Page Layouts
Salve Regina University Library
As a summer job, I designed the library page for the school I went to. Highlights include a streamlined interface and layout structure, as well as an interective map and library tour that is used by new students to learn where rooms are located. The main page has since been altered by a large company and most of the functionality has died along with it, but the map and tour are still there.
Then just for fun, I co-designed and ran a fanzine site for the game half-life. It was a fairly popular site and was mentioned in the Complete Gamer UK magazine for unique layout. You can view a copy of that here. Due to excess bandwith that went above the 1 gigabyte per month limit, the site was closed. On a side note, there was a 10 Megabyte space limit so the 1 gig/month bandwith limit was hit entirely through text pages and small images; not a small feat.
The RIYF League
During the Far2Cool time period and a bit after I co-ran the RIYF league, which was a clan where players of Half-life could band together and have organized matches. Unfortunately things didn't work out, but we got some cool site design. The layout changed looks several times and in those changes, there was unique flash and graphic art that formed a comprehensive site.
I stopped doing little jobs on the side and started doing them for a company. This site is for a boat being built that is a replica of a 14th century galleon and will be handicap-accessible for free rides across the ports of America. The site is designed with a flag and rope theme in mind and has a donor database that can be searched as well as added to.
©1980-Y2K by Dann Thombs and Actually I don`t have it copyrighted, I have these imaginary lawyers guys who are all like "yo", he owns this stuff, so like don`t go taking it, or they lawyers will get all wu-tang on you, and then the voice dubbings will be all messed up and no one likes that. Um..I like made the design and I`m going to plug my site now, so go here and view the madness that ensues. There`s like some weird cartoons and some irc stats and logs. The logs are pretty funny because people act so stupid while they`re online, and never realize that it`s all being recorded and then posted on my website. Like one time this canadian got drunk and couldn`t even spell right. Like worse than normal, and it was just so funny but I don`t want to promote alcohol or anything, cause that makes you weird and stuff. Oh yeah, I showed this dude a picture of bostonchick from qcon, and he like kicked me out of the chat channel, but I guess he had a right, she was mad nasty annnnd she was drinking beer, so you see what that does to you. Oh and another time we were thinking of names for half-life 2, and I said Half-life: Won authorization failed, and I felt proud of me cause people liked it cause it`s like so true and stuff. But I haven`t had a problem with WON yet, which is good, since I don`t want to be blocked from multiplayer games because someone else did`t want to shell out the $50 to buy the game. That would be totally bad. But I have heard about people not being able to get one because their WON number got taken But maybe they`re lying, but they try to get mine, and I`m like "no way dude" but they keep trying and ask why not and I have to put my foot down and say "I can`t" and stuff, but cie la swedish and they say. Silly swedish. Oh and channel #half-life is evil so like don`t go there, cause the people are bad, and ban people for any reason, so go to #valve on the undernet cause I`m there, and just say "hey dann" and I`ll say "hey there" or "sup" or something but you`ll want to make sure I`m there first cause if I`m not I won`t be able to say anything, but I think you`re smart and will be able to figure it out and stuff. Hmmm, guess that`s it, bye....
