Fall 2010

So this semester has been a doozy so far. Yeah, I said it, a doozy. The summer ended faster than I could blink my eyes and here I am mid-november not remembering how I got here. Anyway, I thought I'd give a quick update on work stuff and school stuff.

Work stuff:
Jeanette and I finally finished Squash & Beyond today (woo hoo!) We did our best to make it as fun, energetic, user-friendly, and interactive as possible given our client's needs and our time constraints. Zafi, owner of Squash & Beyond, was really happy with the final outcome, which is the best part!

Towards the end of the summer, I teamed up with my brother to re-design my family's grocery store website, Calandro's Supermarket. He and I worked together to make it clean, fresh, and informative. We also caught it up with the times by incorporating social media and allowing more customer interaction. On the old website, customers couldn't find anything they needed nor could they easily send messages and requests to the store. This is hopefully just the first iteration of Calandro's new website. We hope to continuously make it better.

And, for school stuff:
I've been working on my CMU Design Thesis, which attempts to illustrate the Obesity and Food problems we have in the United States. You can track my progress on my thesis blog.

And, lastly, I just did my first full scale Flash project in my prototyping class. It is an exercise tool to help you find new fun activities depending on your mood! You can check it out here.

  1. I agree with your remark about the surprising passage of time; how could it be nearly Thanksgiving already? I, for one, will be glad to have 2010 behind me--definitely a dramatic mixed-bag year (but aren't they all?).

    I promise that if I'm ever down Baton Rouge way, I'll swing by one of the Calandro's Supermarket locations and buy something fantastic! Great job on the Squash & Beyond final product!
