Hello

My name is Hillary and I am a web developer. Currently I work at BitTitan. Here is some stuff I've made!

While at Amazon, I was a web developer on the Amazon Creative Services team where I created and updated widgets.

Involvement: HTML/CSS, JavaScript/jQuery, JSP

Process

Wireframes/Mockups

Web design is often about the presentation of information, and so planning and creating mockups for a website is just as important as the final aesthetics. The question 'What goes where?' must be sorted out before even pondering color schemes, graphics, or other aesthetic elements.

Student Tracker

Student Tracker is a student and employee tracking and management tool.

Involvement: Logo and landing page design, theme design

The Process

Logo Ideas and Designs

For the StudentTracker website, the client wanted a clean and modern logo and design to reflect the mobile and easy-to-use qualities of the app. Design begins with brainstorming by identifying images, key words, and ideas that are integral to a product or project, followed by sketches, and then refinement of the selected or preferred alternatives.

Let's Go Indie

Let's Go Indie is a proposed promotion for Zachtronics where the game studio will be "rented out" to an aspiring game designer. One lucky individual (or group) will work directly with the Zachtronics team to turn their idea into a real, marketable game.

Involvement: Design, HTML/CSS/jQuery

Ironclad Tactics' Extra! Extra! Bundle

The Extra! Extra! Bundle, featuring a number of digital and physical goodies, was offered as part of the Ironclad Tactics' launch. As the name suggests, the site was designed with a poster/newspaper theme.

Involvement: Design, HTML/CSS, Copywriting

Zachtronics Store

The Zachtronics Store is an e-commerce site developed to handle sales, customer support, and other functions for Zachtronics. As of 2014, the store has been closed down, and Zachtronics' products are available through other outlets.

Involvement: Design, HTML/CSS
