Samples of My Work

Keek Messenger

Developed a browser based client for the Keek Messenger service from the ground up using a modified Backbone application structure. You'll need an account to use the messenger, but here are some screenshots of its design as of August 2013 (screenshot 1 screenshot 2 screenshot 3). Code samples are available upon request.

Keek homepage

Implemented a complete redesign of the Keek homepage, including a jQuery image slider and tab interface.

Keek header navigation

Implemented a new header navigation bar for the Keek website. It is fixed to the top of the page while scrolling, and it is also resized responsively while shrinking the window. I was responsible for designing and implementing the responsive states of the header, including CSS transitions on resized elements.

Keek login, signup, and welcome steps

A redesign of the login, signup, and post-signup welcome steps involving all new HTML, CSS, and JavaScript including client-side validation.

Keek stats page (requires account)

An indepth stats page for users, using the Highcharts library for graphs and custom built tables for other data.

Good Food People (requires mobile device or user agent spoofing)

A mobile site for Sobeys promoting a new line of concept stores. The site contains a Departments section with numerous articles and how-to videos showing customers how to select and pair food items.
