In 2016 I had the opportunity to pursue a post-baccalaureate certificate in Interactive Design and Marketing from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design. When I was in high school, I had taken a basic web design course but found that the technology of the late 90's was incapable of creating the designs and interactions I envisioned. Now, I'm up-to-date on some of the web's coding and scripting languages, and I have been practicing and experimenting with them in various web design and development projects. In each one I challenged myself to learn a new technique or technology in order to implement a feature unique to the site.
A volunteer project where I organized, managed, and designed a fanzine celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Yoroiden Samurai Troopers anime. I used a variety of technologies to support and promote the project, and I worked with fans from around the world.
The site features a fixed navigation that, on a mobile device, will automatically close when the user makes a selection. The fanzine is 92 pages of art, prose, and cosplay photos generously donated by fans.
Final project for my Wordpress and PHP Web Development course. I was inspired by the Pokémon video games' Pokédex interface and wanted to mimic it in a custom Wordpress theme that could be used for a catalogue or encyclopedia.
The final site consists of a static landing page with an animated background, two custom pages, and a custom post.
Final project for my Responsive Web Design course. I chose to independently explore redesigning the website of one of my favorite restaurants to improve its branding, readability, and appeal.
The final site consists of five mobile-friendly pages that leverage CSS Flexbox to manage the layout of the meal choices.
