A Full Life

Posted in projects on 26 May 2013

A Full Life is “a small game exploring the ways in which we experience creating a life for ourselves that’s just full enough, but not too full.” The goal in the game is to attempt to fill up a life to 100% with activities and goals. You only have so much life, though and sometimes things just aren’t quite that easy. Just a quick, exploratory project written in JavaScript/D3. You can play the game here and check out the source here. It’s licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license.

[adjective][species] was created as a blog to explore the furry fandom from the inside. The website includes the blog itself, as well as forums, surveys, and visualizations of those surveys. The blog is run off WordPress, but includes a custom theme and a commissioned banner, but the survey and visualizations were both created on my own. The site has two regular authors - myself and JM - and a few occasional contributors. It also includes tie-ins with Twitter, Google+, and FurAffinity.net.

Visual Résumé

Posted in projects on 18 Apr 2011

For a long time, it has been my perception that all the information that could be portrayed to a potential employer or client could not be conveyed easily with a simple, one page résumé. My original way around this involved setting up a portfolio site which I could provide a link to from my résumé, but this was less than ideal: an update to one required an update to the other, there was no guarantee that the portfolio site would be viewed upon receiving a résumé, and the separation made it difficult for me to express my skills at first glance. Now, I have combined the two - a visual résumé that provides all the information of the former with all the expression of the latter incorporating aspects of design and data visualization. It’s available here.

Collected Visualizations

Posted in projects, visualization on 21 Nov 2010

While my focus in web design has been primarily on data storage and display, I’ve been thinking a lot about what to do with metadata. This has stemmed from a lot of my daily reading, involving several blogs that talk a lot about data visualization. In order to integrate infographics and visualization into my other projects, I’ve been working on simple and complex visualizations of ready-to-use datasets, learning a visualization library or two in the process. This site collects the visualizations that I have so far, which are also listed on this website in the visualization tag. I aim for a simple, monochromatic page for each visualization in order to make them all the clearer, and the design carried through to this simple index. Collected Visualizations is available here
