I’ve spent most of the year at work making iOS games/apps – and after almost a year of work, Go Padda has been released! Go Padda is a physics slider game in which you race down hills to collect flies and gain speed to fly over the landscape. Touching the screen hunkers Padda down to his leaf so he’s more aerodynamic for the downhills – but slows his climb on the uphills, so (more…)
The summer has been quiet and at times I’ve had a little time to doodle. I ♥ the Cintiq. If they weren’t like the cost of a new laptop or double, I would get one for use at home. *drool* (more…)
Since most people not in the industry have so little to do with making websites, and I’ve gotten some good questions about what exactly I do to make ones like in my portfolio, I thought it would be a good thing to make into a blog post!
The steps most web designers I’ve met go through with a client are as follows: (more…)
Back in December, my boss at StormFrog came to the design team with another little development project he had cooked up (if you remember Twake). This one was for a mobile developer’s tool which would force end-users to update their apps, without the developer having to write their own code to do such a thing. We had a long brainstorming session with some key people, and eventually (more…)
Here at StormFrog we’ve been working for months to design and develop an awesome new website for the Southern California Mexican supermarket chain Northgate Gonzáles Markets. The chain has a major presence around San Diego and Los Angeles, but their website look was lacking the love appropriate to a chain their size. See: (more…)
One of my coworkers is involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through a friend who has the disorder. She does a lot to organize area fundraising events, and she asked me to make a quick design that they could use for their February dinner dance event. It was just a quick request to make something if I had time, so the logo isn’t as polished (more…)
My main project this summer was to design a new look for the local telecom company Globalinx. They wanted something fresh and nimble, something that would set them far apart from other telecoms. The site structure was set up to have four different branches, one for each customer base (one of which would go off to another site), (more…)
As you will now notice, I’ve updated my blog design, replaced the rest of the site with WordPress pages, and moved the whole thing up under rockettium.net instead of rockettium.net/wordpress. There are a few reasons for this.
The main one is that I made the blog and portfolio designs (more…)
I didn’t think to post the news when I got it a couple of weeks ago (my mom has been telling me to update my blog more often…), but two of the sites I designed at Accuraty won awards from the Content Management System Association. Accuraty won awards for four of their sites in each’s division (all that were submitted!): (more…)
There hasn’t been too much to write here because when I’m not at work, I’ve been working on a big secretive freelance project. And when I’m not doing either of those, I’ve been saving that time to relax and read the Song of Ice and Fire books.
So, on to my freelance project for a startup called Twake. (more…)
