Flash CS3

HP Print Studio

All of the printable assets for this HP Adobe Flex app, are created and delivered via Adobe In-Design. HP needed a quick an easy way port these assets into Print Studio using XML to describe and re-create each printable piece. I was called upon to create a automated solution to this problem. Using Adobe’s Extended Scripting Language (based on JavaScript) I wrote a script that would run in Adobe In-Design and create an XML document, that could be read by Print Studio.

Josh Davis Flash
Flash CS3

I created this great little Flash piece too display Josh Davis's artwork for HP's Digital Printing Campaign.

Nifty little experimental website. I used some very different ideas for the design and UI. This site is an incomplete demo site, but the about path is complete. Hint: Slide the Rocks

Zen Garden
Flash 8 Professional

Reveal and Win Game, created as an online interactive promotion. Drag the rake over the Zen Garden to see if you are a winner.

Flash MX/XML

To make this demo a little more entertaining I use Classic Rock Trivia as the subject matter. This E-Learning module is driven by XML so it can be easily updated and changed. It takes e-learing into a completely multimedia experience with pictures and sound, and could also include video. Not only does it show you overall results, but it also breaks your score down into categories, so the end user can visually see areas where they can use improvement.

Talking Web Character
Director MX 2004/Flash MX 20004

Requires Shockwave Player 10. Talking Character built originally as part of a CD based trivia game. I adapted this character to run on the web for demo purposes. You type it he'll say it.

Your best score is tracked by fewest turns to match all 12 pairs, and by your best time. After you match each pair of animals, you can click on the animal picture and hear the sound that animal makes.

Web Streaming Radio
Flash MX 2004/XML

Requires Flash Player 7. An editable XML playlist, drives this web based streaming MP3 player, built with Flash MX 2004. The player grabs the MP3's ID3 tags to display information, such as Artist, Song, Album, and Genre. A 150 X 150 jpeg of the album cover can be displayed for each song. One could set-up a web based radio station with no special sever-side software.

HTML and Flash 5.0

The objective here was to create a web-based training course to educate retail sales representatives of the Siemens Corporation on the features, functions, and benefits of the SpeedStream Home Networking Product Line. As well as designing the look and feel and creating the HTML, I designed and created the quiz piece using Macromedia Flash 5.0. I created the flash quiz so that the client could quickly and easily update the quiz by editing a simple text file.

Director 8.0 Shockwave Studio

I started this shoot-em-up game just for fun. It is still in need of sound, special effects, a ton of graphic work, and general tweaking, but it does demonstrate the basic game building skills.
Move the mouse right and left to control the gun ship.

Flash Custom Timer Components
Flash MX 20004

Timers are something I use quite a bit. So, I built two timer components, the standard timer simply keeps track of how long something is taking place. The Count Down Timer, counts down in seconds, and triggers an event when it hits zero.

ANSi Art

ANSi Art

Dave aka hoaks was a member of iCE in 1994 and 1995. iCE Advertisements is a digital art group formed in 1991. Although the expanded title is rarely ever used, iCE is an acronym for Insane Creators Enterprise. iCE, along with ACiD Productions, has been one of the most prominent and critically successful groups on the underground computer artscene.The group originally specialized in the creation of ANSI artwork for BBSes and MCGA graphics. During the BBS-era, their biggest competitor was ACiD Productions

ANSI art is a computer artform that was widely used at one time on BBSes. It is similar to ASCII art, but constructed from a larger set of 256 letters, numbers, and symbols — all codes found in IBM code page 437, often referred to as extended ASCII and used in MS-DOS environments. ANSI art also contains special ANSI escape codes that color text with the 16 foreground and 8 background colours offered by ANSI.SYS, an MS-DOS device driver loosely based upon the ANSI X3.64 standard for text terminals. Some ANSI artists take advantage of the cursor control sequences within ANSI X3.64 in order to create animations, commonly referred to as ANSImations. ANSI art and text files which incorporate ANSI codes carry the de facto .ANS file extension.

Streaming Video

360 Panoramic VR
Director 8.0 Shockwave Studio

I built these as test samples for a client who wanted 360 Panoramic QuickTime VR's. Using Macromedia Director, I created the exact same thing without the additional cost of development software and avoided the need for users to download additional plug-ins for viewing. The result was that these little shockwave pieces worked perfectly for the client's needs and where much smaller, saving download time.

UI Design and Misc. Stuff

Photo Slide Show
Flash MX and XML

I wanted an easy way to share photos with family and friends up north. So, I created this Flash Slide Show piece. I designed it to load the photos dynamically from external files so it could be updated with very little effort. Simply upload the new photos, edit the XML file that stores the photo titles/descriptions and it's done.

Photo Slide Show Version 2.0
Flash MX and XML

Again it's very easy to update: upload the new pictures and edit the XML file and your done. I made the user interface much easier to use, fewer clicks, and much less mouse movement. The pictures will auto scale if they are too big for the screen.
