"Hate to cuss, but TPM's polltracker is unfuckingbelievable." — Scott Klein, ProPublica
In 2008, I attended the Democratic National Convention in Denver with BAGnewsNotes where I designed and produced live coverage for the popular visual politics blog. I also designed the (now former) BAGnewsNotes identity.
The Hive is essentially a student run booking agency at the University of Chicago. We use university funding to bring bands to campus. Though the Hive is now effectively defunct, during my college career we brought bands such as Animal Collective, The Books, Xiu Xiu, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, The Blow and many more. Before I joined the Hive, it didn't have a website. So I devised a simple and malleable identity which allowed the homepage to morph into infinite variations, based on what the next show would be.
Four times a year, the Midwest Faculty Seminar hosts a conference at the University of Chicago. The topics have ranged from Bollywood to John Rawls to Hurricane Katrina. Starting with my complete redesign of the site last year, I have created custom graphics (particularly a 500x600 splashscreen for the homepage) for each institute. Here are some example homepages I created for the Seminar.
The Center for Teaching and Learning is a division of the college that helps graduate students and junior faculty improve their teaching. While keeping most of the information intact, I rewrote the site in HTML and CSS to improve aesthetics and functionality. The site features an updated seminar and workshop calendar, and users can register for events from within the site. There is also an extensive online tutorial for teaching techniques.
