Stuff that I've built

I've built small sites and big sites, but recently I've focused primarily on highly interactive pages for tablets. Here are a few.

  • Muppets Most Wanted

    Eleven giant, @2X character images made transparent PNGs prohibitively large for this embedded HTML page, but JPEGs in conjunction with CSS masks achieved the same effect at 1/10th the file size. Design by Shawn Hickman

  • Courtney Says I Do

    Fun interactions go a long way to make the simple polls at the center of this embedded HTML promotion engaging enough to keep thousands of fans coming back each week. Design by Shawn Hickman

  • QVC 2014 Red Carpet Event

    This embedded HTML page was designed to blend seamlessly with the surrounding native app. Design by Shawn Hickman

  • Suggestomatic

    I also develop for fun. A Twitter-bot experiment, @suggestomatic will respond to incomplete queries with a screenshot of Google's suggested searches. Logo by Shawn Hickman
