The Rivertones site redesign

I was approached by The Rivertones Harmony Chorus, a local barbershop singing group, to redesign their current website. A relatively small website to promote the group, I designed a new, fresher look to the site built on a fluid grid with media queries to provide responsiveness. I also implemented a Wordpress blog into the site and PHP contact form for booking and membership enquiries.

KMG SPORTS - Final Year Degree project

rivertones snapshot

I created a web application for my final year degree project. The application is a design tool built in the HTML canvas API using the Kinetic.JS framework with the possibility for users to design t-shirts and logos from various image templates. A considerable amount of the application uses JavaScript code to interact with the canvas and allow users to dynamically add shapes, text and images, which can be edited via the user interface. The application utilises various technologies and software including the KineticJS Framework, Codekit, Photoshop, Illustrator, Sass, Mamp, Sublime Text Editor.
