Horizontal Menu with a Dynamic Number of Elements Fit As 100% Evenly

September 6th, 2012

Yikes, that title is a mouthful. So why would one need a menu that has elements fit as 100%? Well, for aesthetic reasons primarily. Unfortunately (fortunately), since tables are no longer around, this has been a big issue for some web designers – especially for those who design for content management platforms or sites that have a menu that changes a lot. Sure, it’s easy to hard code widths in for each menu, but this breaks each time you want to add or remove a item from your menu. Here’s the solution:

The Greater Force - Still #2

The Greater Force

A video project that required seemingly random lyrics/speech mixed with an audio track – a reference to Dadaism. I used some elements in my music track from my electronic music project “Tanooki Rebirth“. So, essentially it could be classified as chiptune with elements of techno and spoken word. My dance moves are killer, no? Exhibited […]

"Keyboard Fractals" Video Still

UNDATA

Raw data are numbers, characters, images or other forms of output. Computer programs interpret this data based on instructions in the programming. What happens when these programs do not know how to interpret this data? What happens if you manually manipulate these raw data forms of numbers and characters? This deliberate corruption gives new understanding […]

UNDATAME Preview

UNDATAME

UNDATAME is a typefaced developed and designed as part of my other project entitled, “UNDATA”. As the typeface outlived the project in terms of new development, I decided to make its own seperate showcase page. The typeface has a pixelated, yet abstract and geometric feel to it, but delves into the “glitch” or “corrupted” aesthetic. […]

Vertically Aligning Content in a Floated Element

August 26th, 2012

Vertical alignment is a pretty weird thing. It usually only works within table elements depending on the browser. It’s even harder to get working when you are using floats. There’s a cool work-around that is available at your disposal if you do need to use vertical alignment.

Pattern Backing of Stickers

Anti-Consumer

In an effort use our assignment requirements loosely, many creative ideas were thrown around until not only did my project turn into stickers rather than a poster, but also fighting consumerism rather than war. I began looking at symbols and characters from […]
