Here is a simple animated banner that I created by using a supplied PDF of an actual print ad. The banner ad is designed for the website that has a white background. The banner was tweaked in Illustrator and finalized in Fireworks.
Dragonflyworkshops.org is an online learning community website for Earth Expeditions and the GFP and AIP Master’s program at Miami University. The Site is designed on ruby on rails. I revised the look that is completely css based for speed. I also fixed and tweaked compatibility so that it works in all browsers without serious hacks. (Read IE8 compatibility). This was the first phase of the redesign. Next we are adding a ePortfoltio section for the students where they can build/create their final project as well as share resumes with potential employers. The update was designed in Adobe Illustrator and hand coded using standards compliant CSS.
Here is the intro movie (non-functional) for the poster creator that our team built for the (6) 32″ touchscreens at the Cincinnati Zoo in the Manatee Exhibit. It allows zoo visitors to create manatee based conservation poster that can be emailed to friends and families. I did all the flash graphics and animations and overall look for the Adobe Air based flash interactive. The design work was done in Adobe Illustrator, Flash Professional and compiled in Flash Builder as an Adobe Air App. This interactive is a stand alone application at the zoo and an online flash interactive at wildresearch.org.
