This was my first paid project of creating a Flash-like interactive presentation but without using Flash. The client gave me the plans for this presentation and asked me to figure out what tools & tech to use to get it done, I chose Adobe Edge and of course HTML/CSS for the static intro pages for each presentation. There were some limitations with Edge but I got around them by bringing in jQuery. Interactive presentations are some of my favorite challenges.
Technology & Skills Involved:
  • HTML5
  • CSS
  • Adobe Edge (early version of Adobe Animate)
  • JavaScript/jQuery
  • Photoshop

I chose to give it a Genesis framework, my boss chose a Genesis theme (from studiopress.com) to put with it as a child theme for me to customize and put it on a WordPress hosting plan. Worked with the CEO to boost the loading speed and performance and SEO of this site which ranks as the top house cleaning company in the Portland metro area.

2009 - 2011
Freelance Flash Designer

I was first hired on as a freelancer to make updates to this architecture firm's Flash website, then further down the road they had me redo the whole thing with a specific, premium Flash template.

It was a very interesting challenge that kept me very busy because the template needed a lot of customization yet it wasn't meant to be customized further, so I had to 'hack' a lot of intentional spaghetti code (ActionScript). That version of the site has since been rebuilt to a non-Flash version by other designers.

I found this project in my work history worth noting because it involved some rather complicated, conditional coding. An example of a project in which I had to learn a lot in the middle of the project.

Technology & Skills Involved:
  • Flash
  • Photoshop
  • ActionScript 2
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • XML
