Posted by on Nov 15, 2013 in Code, Snippets, Web Design | No Comments

I really like this blog’s (my old) theme. It was developed by Jeff Star about five years ago. So when I read this article on Smashing Magazine about how to upgrade a WordPress theme to HTML5 I thought I’d update Minimalist. I changed the form styling, and some of the typography, but it’s mostly unchanged […]

This site is truly amazing. Wonderfl is an online ActionScript compiler with an interface that encourages code-sharing. It’s an online community for ActionScript developers. The game above is as sophisticated as the old arcade game that inspired it and you can peek under the hood at the code that makes it work ( to play […]

E-cards can be kind of cheesy and paper cards are a little…flat.  That’s why I created a web app called 3DeeCards that lets you create a card with a 3D augmented reality object inside that you can print out and send to a friend.  I came up with the concept, developed the logo and designed […]
