My Role

UI DesignFlash Development

I was an independent contractor working remotely on this project. A basic wireframe, creative direction and a massive excel file was initially provided. I developed the wireframe further, created the visual design, produced the xml using a database, and finally programmed the application in Flash using Object-oriented AS3 with MVC.
