"Arts Trail" was a 2013 exhibitions series from the graduates of Multimedia, Visual Communications, Architectural Technology, Interior Architecture, Fine Arts and Ceramic. 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.
A Granite Digital project, Blarney Woollen Mills is a highly successful online Irish gifts shop. Working alongside Developer Gary Corcoran and Designer Fiona Dixon, I was responsible for many of the key features of the E-commerce UX of the site, including the product search, product filters, users sign-up and checkout, and Realex Payments integration. I was also responsible for making Fiona's design mobile-ready and responsive.
My Bachelor work, The Night Life Project, was a collaborative animation project where we crowdsourced paintings of space using the paint tool on the project website, which were then displayed at random as the backgrounds in our animated film, Night Life, about the adventures of two young star-like 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, though I also had a part in animating some of the scenes (finding Earth, the rooster, and the child) using Adobe Flash.
Thinksaurus is a solo animation/information design project from 2011, 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 from 2011/2012 which I worked on with Ken Kidney, Hazel O'Keeffe and Clemens Anzmann. For the project, we conceptualised and prepared a business plan for an electronic kitchen inventory system for both commercial and domestic users. The project went on to be a finalist in the 2012 CIT Prize for Innovation, where we pitched the concept to business professionals and presented a stand showcasing the product idea. My main responsibility in the project was branding and poster design.
Day Display is a 2011 project in association with the Cork branch of the COPE Foundation for the Leonardo Da Vinci Program VET4D Project. In a team with Matthew Corbett, Robert McGrath and Ray Flanagan, our brief was to create a digital media solution to timekeeping and scheduling for people with learning disabilities. Working with the Doras training centre, we created a website and Android application. My responsibility was the programming of the website and app, which went on to be presented at the project's 4th Action Meeting in Chroustovice in the Czech Republic.
"The Short Arm of the Law" is an animation project from 2010 by myself, Ken Kidney and Matthew Corbett. Completed in Adobe Flash with graphics created in Adobe Illustrator, the short animation shows the story of a typical night out for a baby police officer.
For this project I was responsible for the character design and character animation. (I also voiced the baby...)
