Russo | Wiki

My teaching wiki provides a lot of room for getting creative with syllabuses. I can add images, bits of color, and adjust the fonts to fit class themes. I try not to go overboard, since syllabus documentation needs to be information forward. I simply paste the template into markup, then fill in the relevant data. The Infobox renders automagically.  I … Read More

Bonk | Videogame

It’s old-school design. ♡ It’s forever a pleasure working with professional food … Read More

Harvest Bistro

I also established their webpresence — hooking the Harvest site into Yelp, TripAdvisor, and the most popular review services. Unfortunately, Harvest Bistro didn’t last long. (I’m 99.9% certain it had nothing to do with me). The Internet Archive has a broken version of the site, without content, headers, images, or anything else worth looking at.

Guess the Fruit

There are a lot of excellent tools for designing color palettes: colourlovers / coolors / colormind / colorpalettes / etcetera. Some of these tools allow you to upload pics or create schemes from scratch. I am currently working on a website for a local restaurant. The owner wants natural colors —mostly greens and browns. So I’ve been finding and creating food-flavored palettes. Here are are few that … Read More
