Through a Friend: Application Specs
Through a Friend is a Facebook application that David conceptualized and managed the development of. He created detailed specifications to direct the development of the application. In addition to the Use Case, User Flows, and Interface Mockups that were included in the specifications document, he also modeled User Personas and User Requirements Documents as part of the Product Development process.
Through a Friend: Front-end Graphics and Development
David tasked himself with doing the front-end graphics, XHTML, FBML, and CSS for development of the Through a Friend application.
David created the front-end graphics and User Interface for SustainLane.com, which is like a Yelp.com for green products. He also did JSP/XHTML/CSS development; played roles as Product Manager and Analytics Manager; and created “dream” screenshots for promotional materials. The current state of SustainLane.com may not represent David’s work.
David was behind the brand of the startup, WorkMetro (acquired by Jobing, Inc. in January 2008) from its beginning. He was in charge of design of the logos; corporate website; trade show displays; sales materials; advertisements for print, online, and outdoor; motion graphics for television commercials; photographic art direction and talent casting; and the website UI, for WorkMetro’s network of 22 locally-targeted markets.
What about XYZ?
No, this isn’t anywhere near all of David’s work. We’re probably missing a few things, but he’s done logos; print work like brochures and newsletters; XHTML/CSS programming; basic programming in PHP, JSP, and Python/Django; wayfinding signage programs; architectural installations; tradeshow displays; motion graphics; Google Analytics implementation and management; Google AdWords campaign management; Google AdSense monetization; photo art-direction; viral video production; and even Photoshopped the anus off of a cow (which wasn’t his idea at all). He likes to think of himself as a Swiss-Army Knife, but we happen to know that he can’t cork a wine bottle worth a damn.
