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.

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.
