Every so often I write a post here about what I’ve been working on in my 9-5 life. Sometimes a project comes along that particularly stands out in my mind. Some of you may know that I left my old job at Summit shortly after finishing the largest project I’ve ever been a part of, which led to some time off in between jobs before starting with StruckAxiom in June.
Officially today at StruckAxiom we’ve launched a site for quite possibly the hardest client to satisfy, ourselves. StruckAxiom.com has gone live and I’m extremely excited about the new branding (developed after Struck merged with Axiom) and the new site. Working at Struck so far has been challenging and exciting in terms of the ability to push into new areas and curiosities, and I’m very happy to be a part of it.
As for the future, besides working for a top-notch agency, I’ve got more ventures than ever, including a lot of rethinking of my own blog and website (new designs coming soon) and the collaborative site, blog, and life that Laura and I are beginning. Trying to find a way to fit it all in, including another trip to Europe on Sunday.
Tonight we launched NikeGolf.com, a full site redesign for US, Canada, and Europe. I’m proud of our team and the countless hours that were put in. There were some incredible obstacles we overcame and this is the largest project I’ve ever been a part of, spanning at least two years of planning and five months of all-out design and development phase, which could easily have lasted a year by itself. I led the Flash Development team on this project and I’m very happy with how it has turned out and I’m glad I’ll now have a chance to catch up on sleep, friendships, and books. See the site here: http://www.nikegolf.com (officially live at midnight PST, March 1, 2010)
Sorry Windows users, this is just too good to pass up. (via)
I do love good math humor, or perhaps I should say, OOP humor. To those of you who don’t understand C++ or OOP, I am sorry, but just know that this is a 10 on the 1-10 funny scale.
Last week at work we finally launched a site on which I’ve been working on off and on for about three months. The site is a hybrid site for the new shoe company END Footwear. The homepage Flash piece includes a wall of selectable video clips rendered in 3D space using Papervision3D. It was a very fun project to work on, and I’d love it if you all gave it at least a quick glance. :) www.endfootwear.com
And if you’re interested in additional technical descriptions of the site build, also check the post at the Summit Projects Flash Blog here.
Two of the Flash developers from Summit made it down to San Francisco over the weekend for a Flash conference called FlashCamp. In our geek world, free software is the equivalent of Christmas for a six year old.
Exactly what this Monday needed.
