Huge Mixtape is a chatroom that I'm a part of at Huge where a small group of music-enthusiasts share tunes all day everyday. A few days before the end of the year, José Gasparian (@zefelipe) and I had the idea to create a site that wraps up our favorite releases of the year. Fast forward a few days and we had created (José mostly leading the design, myself handling most of the code) a site that expanded to collect album choices from Huge employees around the world in an office-wide poll. The site immediately took off, accumulating upwards of 35,000 page views and making its way to both the #1 & #2 spots of Muzli. Check out the site at mixtape.hugeinc.com.
Showing just code.
A code experiment counting down from 9 to 0 using the same 10 dots to create each digit (some numbers fudge this a bit by overlaying dots). I built this using mostly just css, with js being used to trigger class changes on keystrokes. Play around with the page by smashing around on your number keys: open countdown
For the first 365 days after graduating from Penn State, I shot one second of footage. Each second represents a visual diary entry of the day, allowing me to remember with fairly high detail my first year out of school (and also serving as nice cinematography practice!). The final video spans Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York, California, Utah, New Zealand, & the Turks/Caicos Islands. Check out the video alongside a years worth of photos and gifs at seconds.cblls.com.
The Follies is the Penn State senior design class' take on the annual "Film Follies", a showcase of our short film projects from throughout the year. My classmates and I conceptualized, branded, filmed, and held a 300 person event and after-party: all centered around the idea of us being one large, highly dysfunctional family centered around our father figure, Lanny (which is very close to the truth, give or take a few decades of style). I also designed and built the promo website, go on a scroll.
How many faces can you recognize? This poster and promotional website depicts eighty musicians who perform wearing masks or face paint. Masked Musicians are not limited to any single genre, including acts such as Daft Punk, Kiss, Pussy Riot, and Slipknot. The poster is paired alongside a See promo website, where the poster was originally available for purchase (probably not for sale anymore, don't buy one unless you want to donate money to a good cause!).
Headcase: Normal Is Not Our Type is Penn State's Graphic Design Class of 2014's internship show; a presentation of our summer internship experiences across the country. All of the digital production was handled by Eric and myself. This included art direction, web design/development, three teaser videos, intro video, 16 personalized transitions, outro video, and a blooper reel- on top of my own video about my summer designing for internationally famous musicians at The Uprising Creative. Take a look at our promo site.
