"Arts Trail" was a 2013 exhibitions series from the graduates of Multimedia, Visual Communications, Architectural Technology, Interior Architecture, Fine Arts and Ceramic Design. I designed and built the website as a long vertical one-pager using the branding provided by the 3 departments involved. I also built a micro-CMS using PHP and MySQL to simplify the upload of student info.
My Bachelor project, The Night Life Project, was a collaborative animation project where we crowdsourced paintings of space using the project website, which were then used as the backgrounds in our animated film, Night Life, about the adventures of two young alien characters through space. Working with Ken Kidney, Robert McGrath and Mitchell Galavan, I built the website and interactivity (HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, PHP, MySQL), as well as the dynamic video playback, and also had a part in animating some of the scenes (finding Earth, the rooster, and the child).
Thinksaurus was an animation/information design project, in which I was to conceptualise a product or service for use as a creativity and ideation aid. The visual assets were created in Adobe Illustrator and animated in Adobe Flash. The idea, adapted to a smartphone app concept, went on to be a finalist in the Cork Institute of Technology's "APPrentice" app competition.
Cistin (Irish for kitchen) is a Business Innovation project which I worked on with Ken Kidney, Hazel O'Keeffe and Clemens Anzmann, where we created a business plan for an electronic kitchen inventory system. The project was a finalist in the 2012 CIT Prize for Innovation, where we pitched the concept to business professionals and presented a stand showcasing the idea. My main role in the project was branding and poster design.
Day Display was a project in association with the COPE Foundation for the Leonardo Da Vinci Program VET4D Project. Teamed with Matthew Corbett, Robert McGrath and Ray Flanagan, our brief was to create a digital timekeeping and scheduling solution for people with learning disabilities. Working with the Doras training centre, my role was the programming of the website and app, which went on to be presented at the project's 4th Action Meeting in the Czech Republic.
"The Short Arm of the Law" is a short animated film. Working with Ken Kidney and Matthew Corbett, the animation was produced in Adobe Flash with graphics created in Adobe Illustrator, and shows the story of a typical night out for a baby police officer. I was responsible for the character design and character animation, and I also voiced the baby.
