Creating ads. with Edge Animate!

I was very excited on using this program to create ads. And now I really find out why Flash is disappearing. With this program you can easily animate with JavaScript. The best part is that the Js is created automatically :p

Edge Animate reminds when I used to create cds with Director. Good times… but now Im glad I didn’t follow this path because cd-roms are disappearing :/
Animating things is something I really enjoy 🙂

For this homework I developed a 15 seconds banner ad for a Smartphone.

A Typographic Web Assignment

On this assignment from my web-prototyping class I was asked to create a typography-based stylesheet for web and mobile content using one to two embedded typefaces for an article of my choice.

I styled the text using CSS properties such as


font-size (px, em)



font vs background color





word spacing



margin spacing


I had to take into consideration that the typefaces chosen would look good together. So I aimed for CONCORD – typefaces that have different but complementary characteristics – for my main content. I’m not sure yet if I was successful, because maybe I just got into a CONFLICT of typefaces between my paragraphs <p> and the subheadings<h2>, since they are a bit too similar.

I also use a CONTRAST with the typeface chosen for the quotes in the button of the article.

Let me know what you think 🙂
