Inkjoy Gel Pens

Website Development

The Inkjoy Gel Pen website was assigned to the team I belonged to on the parent company. I was given the designs and a built out backend.

Challenge

One of the key features of the site is the ability to change the user's expirence based on pen color selection. In addition to the functionality the user needed to have the ability to share that specific pen and color via social media.

Solution

The plugin we were using for social media sharing did not support the use of hashes. I was able to create a unique hash based on the color selected and pass that to a custom function that created a dynamic link that was then posted to the social media outlet selected.

Challenge

The microsite was a single page site but required the ability to show different sections based on URL.

Solution

I used a method that I typically use with deep linking which is to use the hash parameter of the URL to display content.

Livebarre

iOS Application

Livebarre is a music streaming, specifically a concert streaming application. The app and branding were created by me as well as the complimenting website. This project was my first start-up venture and although it did not take off the way I hoped, it was still my most successful project. Everything I know about running a start-up is the result of this app.

Challenge

Create a unique concert viewing experience that users couldn't get by searching videos on youtube.

Foster a relationship with record labels for the right to use videos from the venue cameras of the performance, thus giving the user the best quality video possible. In addition to these video's the app has an easy to use search functionality and unlike that of youtube content was not provided by user uploads, making meta tags and searching as highly optimised as possible.
