Ian's Miscellaneous Projects:

An assortment of projects I did for fun.

MyArtPortfolio.org

My friend Shaun Doiron asked me to make a portfolio website for his art. After designing and front-end coding his website, I decided to take my work a step further and turn his website into a website platform where all of my artist friends can instantly create their own art portfolio website just like Shaun's. Like my Freespiriter app, I decided to make it 100% white label where colors, branding, and domain names are all customizable.

Freespiriter.com

Back when I first started freelancing, I was scheduling meetings with prospective clients a lot. I obviously couldn't afford a secretary – nor could I afford something as inexpensive as an online booking app service. Even if I did pay for one of these services, I couldn't find one that gave me both my own domain AND the ability to style the page according to my branding. So, I decided to make my own booking app!

I have since taken the project offline due to lack of use and ability to commit to maintenance, but I have uploaded the full source code on GitHub if you'd like to run your own white label booking app powered by Rails.

Starflies Rick

In the summer of 2017 I was at the beginning stages of being completely burned out by Stridr. I needed a break, I needed to exercise the other half of my brain. This page was the result of that.

Typography Basics

My second ever graphic design project involved creating a fictional poster for The Cooper Union's annual typography conference. I decided I wanted my poster to have a QR code. This page is where the QR code goes to; a website about the basics of typography. The website's designs are centered entirely around the poster.
