Billboard sharing idea
I trialled Stids in 2011 by sharing a billboard poster and opened up the OOH advertising market for several small buyers. Now I develop this with a new online web interface for buying campaigns on bus-stop posters.
Select location, range and timeframe then offer a spend amount. Offers are collected from buyers and combined with SignKick data about available slots to fund the next slots with the most daily impressions. When a slot is bought the Mondrianiser solution generates a shared layout giving buyers squareish areas at the same rates.

Software application prototype
The application reads .ics calendar files and draws a chronological list view. The event details panel uses a dictionary of emoji to depict words in event titles, and lets you rate your events with stars. The event list can be filtered and sorted by durations and ratings and shows statistics. Beneath the list is a graph plotting event ratings against time.
The project is a way for me to keep track of how I am spending time with the intent to follow changes. During life changes it is helpful to construct a narrative and in this way hold a steady view and the software makes an easy way to follow the high points. I gave a video presentation, conducted user testing and collected feedback.

Responsive band website
Launched to coincide with an imminent concert: Squarepusher at Troxy in London’s eastend. The brief was to lift the design from the musicians’ other band’s existing site. This was adapted easily in a few days with the addition of a videos page.
An editor account was setup on the website using Perch CMS, allowing very easy administration by the band. The website’s support for multiple screen sizes is highly effective and familiar. Efficient use of YouTube players and minimum external dependancies to increase maintainability.

An intense way for Super Best Friends Club to engage its fans and visitors in mailing list campaigns, live dates and entrancing fusion music. It’s easy for them to manage using the bespoke Perch CMS implementation.
The experience is designed and tested to work on various Android handsets with diverse hardware specifications and uses code practices that are robust and dependable requiring minimal maintenance and external dependencies.

Interactive graphic demonstration
A plot of sun angle for everyday in the year with sun altitude tracked in real-time by an animated yellow circle. Solstices, equinoxes and user events are added as labels to specific points on the curve.
The graphic starts with a very compressed overview that can be magnified to stretch out hours across the screen in broad arcs. Accurate seasons times are coloured in the background.
