This past year saw two website launches, an animated holiday card, series production on a new Cartoon Network Adult Swim show entitled Tight Bros., as well as animation for Sesame Workshop’s Sesame Street English program.

Launch of Crandall Consulting!

This past Fall, I had the pleasure of working with Natascha Crandall again, this time as the website designer of her new consulting company. Crandall Consulting is a research and consulting firm that is committed to improving the educational quality of entertainment for children. This site was custom designed using WordPress as a content management system and features a central “smartboard” for all content. The background was hand-drawn on paper and colored with crayons and colored pencils, giving the site a homemade, craftsy, feel. Natascha is a joy to work with and her knowledge of research development for chidren’s media is outstanding. Visit Crandall Consulting.

Redesign of Dude, Where’s My Refund?

Dude Where's My Refund Redesign

Dude, Where’s My Refund underwent an official redesign, this time using WordPress as a CMS. The site was designed for Steven Zelin, the Singing CPA, to help taxpayers quickly and easily find out the status of their tax refunds from the IRS and all 50 states. It contains an interactive Flash map of the US, as well as a jump menu alternative for iPhone/iPad users. Visit Dude, Where’s My Refund?

Just For Fun: A Holiday Card for Friends and Family

Just before holiday break, I took a week off and put together this quick Flash animation featuring the swamp friends’ silly performance of a well-known classic. Hope you enjoy!
