Be it for a web application, a brand, or just information, interfaces have been a large part of my work on the web and in print. Here are a select few of mine:
I make stories for the monitor and page, through:
Web application developed to assist MCCC faculty in creating Course Alignment Documents. Allows interactive input of repetitive elements and granular building of document sections.
Frontend was developed with vanilla JS, jQueryUI, and Semantic UI. Backend was developed with PHP, using TinyButStrong and its OpenTBS plugin to produce the document files.
With MercerOnline providing content and support, I created a site for MCCC which provides teaching resources, LMS support resources, and training information. The site is also the home of various conferences held at the college, including the Engaging Learners in the 21st Century conference and the Leaders Symposium.
Portfolio website and logo for Melissa De Leon, a greater NYC area independent filmmaker with experience in producing, writing, and being a production assistant. Give her a shout!
Graphic created for the independent documentary Gear Girls, currently in production. Also in use by the subject of the doc, an all-girls, all-PoC robotics team.
Video games have been my passion since I was a toddler, my first games finally being designed in college. I’ve run the gamut since then; from level progression and layout, to 2D/3D asset creation, to music, to voiceover, to writing, the list goes on.
The following is a selection of the games I’ve made, with more on my Itch.io page:
A reimagining/retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk made with Twine! The Sieve and the Siphon takes the source material and turns it on its head, reimagining all aspects I saw fit to. The theme of the jam was to “retell a fairy tale or legend.” You can play it right in your browser!
A survival-horror-ish adventure made with the Godot engine! The Labyrinthine Night pits you against a winding forest maze as you search for your lost family members. This was intended for entry into No Excuses Game Jam 1, which had the theme “lost family”. Try your luck on Windows, Mac, or Linux!
My first game made with the Godot engine! This game is a not-exhaustive-at-all synopsis of my grade school years, with gameplay heavily inspired by the WarioWare series. It was intended for entry into CFN Game Jam 1, which had the theme “growing up”. You can give it a go on Windows, Mac, or Linux!
Currently I’m working on an ARPG in the style of Diablo and Torchlight, which is in the last stages of pre-production planning. Also in planning is an autobiographical adventure heavily inspired by elements of Makai Toushi SaGa and the Star Ocean series.
Giving life to a world through whatever becomes my medium, on the monitor or the page, tends to be done visually, but the written word is where those worlds start in my process.
My blog is home to my prose, poetry, and other musings, so head there if you’d like to peruse my written work.
I’ve always enjoyed listening to music and doing VO over text-heavy games, so it’s been fun to jump into creating audio for my own works.
For voiceovers, compositions, and more, you can give my SoundCloud a listen along with my choice picks below!
