Crosswise

PROJECT: Logo, web site, data visualizations

ROLE: Designer, programmer

For my Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Design & Technology at Parsons School of Design, my thesis research project was software called Crosswise, an event calendar and planner with powerful data visualization options. The goal was to improve community events through better planning, as well as highlight opportunities for collaboration between organizations.

Crosswise never passed alpha status, although I demonstrated it at a Linux Penguin Day in NYC, where it was well received. It relied on a PHP and MySQL back-end with an HTML/CSS/JS front-end that utilized Flash for data visualizations.

The only thing left that still works is the logo.
