Founding a Design Lab

I helped to kickstart the Rutgers Writing and Design Lab (RWDL), a forward-thinking multiliteracy center with a focus on digital composition. The RWDL offers face-to-face tutoring for a population of nearly 6,000 students, as well as workshops in document and instructional design.  As a senior consultant, I helped create student videos, craft effective presentations, podcasts, and web publications.

Kickstarting a Digital Studies Center

I helped to kickstart and grow the Rutgers-Camden Digital Studies Center (DiSC), an interdisciplinary, collaborative research, development, and education center. DiSC helps facilitate, support, and promote projects made possible by the convergence of digital technologies within the humanities as well as the arts, natural, and social sciences. Since I was was there at the beginning of the DiSC, I partnered with … Read More

Wall Street Journal – 90s Throwback

Throwback: Adam Janos — of A&E and The Wall Street Journal — contracted me to design “a very ugly old 1990s website on a modern blogging platform with mobile support.” He saw the ‘classic’ version of my own site, and for reasons I cannot fathom, he wanted something similar: gaudy wallpaper, animated .gifs, distracting colors. The ‘classic’ version of Adam’s site is so hideous that … Read More

Carolina Rhetoric

CRC18 organizers asked me to develop a protest-y/glitch-y blog for their rhetoric conference. The theme was public engagement, counter-publics. I had to work within a blue, grey, black, white color scheme. NOTE: Users had the ability to turn the glitch effects on and off for the sake of site readability. Being a student organization, the CRC had no money to spend … Read More

The old version of the website was beautifully coded, but it had a dated aesthetic, and it was in want of support for modern browsers. The … Read More

14 West Restaurant

THROWBACK // The website for 14 West Restaurant and Suites was created before the rise of Squarespace, Wix, and other drag-and-drop tools. The owner of the restaurant wanted classy look with wooden wallpaper and muted, cream colors. 14 West Indianapolis was built from scratch in notepad — using frames! 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.
