I absolutely love variable fonts and their application in video. Unfortunately, since they are a very
new technology, no video editing programs support them, so I programmed this animation in the excellent
python scripting environment DrawBot.
My first collaboration with Goodhertz co-founder Devin Kerr, this iOS app took Devin's academic research
in crossfeed listening and turned it into a consumer-oriented listening app full of innovative interface
elements for controlling the stereo signal of music. However, it came at a time when the world was
changing rapidly to streaming services that disallowed modification of the streaming content, so the app
has now been discontinued.
Directly after graduating from college, I worked on a website cataloging gothic churches in France. The
work involved a lot of programming as well as design, and a deep familiarity with the Google Maps API,
since the project lead, Prof. Stephen Murray, wanted to convey on a map how the defined geopolitical
spaces of that time were much more nebulous than we now give them credit for.
In my first year of college, I wrote this paper about the use of color as a wayfinding mechanism in the
original (pre-Helvetica) New York City subway system for an introduction to archaeology class. It's full
of terrible academic writing but the topic was incredibly fun to research.
