Oto-Wa Taiko is a Japanese drumming group in Ottawa, Ontario. This is a dynamic website, created using AngularJS and navigation based on UI-Router. The site also uses Firebase to manage content, and user accounts for members of the group. The site features a friendly design which suits the desired aesthetic of the art form and brand.
SWL & CB HUMAN LIBRARY
This website was created for a "human library" event co-organized by two schools in Ottawa. The website hosts biographies of many human books for students to read. This gateway was originally static, but was later converted to a full Wordpress installation using custom loops and fields. The site can now be easily edited using WYSIWYG functionality.
This site was created for a student-run TEDx conference. Using a custom version of the Bootstrap frameworking system, the site offered easy to use and accessible content, while maintaining authentic TED branding. The blog portion of the site ran on Wordpress to allow for easy editing by the executives.
This site is no longer active.
COLONEL BY H.S. LIBRARY contributed
The Colonel By library website is used by students as a gateway to useful educational resources. This site is also based off of the Bootstrap framework, and offers a flexible layout solution to meet the needs of any type of content.
This website runs on carefully hand-crafted HTML, CSS, and JS, using nothing but the FlexboxGrid CSS layout framework. The original design saw numerous iterations over the past 7 years, and continues to be improved. The design was carefully thought out and planned, with original ideas and unique colours and typefaces.
Impulse is a 2D physics game based on the popular iOS app, Flappy Bird, written in Swift 2.0. I was interested in trying my hand at making my own app and making it available on the Apple App Store. I decided to create a game based off one of the App Store’s best-selling games, called “Flappy Bird.” I wanted to give the original Flappy Bird concept a striking interface, user customizability, and settings that I would have wanted to see in the original app.
