What have you always wanted to work on?
If you had your choice of any project in the world to work on, what would it be? Here’s my top three…
- A superhero website, preferably Superman. I’m a long-time comic book reader, and I’ve loved Superman since I was old enough to read. I could quote any line from any Superman movie, comic, or cartoon that was out. When asked about my age, I would even go so far as to say, “I’m over 21” (hat tip to Superman: The Movie). A Superman web site would be a dream come true. Fantastic concept art that already exists or can even be created, huge existing fan-base, brilliant writers to shape content… what more could you ask for? (Anyone from DC listening? :-)
- A Nike or Team Jordan site. Just before starting college, I came across a wealth of Nike sites and was immediately. I resolved that right after school, I would move out to Portland and try to get a job at Nike. I’d be relentless until I got it. I soon learned that it wasn’t always Nike’s in-house team that did their sites, but a whole host of outsourced work. I’d love the chance to prove that a Nike site can also be accessible, usable, and extensible, contrary to popular opinion. And be done all in Flash to boot.
- A small portfolio for a writer or a poet. I’m talking content-rich, not content-heavy. I”d love a 6-page, no-CMS, typographic experiment where each page can be designed and styled individually. It’d be an exercise in precision, carefully typesetting on the web through a mixture of browser text, image replacement, and experimental layout and typography. How typographically precise can you be on the web without sacrificing all the inherent benefits? A project like this would really challenge that charge.
What about you? Be specific!
