Web Application Development


July 2016 - Dec. 2017

Stridr was a web application that looked at everything you like on social media and presented it all in a single, chronological feed. It made suggestions for new things you might like, and offered fine grain customization over your aggregated social feed. Before being set aside, Stridr's powerful back end was being utilized for creating mobile versions on Android and iOS.

Front-End Web Development

NIC Interactive Media

June 2017 - Aug. 2017

North Island College's Interactive Media program is the reason Objektiv Digital exists. After killing it in a class project with Matt Boucher and Brittany King aimed to re-design the program's website, the program hired us as interns to re-design the website for real. Led by instructor Megan Wilson, we re-designed our re-design to conform with college policies and to make it clear and understandable to an international audience.
