In the weeks after graduating from The Iron Yard, life has been full of peaks and valleys, sharpening of skills, shameless self-promotion, and a couple of awesome freelance opportunities. I had the pleasure of working with Joe, a graduating Mobile Engineering student in Orlando, on his final project for TIY. He built a game called “Bagel Runner” in which a little toaster has to dodge a bunch of bagels hurdling toward him. I contributed the toaster, bagels, background, and main page/logo illustrations for the game. This project was as much fun to work on as it is to play.

I’ve been thinking about doing a bit of a redesign for my site. Adding more jeuje, as one might say. I find myself sitting up in bed, much to late, drooling over the sites on awwwards.com. Recently I came across jardins-poudriere, a French website for a luxury property development project. I’ll give you a moment to soak that in…

I have an entire bookmarks folder filled with visually stunning and playfully interactive sites like this, that I still visit after months of discovering. Ooo la la, I can’t wait to dive in and see how everything I’m learning will transform the design. Stay tuned!
