adrift (circa 2002)
Adrift is an independent film by
local filmmaker Tom Curran. The sites primary function in
this phase is to provide information about the film and the
Working with an independent filmmaker
usually means a limited budget. This project was no exception.
My challenge was to define the architecture, create the design
direction with multiple iterations, produce all visual elements
and HTML development within the existing budget.
The use of stylized text in the
form of CSS was decided for two reasons.
One reason was budgetary, less visuals = less time & money.
The other was for maintenance. Since those maintaining the
site are not designers, they needed a framework that could
grow with them without much interaction from a designer.
The site has not been updated in
quite some time and there are still some areas that lack content..
