Here is another StoryMap, featuring journal entries from the 3 1/2 days it took me to get to California from Washington DC on an open-ended Greyhound bus trip I took around the USA in 1993.
I rode from coast to coast and back in 11 days, these are dispatches from the 1st 1/2 of that trip.

I designed the "We Can Moo It" T shirt for the 2017 Walk To End Alzheimers.
The shirt company gave me a lot of grief about copyright, despite the image being owned by the National Archives; despite my changing 25% of the main text, and despite a font change in the main headline.
Legal heads prevailed, and the shirts were a big success.

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.

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.

This interactive map shows where people of specific surnames lived in Ireland in the 19th century, according to parish records. I scraped a static dataset from the Irish Times website, and built a much more interesting way to view the same information, with additional insights provided by clustering of semi-opaque colored markers. The dataset has 4 pieces of information: latitude, longitude, name of parish and number of family surnames in that parish.

I used a collection of old maps of Washington DC for this Rubiks Cube code experiment from Google Chrome Labs. It would seem to make the game exponentially harder, especially if one does not know old Washington DC.

For this project highlighting the music I've written and performed over the years, I used Adobe After Effects + Flash ActionScript3 programming to create the live wave form animations. This song and the others on this site all use this function.

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.
