, but I finally am getting around to a proper redesign for professional use.
The new design reflects some of the things I liked in the old design as well as some CSS tricks I picked up throughout my studies. In place of the logo I’ve used in the past, I’ve repurposed the arrow graphic I made for use in my adapted family crest design. (representing the winding path, fir tree and branches)
In my interactive design class today the teacher, tired of having a few students doing nothing because they already understand the material, assigned me to leave the room for roughly an hour and a half and remake a wikipedia article in 960 grid system utilizing one jquery effect.
So, in an hour and a half this is what I came back to the class with, based off the article for Coffee.
Obviously there’s issues, but not bad for the time limit I think
For my moving image as object class, we got a mini-project to create a video, website, tumblr page, etc reflecting ideas of curation, as well as a deeper meaning than simply a fun internet thing.
But seriously, in the apartment of new media majors, I’m king of awesome roommates.
Update: After hours of tireless tinkering (literally, I couldn’t get things to work the way I wanted to for a while) I have the alarm functionality working so that you can put in any time and (as long as the window is open to the page of course) the page will set off the alarm to that time and play my sample mix song that I made for sound design earlier this semester. I may have to go in and make a Toasty Time 2.0 using this sort of functionality to control the toaster.
