Party like a Slug!
The website for Party like a SLUG! is part of a larger branding project for UC Santa Cruz's party safe campaign. My goal for the website, which is to serve as the school's go-to website for information about alcohol & other drugs and safe partying, was for it to be fun and engaging and approaching.
My client, my driving instructor, approached me to create a website and brand for him and his driving school. He wanted his website to be able to offer his services to potential customers and to showcase testimonials from his former students. I designed his website to be simple and professional, which were factors that he was looking for in his new brand.
Upstream Color Grid
The extreme close-up shots and beautiful cinematography of Upstream Color inspired me to create this interactive project. The trailer for the film is split into a grid in which the user is able to drag and drop each tile while the video keeps playing. By mixing up the positions of each tile, the new picture that is produced allows for a different perspective of the shots of the trailer.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Interactive Senses
This was a final project for one of my classes. I wanted to evoke the mood of each scene from the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind by highlighting only its score and dialogue in text form.
The goal of this project was to overlay videos in a creative and interactive way. I overlaid 4 different videos that, when the user hovered the mouse over them, the background would simultaneously change. As the change was automatic, the songs would change accordingly, like a DJ would be able to remix songs.
This was my very first time coding an entire website/page from scratch. Previously, I had only tinkered here and there with tumblr, but this assignment gave me the chance to really start from the bottom up. Of course, looking back, the layout is relatively simple, but given the obscurities of digital media as a field, I think it's okay.
