  • YBCA:You Mobile and Small Screen Friendly Launch

    Vernal Creative has updated the YBCA:You arts experience sharing site to enhance the experience on small screens. From my perspective this was mostly about making sure the jQuery-powered features worked well. The full size site uses some modals, which don’t work well on small screens, so I reworked those to be a sort of pseudo-modal […]

  • Focus on Land in Africa – Flash rescue

    We (Vernal creative) convert the old Flash website to WordPress. Using AJAX we’re able to preserve and even enhance the interactivity, while reaping the mobile and search engine benefits of WordPress.

  • Namati – Innovations in Legal Empowerment

    This is my first BuddyPress site, made once again in cahoots with vernal creative and free range studios. The social functions let member organizations share ideas and tools, while non-member visitors may browse the organization directory, tools, publications, blog, news, and more. The interface sports a couple of varieties of jQuery sliders, data tables, custom […]

  • YBCA: YOU – An event commentary site

    I worked with Vernal recently to implement this member site that provides “an online logbook for keeping track of your artistic experiences”. There were no maps here, but a lot of jQuery work to provide front end forms with a nice user experience. Event logic is always a challenge on the server side, but worked […]

  • Messages in Motion on Philanthroper.com

    Messages in Motion, a Geo Mashup client, is featured on Philanthroper.com today.

  • Global Citizen Year Rebuild with Isotope Fun

    This great program for kids to spend a year abroad between high school and college was ready for a rebuild of their prior site to simplify management and of course add some new candy at the same time. I got the go-ahead to play with the great Isotope jQuery plugin. Try out the filters on […]

  • RSF impact map adds content flow, AJAX loading, and more

    Ever seen a map of custom markers synchronized with thumbnail images in a content flow that dynamically loads content including tabs, post listings, and a slide show? I hadn’t either! I was not certain it could be done, but perseverance paid off. The map is tied to the thumbnails, so an item selected in either […]

  • Portfolio 21 Investments Launched

    This is the first investment site I’ve worked on, and it required some real learning for me and my partner at Vernal Creative. When money, investment, and regulation enter the picture, a new level of rigor and attention to detail are required. This only improved the end result. I did the front end (jQuery) and […]

  • Hackathon Hangover

    I’ve had enough of my computer at the moment…yet I think that’s interesting enough to post about. Intellectually I know that Hack4Reno, a 24-hour competition to build an application that benefits the city, was a great experience. I pushed my limits and with a team of 4 (and much needed assistance from a talented roving […]

  • urb.is – experiences from Reykjavík, Iceland

    This is a Geo Mashup site focused on Iceland’s capital city. I implemented a custom info window with the nice touch of a colored border to match the color of the clicked marker. This is a great example of a site that uses Geo Mashup well with just a touch of customization to make it […]
