Graphic Design: CSS Grid Print-To-Web Experiments

May 30, 2018 6:23 pm Published by

To get better acquainted with it, I started some print-to-web experiments. Each item is a different design approach highlighting my different skill sets and aptitudes. The last is a statistical series which I can imagine playing on subway station kiosks or bus shelters.

Graphic Design: Content Portability & the Information Hierarchy

January 9, 2015 6:57 pm Published by

There are many ways to say the same thing. I designed and coded these examples for my students to demonstrate the idea of "portability of content", to get them thinking about the information hierarchy and simultaneous uses of data in layout design. For each design, there are the same 7 sections in the information hierarchy. The HTML in each of these designs is 100% the same - all that changes is the CSS.

Print to Web Experiments: Future-Proof Solutions

July 29, 2014 7:09 pm Published by

A big part of teaching emergent communication (and programming) to college design majors is getting the students comfortable with the new paradigm that virtually all future design will be executed by code. They have to learn basic programming skills at the very least to be competitive. These screenshots are from work I designed and executed for class lectures toward that end: I took print ads, album covers and book covers and reproduced them with HTML5, jQuery and CSS3. Then the students created their own fully-coded versions, recycling dying media into future-proof solutions.
